Product Overview

The MRF89XAM8A-I/RM is a MRF89XAM8A ultra low power sub GHz surface mount transceiver module with integrated crystal, internal voltage regulator, matching circuitry and PCB antenna PICtail/PICtail Plus daughter board. The MRF89XAM8A module operates in the european 863MHz to 870MHz frequency band and is ETSI compliant. The integrated module design frees the integrator from the extensive RF and antenna design, and regulatory compliance testing, allowing quicker time to market. The daughter board can be plugged into multiple demonstration and development boards. For example, the daughter board is appropriate for 8bit microcontroller development using the PIC18 explorer board or for 16bit or 32bit microcontroller development using the explorer 16 development board.
  • Module designed from the MRF89XA integrated ultra low power, sub GHz transceiver IC
  • Supports proprietary sub GHz wireless protocols
  • Simple, SPI interface with interrupts
  • Small size 0.7" x 1.1" (17.8mm x 27.9mm), surface mountable
  • Integrated crystal, internal voltage regulator, matching circuitry and PCB antenna
  • Easy integration into final product minimize product development, quicker time to market
