This Synapse Wireless 915 MHz RF wireless module runs at OTA (Over-The-Air) speeds up to 150Kbps and features tightly packed SMD construction with a chip antenna. These modules are perfect when you need a separate frequency band when already using 2.4GHz nodes in an application.
Synapse Wireless provides reliable RF Engines®that support a range of frequencies and bandwidths. These small, low-power, transceiver modules, commonly run in the 915MHz & 2.4GHz spectrums, have a maximum extended range of up to three miles LOS (Line-Of-Sight) and the lowest power consumption in the industry. These RF Engines come pre-loaded with the SNAP® network operating system which allows the nodes to be natively mesh networked. Typical applications include wireless serial port(s), sensor monitoring, actuator control, or an intelligent embedded controller - the possibilities are limitless. Synapse takes 802.15.4 Zigbee/XBee style communication one step further, and makes it smart.
This particular RF module includes a user programmable (via python-based scripts) embedded Silicon Labs Si1000 microcontroller that can be programmed for all kinds of applications including remote sensor monitoring, radio control, and/or peripheral activation. Other notable features include: wide Low voltage TTL operating range (1.8 - 3.6V), 12 Analog-to-Digital Inputs, 4 Interrupt capable pins, I2C (TWI), SPI, 1 UART, & amazingly low power capabilities (8uA sleep current).
