|We can provide the EmbedRF wireless transceiver technology as a stand-alone PCB loaded with the EmbedRF OS. You can also buy the circuit design schematic for the board and also buy the firmware for the operating system so that you can customize it for your own application
The EmbedRF Standard has all of the built-in functionality to enable low power short-range bi-directional wireless data transmission and a convenient 3-wire serial interface to other PCBs. The EmbedRF Standard has both analog input ports which may be used to acquire and transmit analog sensor data making the EmbedRF technology an ideal candidate for data logging and manufacturing applications. The EmbedRF Standard also has digital output ports for controlling peripherals.
Additional features of EmbedRF Standard are listed below:
. Configurable periodic wireless transceiver (0.25 to 12.75 second intervals

EmbedRF firmware source code
Save yourself months of software
development by purchasing the EmbedRF OS firmware. An overview of the functions included in the firmware is here . The firmware is written in C and developed for Microchip PIC16F690 microcontroller.
All of the features described for the EmbedRF standard are implemented within the firmware as are the drivers for controlling the
Texas Instruments CC1101 transceiver are included within the firmware. Please note: if you want to flash the board, you
will need to purchase an MPLab ICD 2 .
If you want to make edits to the code, you will need a C-compiler and Hitech offers a free Hitech Lite version .
However, the code we provide has been compiled using the Pro version and it nearly fills the memory of the PIC. We cannot guarantee
that it will fit when compiled using the Lite version and you may need to remove some features.
(i.e. The compiled code size can be a lot larger when compiled on the Hitech Lite version as compared with the Pro version)
