Want to try Synapse, but only have XBee hardware? HAH - Synapse thought of that with their new RF266PC1. Synapse power in an XBee footprint!


Description [Hide]

We're sold on Synapse units. They're generally cheaper, better, and easier to use than XBee, but they have that larger footprint that makes it harder to use with proven legacy XBee hardware. If you want to try your hand with Synapse in your XBee application, this is the unit to get!
 
This Synapse RF module-in-an-XBee-Pro-form-factor features OTA (Over-The-Air) speeds up to 2Mbps, maximum 1.2km (4000) range and a chip antenna for compact installation.

This particular RF module includes a user programmable (via python-based scripts), embedded ATmega128RFA1 microcontroller that can be programmed for all kinds of applications including remote sensor monitoring, remote control, or peripheral activation. 

Other notable features include:

  • XBee Pro pin and footprint compatibility
  • Very high communication speeds (250kbps to 2Mbps)
  • Up to 1.2km (4000') foot range (line-of-sight)
  • Built-in Python interpreter (Who needs additional microcontroller? This one has one built-in!)
  • Wide low voltage TTL operating range (2.7 - 3.6V)
  • Ultra low power consumption mode (1.18µA. Not mA, but µA!)
  • 15 GPIO, featuring
    • 4 10-bit A/D inputs
    • 4 PWM Outputs
    • 7 Interrupt capable pins
  • 128k flash, with 58k free for over-the-air loaded user programs
  • Communication options include I2C (TWI) master mode, SPI (3 & 4 wire, master mode), 1 UART
  • Low power capabilities (2.3uA sleep current)

Other features:

  • Embedded ATmega128RFA1 on-board
  • 1 UART port (pin 2, 3) for LVTTL (3.3V) serial control or transparent data
  • Able to be configured to wirelessly program Arduino Uno & Mega 2560
  • Socket-able (2mm spacing) or solder-able
  • SNAP, instant-on, self-healing, mesh network operating system
  • 802.15.4 Protocol at 2.4GHz
  • I2C communication (Pins 9, 13)
  • SPI communication (Pins 18, 19, 20)
  • 128k flash memory (56k available for user applications)
  • Can be used stand-alone (no additional microcontroller required)
  • Low power mode of 2.3uA with internal timer running
  • Supply voltage: 2.7V~3.6V
  • Transmit current: 130mA (Typ)
  • Receive current: 25mA
  • Sleep current: 2.3uA
  • Operating temperature:-40°C ~ 85°C
  • Power output: 20dBm for best-in-class range
  • FCC certified on all 16 channels (2.4GHz)
  • Spread spectrum (DSSS) technology resists noisy environments
