MK Consultants, a leading designer and manufacturer low power radio modules, has introduced a new range of embedded intelligent radio transceivers that operate in the UHF bands of 434, 457, 868 and 915 MHz with a VHF 169 MHz version also available. The iGenesis series operates in narrow band 25 kHz channels producing adjustable RF power up to 15 mW coupled with a receiver sensitivity in excess of -120 dBm and best-in-class blocking immunity against interference.
Housed in a fully shielded SIL package with compact overall dimensions of just 44 mm x 15 mm x 5 mm, the iGenesis series is ideal for the growing number of portable electronics products that require reliable, long range and repeatable wireless interconnectivity. Applications include M2M, Bluetooth and Zigbee replacement for enhanced performance, automatic meter reading, home automation and wireless sensors.
The new modules have a wide operating voltage range of 2.8 VDC to 6 VDC and can achieve a wireless range in excess of one kilometre. A comprehensive software serial data interface including user selectable parameters such as operating frequency, power, data rates, plus transparent or packet protocol selection, eases implementation and allows designers to concentrate on the overall functionality of their products and potentially shorten time-to-market.
iGenesis embedded radio modules have an operating temperature range of -20 °C to +60 °C and meet worldwide radio approval standards. For high volume applications, MK Consultants also offers the modules in a surface mount format suitable for SMD assembly processes.
