Device Overview

Summary

MRF89XAM9A is a 915MHz radio transceiver module. The MRF89XAM9A has an integrated PCB antenna, matching circuitry, and supports Microchip's proprietary protocol MiWi™ Development Environment.  The MRF89XAM9A module connects to hundreds of PIC® microcontrollers via a 4-wire SPI interface and is an ideal solution for low power wireless sensor networks, home automation, building automation and consumer applications.

Additional Features
  • 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" (17.8 mm x 27.9 mm), surface mountable
  • Integrated crystal, internal voltage regulator, matching circuitry and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) antenna
  • Easy integration into final product: minimize product development, quicker time to market
  • Compatible with Microchip’s Microcontroller families (PIC16, PIC18, PIC24, dsPIC33 and PIC32)
  • End equipment using this module must be Regulatory certified for RF Emissions compliance
