LOW COST RF MODULESProviding the wireless industry with cost-effective,
easily applied, and highly versatile radio frequency (RF) products

Performance without Sacrifice

A leading provider of cost-effective, easily applied, highly versatile radio frequency products, Linx Technologies offers a full line of hybrid RF modules to provide solutions which meet the needs of the most demanding applications, while maintaining the ease of implementation, reliable performance and high degree of flexibility for which Linx has become well-known.

The LR, LT, and ES Series of hybrid modules are complete RF solutions, requiring no tuning or external RF components outside of an antenna. These leading-edge modules facilitate the easy and cost-effective addition of wireless capabilities to virtually any product, allowing application by engineers with little or no RF design experience.

Each of the three RF module series offers distinct functionality and advantages. Utilizing Linx RF products makes finding the right module for your application simple and straightforward, reducing overall costs and time to market.

LR Series - Long Range Wireless Communication Modules

LR Series

The LR Series is ideal for the wireless transfer of serial data, control, or command information in the favorable 260-470 MHz band. The receiver's advanced synthesized architecture achieves an outstanding typical sensitivity of -112 dBm, which provides a 5-10 times improvement in range over previous solutions. The transmitter's synthesized architecture minimizes the effects of antenna loading, providing a more stable, consistent performance. When paired, a reliable wireless link is formed, capable of transferring data at rates of up to 10,000bps over distances of up to 3000 feet. Applications operating at short distances or lower data rates will also benefit from increased link reliability and superior noise immunity. Housed in tiny reflow-compatible SMD packages, the LR Series modules are footprint compatible with the popular LC Series (the transmitter pin-out is slightly different), allowing existing users an instant path to improved range and lower cost. No external components are required except an antenna, allowing for easy integration, even by engineers without previous RF experience.

LT Series - Long Range Transceiver Modules

LT Series

The LT Series transceiver is ideal for the bidirectional wireless transfer of serial data, control, or command information in the favorable 260-470 MHz band. The transceiver is capable of generating +10 dBm into a 50-ohm load and achieves an outstanding typical sensitivity of -112 dBm. Its advanced synthesized architecture delivers outstanding stability and frequency accuracy, and minimizes the effects of antenna pulling. When paired, the transceivers form a reliable wireless link that is capable of transferring data at rates of up to 10,000 bps over distances of up to 3000 feet. Applications operating over shorter distances or at lower data rates will also benefit from increased link reliability and superior noise immunity. Housed in a tiny reflow-compatible SMD package, the transceiver requires no external RF components except an antenna, which greatly simplifies integration and lowers assembly costs.
