Transmitter/Receiver Handles 115 kb/s Rates At 1 GHz

Aimed at short-range wireless applications, the MICRF005 and MICRF103 amplitude shift keyed (ASK) receiver and transmitter pair deliver data rates up to 115 kb/s over an operating frequency range from 800 MHz to 1 GHz. The MICRF005 receiver and MICRF103 transmitter are the latest additions to the QwikRadio line of RF products. Similar to other devices in the line, the MICRF005 requires just three external components, consisting of two capacitors and a reference oscillator, to create a complete RF receiver. Operating from a 5V power supply, the MICRF005 consumes 10 mA and the MICRF103, 16 mA. The MICRF005 in a SOIC-14 and MICRF103 in a SOIC-8 are priced at $2.33 and $1.61, respectively, each/1,000.
