High-power Zigbee module transmits up to 1500 m

14 May 2008 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Radiocrafts has expanded its product line with a compact, high-power RF module designed for ZigBee operating at 2,45 GHz. The new module delivers up to 18 dBm output power, and provides line-of-sight communication ranges of 1500 metres with an external antenna or 800 metres with the integrated antenna.

The new RC2201HP is compliant with IEEE 802.15.4 and is designed for ZigBee full function device (FFD) and reduced function device (RFD) operation, or other protocol stacks using star or mesh topologies. The complete shielded module measures only 16,5 x 35,6 x 3,5 mm, and is optionally available with an integrated antenna. An integrated microcontroller makes it possible to embed the complete application in this tiny module. The output power can be adjusted to comply with EU regulations for CE marking, as well as FCC and ARIB approvals.

The module is based on DSSS (direct sequence spread spectrum) technology and offers exceptional range and performance even in crowded and noisy environments. It boasts 128 KB of Flash memory and 8 KB of RAM, and features UART and SPI interfaces, as well as 32 digital and analog I/Os and an 8-channel 10-bit ADC. Low power modes are implemented to conserve battery life in remote applications.

Typical applications include home, building and industrial automation, wireless security and alarm systems, automatic meter reading, remote control and telemetry, fleet and asset management. Operation at the 2,45 GHz licence free band makes the module suitable for worldwide usage. The package is suitable for pick and place automatic assembly and is available in tape and reel.
