Radiocrafts Press Release - December 15, 2009
Radiocrafts Intros 500 mW High Power RF Module at 868 MHz
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.
(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.
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
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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
