Microchip has expanded its RF Products Division wireless portfolio with the new MRF49XA Sub-GHz transceiver radio. The MRF49XA covers the 434/868/915MHz unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical Radio Frequency band, which is ideal for low data-rate, low-power embedded wireless applications. By retaining compatibility with its existing suite of development tools, Microchip makes it easy to integrate this new Sub-GHz transceiver with any 8-, 16- or 32-bit PIC microcontroller, enabling cost-effective designs for a wide range of, bi-directional, short-range wireless applications, such as remote controls, remote meter reading and home security/alarms.
The new MRF49XA transceiver is a great addition to Microchip’s current rfPIC family of sub-GHz solutions and expands its overall wireless portfolio beyond the 2.4GHz IEEE802.15.4/ZigBee products. The MRF49XA transceiver radio is available on a PICtail/PICtail Plus daughter board for easy integration with the 8-bit PIC18 Explorer and 16/32-bit Explorer 16 modular microcontroller development boards.
