Analog Devices Inc. ADF7024 Low Power, Sub GHz Transceiver IC

Analog Devices Inc. ADF7024 Low Power, Sub GHz Transceiver IC is designed as an ultralow power, integrated transceiver for use in the license-free ISM bands at 433MHz, 868MHz, and 915MHz. ADF7024's ease-of-use and high performance make it suitable for a wide variety of wireless applications. The device is suitable for operation under the European ETSI EN300-220 regulation, the North American FCC Part 15 regulation, and other similar regulatory standards. 

ADF7024 can operate under a number of pre-defined radio profiles. For each radio profile, optimized register settings are provided for the ADF7024 radio. This ensures that the RF communication layer works seamlessly, allowing the user to concentrate on the protocol and system level design and prototyping. The radio profiles cover common data rate and modulation options.
