Radiocrafts Press Release - December 15, 2009

Radiocrafts Intros 500 mW High Power RF Module at 868 MHz Click to visit RadiocraftsOslo, Norway, 2009-12-15 -- Radiocrafts AS, a leading provider of compact RF modules, now expand their RC232 product line family with a completely new high power module, the RC1180HP-RC232. The module is pin compatible with the existing RC11xx-series, and enables extended range using the same low-cost design philosophy applicable for the whole RC11xx product family.

Radiocrafts RC1180HP-RC232 (868 MHz) moduleThe RC1180HP-RC232 (868 MHz) module is certified for operation up to 500 mW under the European radio regulations for license-free use. When used with quarter-wave antennas a line-of-sight range of over 3 km can be achieved.

The compact RC1180HP-RC232 module, measuring only 12.7 x 25.4 x 3.3 mm, sets a new standard of integrating high power technology into a complete RF modem in one single tiny package, replacing tens of components compared to a discrete design. No external components are required, except an antenna.

This miniaturisation of a high power module without compromising the design goals of providing a low cost high performance module, is unique in the industry. The backward compatible properties, both hardware pin-out and the embedded protocol, with the already existing RC11xx-RC232 series, makes the RC1180HP-RC232 an ideal building block for both new and existing customers when range extension is required.

The module is a complete RF system solution running on the existing industry proven RC232™ protocol, with an easy-to-use UART interface for both configuration and communication. The embedded RC232™ protocol provides a point-to-multipoint solution with individual addressing or broadcast, and CRC check for signal integrity. The module can also be used as a wireless RS232 / RS485 cable replacement.

The module and Demo Kits are available now. The module is delivered on tape and reel for volume production.
