Product Overview

The AC164134 is a MRF24J40MA PICTail Plus 2.4GHz RF Card. The MRF24J40MA PICtail Plus 2.4GHz Radio Frequency Card is built with the NEW agency certified MRF24J40MA IEEE 802.15.4 RF transceiver module. The MRF24J40MA module operates in the non licensed 2.4GHz frequency band and is FCC, IC and ETSI compliant. The integrated module design frees the integrator from extensive RF and antenna design, and regulatory compliance testing, allowing quicker time to market. The MRF24J40MA module is compatible with ZigBee, MiWi and MiWi P2P software stacks. The module is attached to a PICTail Plus carrier board allowing the RF Board to be used with an explorer 16 development kit. the MRF24J40MA is a perfect solution for low cost, low power complete embedded wireless PAN applications.
