Does anyone know is the ADCUCRF101 device can be made to work at a lower frequency? We would like to operate in the MICS (Medical Implant Communications Services) band, around 403 MHz. Any suggestions would be helpful.
The ADuCRF101 is a data acquisition solution that integrates different ADI capabilities such as precision ADC, low power modes and a low power transceiver in the same package.
The transceiver re-used on ADuCRF101 was originally designed to operate from 431MHz with a focus on reducing power consumption in the application while maintaining the performance of previous ADI transceiver.
There was no intent to stay out of the medical space with the ADuCRF101.
The ADuCRF101 operates in the following frequency bands only: 862MHz to 928MHz and 431MHz to 464MHz.
403MHz is not supported by the ADuCRF101.
Thanks for the info. I am curious about why not, though. It seems to me that finagling a crystal value or some PLL registers ought to be trivial. Was this a specific design decision to stay OUT of the medical space? Thanks
