Anaren announces AIR Integrated Radio modules

September 23, 2010 - Anaren announced AIR Integrated Radio modules designed for the broad electronics market. Working closely with Texas Instruments as a member of the TI Developer Network, Anaren developed the five-module AIR family to provide a more elegant, FCC Certified, 'plug and play' RF solution to electronic engineers challenged with adding wireless capability to new or existing devices. Available in two standard sizes (9 x 12 x 2.5mm and 9 x 16 x 2.5mm), each module's footprint is smaller than a postage stamp.AIR modules can help an E-OEM eliminate the major time and resource demands necessary to securing an FCC certification: AIR modules come pre-certified, which can save the customer money and help minimize time-to-market.Applications for AIR modules range from industrial control, building automation, and low-power sensor networks -- to lighting and equipment and appliances intended for inclusion in smart-grid scenarios (e.g. automated meter reading).The AIR module product family offers:

  • Easy integration and implementation on existing or newly-designed two-layer PCB
  • Virtually no RF engineering experience necessary
  • Tiny 9 x 12 x 2.5mm and 9 x 16 x 2.5mm footprints, across product family
  • FCC Part 15 and Industry Canada RSS-210 compliant, with no additional "Intentional Radiator" certification required
  • Choice of embedded or connectorized antenna
  • 100% RF-testing
  • Low power consumption
  • Choice of frequencies to match an OEM's application: -- A1101R04C: 433-434.4MHz FCC compliant; device operating range 400-450MHz -- A1101R09A and A1101R09C: 902-928 MHz -- A1101R08C: 868 MHz -- A2500R24A and A2500R24C: 2400-2483.5 MHz
  • Offering same-day conductivity -- test boards are available to easily evaluate each module's performance, using Texas Instruments EM Development Kits (CC1101DK and CC2500DK) and eZ-430 Development Kits.
  • Supplied on tape and reel for easy integration into automated assembly systems
