Radiometrix : UHF FM receiver includes wide range RSSI



The Radiometrix RX3G is a PLL synthesiser based miniature PCB mounted UHF radio data receiver device. When used in conjunction with the manufacturer´s matching TX3B-869-64 transmitters it can facilitate the simple implementation of wireless infrastructure that is capable of supporting speeds of 64kbits/s and transmission ranges up to 75m in-building or 300m over open ground.

The device has a receive sensitivity of -102dBm at 1ppm BER for 64kbits/s operation and -108dBm sensitivity at 1ppm BER for 15kbits/s operation. It incorporates a wide range RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) which measures the strength of an incoming signal over a range of approximately 50dB. This allows assessment of the link quality and available margin with which the network can operate, so that a judgment on what distances can be supported is easy for the engineer to make. It requires a regulated 5V supply with ripple content of less than 100mV peak-to-peak.

Available for operation in the 868.3, 869.5 and 869.85MHz European frequency bands, the product complies fully with both the EN 301 489-3 EMC (thanks to internal filtering) and EN 300 220-3 radio standards. It is suitable for one-to-one and multi-node wireless link topologies, and can be employed in a wide variety of applications, including automobile/building security, environmental monitoring, inventory tracking, remote industrial process control, and computer networking. Thanks to its compact dimensions (47.0×16.8×2.5mm) and low power requirements (current consumption typically only 10mA) the RX3G is optimised for use in portable, battery-powered wireless design such as handheld terminals.
