Micrel Inc. introduced the MICRF610 and MICRF620, the latest parts in Micrel's family of low-power QwikRadio radio modules. Designed to operate in the unlicensed 433MHz and 868MHz band, the MICRF610 and MICRF620 are aimed at the building control, industrial automation and advance remote control markets.

The MICRF610 and MICRF620 are self-contained frequency shift keying (FSK) transceiver modules, intended for use in half-duplex, bidirectional RF links. Both devices feature a footprint of 11.5-by-14mm. The solutions are suited for customers with small production runs or who may lack the expensive capital equipment such as spectrum and network analyzers necessary to design RF circuits. Both modules are code-compatible with Micrel's MICRF505 and MICRF506 RadioWire transceivers. The MICRF600 is also available for operation in the unlicensed 915MHz band.

Designed to streamline the design process, the modules adhere to the European Telecommunication Standard Institute (ETSI) specification, EN300 220. The MICRF610 and MICRF620 are sampling now with volume quantities available in the fourth quarter of 2005. Pricing starts at $11.33 in 10,000-unit quantity.
