ON Semiconductor's sub-1 GHz family of devices provides easy entry to high-performance wireless connectivity. ON Semiconductor RF products are designed to provide maximum performance and ultra-low power consumption for every major wireless sub-1 GHz standard, as well as proprietary wireless solutions. These solutions combine RF and baseband components, ultra-low-power microcontroller technology, and support for high-performance firmware stacks to provide single chip solutions.
ON Semiconductor provides a wide range of sub-1 GHz RF transceivers, receivers, and transmitters covering multiple standards including Sigfox, KNX, Wireless M-Bus, and EnOcean. ON Semiconductor transceivers are known for high efficiency and excellent sensitivity in the range of -110 dBm to -126 dBm for 1.2 kbps (narrow-band or general-purpose). AX5043 is the leading sub-1 GHz transceiver for data ranges from 0.1 kbps to 125 kbps. The device offers the unique combination of ultra-low power consumption for transmit and receive operation with high sensitivity and selectivity.
The AX8052F1xx family combines the superb performance of ON Semiconductor’s wireless transceiver technology with an ultra-low-power microcontroller featuring 64 kB Flash, 9.25 kB RAM, and sleep current consumption of 500 nA to 1500 nA. The AX8052F100 core is specifically designed to enable one-chip radio solutions for all levels of complexity. Its low power consumption combined with the rich feature set make it the ultimate choice for many RF systems. The AX8052F143 offers the same leading edge performance as the AX5043 combined with the flexibility and features of a leading edge 8-bit microcontroller on a single SoC without any sacrifice of performance. The AX-SFEU and AX-EOEU offer preprogrammed solutions for Sigfox and EnOcean standards on the AX8052F143 SoC.
ON Semiconductor’s comprehensive suite of development kits simplifies the entry into wireless solutions. Development kits are supported by a suite of software tools consisting of code generators for full RF application C-code and an integrated development environment which comes with a source code debugger and C-compiler.
The DVK-BASE-2-GEVK features the AX8052F100 ultra-low-power microcontroller on the main boards, allowing developers using ON Semiconductor’s radio chips and microcontrollers to design, program, and evaluate their applications under real world conditions. A range of RF-modules with different RF ICs for various carrier frequencies are available as add-on kits.
The DVK-SFEU-1-GEVK Sigfox development kit enables instant testing via AT commands for ON Semiconductor’s single chip solution for a node on the Sigfox network.
The F143-Mini-2-GEVK is ON Semiconductor’s miniaturized development kit for the designer starting out with the AX8052F143 SoC RF-Microcontroller. The F143-Mini-DVK hardware consists of a USB debugging adapter and a pair of RF modules (F143-Mini-A-MOD and F143-Mini-B-MOD modules) and includes all software necessary to develop systems in shortest times. The modules have a tiny footprint of just 33 x 15 mm2. One module comes with a chip antenna the other is equipped with an SMA connector.
