GFSK90 ISM Radio / Programmable Controller 



Radio is compliant with the specifications regulated and required by FCC Part 15 and 18.


GFSK90 is a small scale, low cost wireless ISM transceiver module. The low receive sensitivity (-118 dBm) coupled with industry leading +20dBm output power ensures extended range and improved link performance. Built-in antenna diversity and support for frequency hopping can be used to further extend the range and enhance performance. 

Features
  • Programmable Frequency Range: 240-930 MHz
  • LPD 433/915MHz ISM bands
  • Sensitivity = –118 dBm
  • +20 dBm Max Output power range:
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Data Rate = 1 to 128 kbps
  • FSK, GFSK, and OOK modulation
  • Power Supply = 1.8 to 3.6 V

The worlds smallest (22nm Dual Core) functional PC meet Edison. I am very glad to learn it supports Linux and has a built in TCP/IP Stack, Wifi and Bluetooth hardware. I can clearly see a completely new generation of monitoring devices or even a Star Trek communicator in our future. Would be a great device for transactional identification and processing mainly used as a personal security device.
