Micrel Inc. announced the immediate availability of its QwikRadio modules from third-party vendors. Designed and manufactured by third parties, the modules are easy-to-operate, feature a small form factor and come in fixed data-rates at standard frequencies (1KBPS Manchester at 315MHz or 433 MHz). According to the company, they enable customers to quickly design new products by taking a more time-effective and cost conscious 'cut and paste' approach to their RF reference designs.

"Worldwide, we continue to see explosive demand for innovative drop-in, RF-enabled IC design solutions," said Scott Brown, director of Mixed-Signal and RF Products at Micrel. "The RF modules decrease time-to-market by minimizing RF and communications system variables such as RF matching, data rate and RF layout. By encouraging third parties to develop and manufacture QwikRadio modules, we can help customers significantly reduce their RF prototyping cycle time and associated costs."

Target applications for the QwikRadio low-power UHF receivers include those in the automotive, industrial and consumer markets. The modules are readily available in various dimensions down to 3-by-1cm.
