Ultra-Low Power Integrated UHF Transceiver

Semtech Corporation

The SX1211 is a single-chip transceiver operating in the frequency ranges from 863-870, 902- 928 MHz and 950-960 MHz. The SX1211 is optimized for very low power consumption (3mA in receiver mode). It incorporates a baseband modem with data rates up to 200 kb/s. Data handling features include a sixty-four byte FIFO, packet handling, automatic CRC generation and data whitening. Its highly integrated architecture allows for minimum external component count while maintaining design flexibility.

Product Description

All major RF communication parameters are programmable and most of them may be dynamically set. It complies with European (ETSI EN 300-220 V2.1.1) and North American (FCC part 15.247 and 15.249) regulatory standards.
