Narrowband RF with superior link budget


The XE1205 has the highest link budget in the XEMICS TrueRF™ class of narrowband transceivers – 13 dB better than a similar product. It also offers a superior range with no external LNA or PA.

The XE1205 RF transceiver meets the requirements for 25 kHz channel spacing and adjacent channel power of less than –37 dBm. It is ideal for applications operating in the 433-868-915 MHz band, such as automatic metering, services and controls, security and remote keyless energy.

It is the third new XEMICS product based on TrueRF technology. Amongst the improvements offered by TrueRF are full FCC.ETSI compliancy without a SAW filter, additional register settings offering enhanced operation modes, and unconditional stability even at 15 dBm power output. New features include a 16-byte FIFO data buffer and an enhanced AFC algorithm; both contribute to reduced host-controller overhead and thereby lower system cost.

The XE1205 is being launched at Wireless Connectivity World, June 8-10 at the RAI in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. XEMICS stand is 313, where sales and marketing staff will be happy to answer any questions about the product.

The XE1205 is packaged in an 8×8 VQFN package and is available from below $3 in large quantities.
