Linx Technologies' DTS Series and EUR Series RF Transceiver Modules
Combine Low Power
with Multi-Point to Multi-Point Control
June 24, 2013 — The
DTS Series and EUR Series RF transceiver modules combine a low power wireless transceiver
with a powerful multipoint-to-multipoint protocol controller to form an effective UART-to-antenna
wireless communication solution. The modules use a wide band digital modulation technique known
as Digital Transmission System (DTS) and are capable of replacing wires in almost any RS-232/422/485
application. This type of system is allowed to have a higher output power, giving it a range
of up to 1 mile / 1.6 km line of sight without having to limit duty cycle, hop channels
or the expense of a direct sequence (DSSS) system.
DTS and EUR Series transceivers are designed specifically for low power applications where battery
power may be important. Low power modes as well as adjustable transmitter output power allow
the designer to optimize the current consumption for the available power supply in the application.
The transceivers have a robust built-in protocol. A Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) algorithm
makes sure the channel is clear before sending data. Group ID and addressing enable basic networking.
A 16-bit CRC ensures correct data. This complete radio, protocol and UART interface results
in a complete UART-to-antenna solution supporting easy integration.
The North American
module offers 32 DTS channels in the 902 to 928 MHz band. The Brazilian module removes
the channels in the 907 to 915 MHz restricted band, leaving 19 DTS channels. The EUR Series
offers 2 DTS channels in the 868 to 870 MHz band.
An EVM evaluation module
of each version is also available, having the module on a board with an antenna connector and
voltage regulator. The North American version is FCC certified while the Brazilian version is
Anatel certified. Specific antennas must be used to maintain the certification.
