Y-Lynx YLX-TRM8053-500 Long Range 868-870MHz OEM Radio Modem

The release of the YLX-TRM8053-500 radio module may be more important than any Y-Lynx products release in the past. This ISM Radio modem is a powerful combination of a full-feature ISM band transceiver with a low power wireless communication library IC (LibIC). With an optimized RF sensitivity, together with an external amplifier allowing 500mW output power, communication of up to several kilometers can be achieved, even at high data rates.

Y-Lynx’s new YLX-TRM8053-500 Radio modem is a powerful combination of a full-feature ISM band transceiver together with a low power wireless communication library IC (LibIC). The combination of up to several kilometers can be achieved even at high data rates, with an optimized RF sensitivity and with external amplifier allowing 500mW output power and with minimal power consumption.

The radio modem is intended for low power sensor network with an emphasis on long range (>10km) applications. For example it would be suitable for wireless tracking goods, automated meter reading (AMR), as well as home automation.

Compared with other radio modems, the Y-Lynx radio modem includes a more powerful and complete radio communication controller. It operates the radio packet protocol, the communication interfaces, generic inputs outputs signals and manages the RF front-end. The radio modem can be configured through three mains classes of commands that are compatible with the OSI stack.

The YLX-TRM8053-500 offers a link budget with a higher value than that of its competitors. It assures highly reliable point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication, even under the most demanding conditions and over an exceptional range (in excess several kilometers). The YLX-TRM8053-500 transmitter is capable of delivering 500mW (+27dBm) output power at 3.3V and receiving sensitivity down to -118dBm @4.8kbps. The high performance radio modem is available at 868MHz at data rates from 4.8kbps to 152.3kbps.
