Wolrd's Smallest and Lowest Cost 100mW RF Module with Micro Controller from D6 Labs
D6 Labs is happy to announce the MRF-900-TCMP RF Module for long range, battery powered applications where size and cost must be minimized. The module includes a 25MHz 8051 micro controller with 64K of flash and 4K of RAM.
At under .5 square inches, it is the smallest micro controller based RF module in the world. The on board micro controller is a 25MHz 8051 with 64K Flash and 4K RAM. It is perfect for battery powered operation, with an operating current of just 600nA with the RTC running. User applications can be written in C or assembly and debugged on chip.
The built in RF transceiver is high performance and offers a link budget of more than 140dB, the best in its class. It can be programmed to generate up to 20dBm transmit power and achieves -121dBm sensitivity at the lowest data rate. Data rates from 0.123 to 256kbit/second are supported. Fast settling times and ramped PA power control provide excellent FHSS performance while ensuring compliance with FCC and EC regulations.
The module is surface mountable and supports automatic or manual placement. It is packaged in a small .43" x .99" package.
