More of today’s wireless applications require battery power, so the lower the output power the better. However, low output power compromises the communication range available in most RF solutions. The key to a great RF solution is to find a product that provides long range at low output power.
Digi RF modules are optimized for low power applications and provide excellent communication at short and long range. These modules operate at a variety of power output levels between 1 Watt and 1 milliWatt, allowing custom-designed networks that meet each application’s needs. The XBee product family provides power-down modes that reach below 10 µA.
