Multi-channel RF transceiver IC operate from 300 to 960MHz
The IC could find use in home/building automation, tire pressure monitoring (TPMS), automatic meter reading (AMR), alarm systems, passive keyless entry (PKE), medical diagnostics and telemetry. Its output power level ranges from -20dBm to 13dBm while its receiver sensitivity can attain -120dBm in a 15kHz bandwidth.
With a maximum data rate of 250kbps, the transceiver is also capable of handling heightened data throughputs.
A wide variety of different RF parameters can be adjusted (number of channels, frequency resolution, output, frequency deviation, etc.), in order to satisfy specific application criteria. On-off keying (OOK), binary frequency shift keying (FSK), minimum shift keying (MSK), Gaussian minimum shift keying (GMSK) and Gaussian frequency shift keying (GFSK) modulation schemes are supported.
Two RF power detectors provide augmentation of radiated power performance during transmission. An energy harvesting interface allows battery-less power supply by using a solar cell in combination with a super capacitor. This accentuates its value in remote locations where power lines are impractical. Evaluation boards and software tools are also available. The MLX73290-M comes in a 5x5mm 32-lead QFN package
