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 the use of smaller batteries to realize miniature designs, which is a key criteria for battery operated applications.
The RF Transceiver IC provides 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 ATA8510 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, and the device provides additional Flash option for application-specific software needs.
The ATA8510-EK1 is for evaluation of the ATA8510 / ATA8515 RF transceiver devices and demonstrates a 2-way communication at 433.92MHz. The kit includes a sensor board with ATA8510 (RF transceiver running a Flash application), Xplained PRO ATA8510/15 extension board, Xplained PRO SAMD20 evaluation board and Xplained PRO OLED1 extension board.
