Epiq Solutions is proud to answer all of the questions their clients might have regarding RF Transceivers. Here are some of the most common questions that their staff receives:
How do you go about selecting an RF Transceiver?
The best way to sum up selecting an RF Transceiver is that you need to understand radio techniques and modulation methods. And yes, this means that there is some vocabulary that you will need to understand. For example, you will need to know that “Amplitude modulation (AM)” is the function that causes the baseband signal to vary either the height or the amplitude of the carrier wave to create the desired information content. “Frequency modulation (FM)” is an activity that will cause the instantaneous frequency of the sine wave carrier to depart from the center frequency, but it will only do it by an amount proportional to that instantaneous value of the modulating signal. The “On-off key (OOK)” is obviously the simplest form of modulation because it is merely turning the signal on or off.
The “Amplitude shift key (ASK) will transmit data by varying the amplitude of the transmission, the “Frequency Shift key (FSK)” is a scheme that will use two or more of these outputs, and the “Phase shift key (PSK)” is a digital modulation scheme where the transmitted signal is varied, largely dependent on the data from the baseband signal.
Does this seem like complicated information to you? That’s because it is. However, you can rely on the experts at Epiq Solutions and visit https://epiqsolutions.com to answer all of your questions.
