NT Series RF Transceiver Module

Linx Technologies' NT Series RF transceiver module is a transceiver for continuous or periodic digital data transmission

Image of Linx Technologies' NT Series RF Transceiver ModuleSend and receive digital data continuously or periodically with Linx Technologies' paired NT Series RF transceiver modules. These modules make it simple to set up reliable one- or two-way wireless communication in the 902 to 928 MHz band. The NT Series uses a True Transparency™ interface that lets the user create a wireless connection for use with nonstandard data rates, custom protocols, or encodings such as PWM and Manchester. The module features best-in-class receive sensitivity (up to -113 dBm) and low power consumption (only 19.2 mA in receive mode and 15.2 mA in transmit mode at 0 dBm).

Unlike so-called transparent modules that require a UART interface and buffering scheme, the NT Series transceiver reduces latency by transmitting raw data. To transfer data, the user need only connect circuitry to the input line of the sending transceiver and the output line of the receiving transceiver. The module is completely hardware-configurable. Although programming is not required, the NT Series allows for communication and microcontroller programming over a UART connection, which lets the user implement a frequency agility scheme such as frequency hopping or listen before talk.
