Title:
Designing an FCC Approved ASK rfPIC™ Transmitter
Name:
AN242

Description:
This application note describes the design of a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) compliant board layout to give new radio frequency (RF) designers a head start using rfPIC transmitters such as the rfHCS362 and the rfPIC12C509A. It guides users through the how-to of a typical design process covering definition, design, testing, reiterations, regulatory approval and manufacturing. While focused on meeting requirements in the United States, the RF explanations are universal. Designing your first RF transmitter is a new challenge for most embedded microcontroller gurus. While this application note cannot replace experience, it should make your first experiences less intimidating. Completely understanding RF is complex, so the key is to learn what level of detail is enough to accomplish your task.
