Monolithic RF Transceiver IC for the Sub-1GHz smart RF markets, providing lowest power consumption, high sensitivity and high output power. Industrial and consumer applications include RF remote control such as garage door openers, smart metering, home automation and building security systems.
The device's superior RF functionalities (e.g., blocking capabilities, power management, and more) enable an extremely low current consumption. This permits to use smaller batteries to realize miniature designs, which is a key criteria for battery operated applications.
The RF Transceiver IC provide high sensitivity at -123dBm (0.75kbit/s, FSK, Manchester code, at 433.92MHz) and -109dBm (at 20kbit/s, ASK, Manchester code, at 433.92MHz), respectively. The high output power of -12dBm to +14.5dBm is programmable in 0.4-dB steps. Both high sensitivity and high output power allow for extended RF transmission distances.
The ATA8515 combines RF functionality with a proven Microchip AVR® microcontroller core. Configuration via the EEPROM enables quick and seamless adaptation to the individual application needs. Programming is done via the SPI - even on-the-fly during operation.
The firmware is included in ROM.
