Linx Technologies Announces HumDT™ Series Multi-Channel
Digital Data Transceiver Module in 868 MHz

Linx Technologies logo

Merlin, Oregon – June 29, 2015 — At below $10 in volume, the Hummingbird platform is the lowest cost complete wideband transceiver with microcontroller module on the market today. The HumDT™ Series transceiver is built on this platform and is designed for data transfer. Linx is pleased to announce the addition of the HumDT™ multi-channel low cost RF modules in 868 MHz. Having a common footprint with the 900 MHz frequency agile model, designers can now serve the North American and European markets with common footprint modules, saving design time and material costs.

Linx Technologies Announces HumDT™ Series Multi-Channel Digital Data Transceiver Module in 868 MHz - RF Cafe

Low Cost RF Modules in a Small Package

Like its namesake, the low cost Hummingbird modules are tiny. At 11.5 mm by 14.0 mm, the HumDT™ uses advanced system on chip (SoC) technology to minimize the footprint and the number of components. It is designed for large-scale volume production, leading to a price that is nearly half that of similar modules, and making it cost competitive with discrete designs.

The module's UART interface is used for module configuration and data transfer. 8 GPIOs can be used for analog and digital functions and are controlled through the UART. Housed in a compact reflow-compatible SMD package, the transceiver requires no external RF components except an antenna, which greatly simplifies integration and lowers assembly costs.

By building on the Hummingbird platform and focusing on a low cost, multi-channel protocol, the HumDT™ makes high performance affordable. The HumDT™ wireless data module is the most cost effective way today to connect, monitor and control wireless systems. Perfect for The Internet of Things. – Kris Lafko, VP of Marketing & Sales at Linx Technologies

Multi-Channel Brings Long Range

The HumDT™ Series low cost RF modules are designed for the reliable wireless transfer of serial digital data. It consists of a highly optimized RF transceiver and integrated data and networking protocol. The 868 MHz version offers 68 channels within the 863 to 870 MHz band so that the user can select the best channel for the application. A serial command selects the channel as well as other configuration settings.

The module can achieve a line-of-sight range of up to 1,600 m (1.0 mile). The final range may be less depending on the regulatory requirements for the channel of operation as well as antenna implementation.

Networking and Fast Turn On Time

The HumDT™ Series supports star and extended star networks with up to 50 nodes. The fast turn-on time means the module can power-up, send data and go back to sleep very quickly, which is ideal for battery-powered applications. This makes the HumDT™ Series ideal for wireless sensor networks and similar applications where battery life is important.Each module can be configured as one of three device types; Access Point (AP), Range Extender (RE), and End Device (ED). These device types play a specific role in creating a star network.

Simple to Use Master Development Kits

To aid rapid development, the HumDT™ Series low cost RF modules are available as part of a newly conceived type of Master Development System. This comprehensive development kit is designed to assist in the rapid evaluation and integration of the HumDT™ Series data transceiver modules. The all-inclusive system features several pre-assembled evaluation boards, which include everything needed to quickly test the operation of the transceiver modules.

Kirt Blattenberger,

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 ...
