ADRadioNet claims it is Multi-band, Mult-PHY, Multi-channel. What are all these?

 

The devices in the ADRadioNet© can choose to operate in any of the multiple radio frequency bands (Multi-band), and its multiple channels (Multi-channel), with multi-PHY option (means devices can listen on one channel and talk on another channel) to make it a robust wireless sensor network

The existing ADRadioNet implementation uses 6 predefined ADF7024 radio profiles as in Table 1. These cover the license-free ISM bands at 433 MHz, 868 MHz, 915 MHz, and also the European ETSI EN 300-220 regulation, and the North American FCC Part 15 regulation.

For each radio profile, optimized register settings are provided for the ADF7024 radio. This ensures that the RF communication layer works seamlessly, allowing the user to concentrate on the protocol and system level design and prototyping. The radio profiles cover common data rate and modulation options.

The following multi-band, multi-channel, multi-PHY options are available as part of the ADRadioNet offering
