Interfacing MICRF220 to a microcontroller

Hi,
would like to know if MICRF220 can be directly interfaced to a micro controller or we need a decoder in between?

    I've never used one, but I imagine you could connect it straight to a PIC.
    You don't say what is at the other end of the link. Another PIC?
    If it's just ASYNC serial being sent, then it will be trivial.

    Yes its a PIC on the other end, I don't know to sync the receiver with the transmitter. i.e if it connects directly to the PIC uc, then how the uc will identify the start of data packet in an async transmission, what is the algorithm required and its overhead on the uc?

    All of this has nothing to do with the MICRF220.
    You have exactly the same issue with a direct serial connection.
    The only difference is you are likely to get some random noise if the other end is not transmitting at all.
