Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) Modules
GET YOUR WIRELESS PRODUCT OFF THE GROUND FAST!
Developed in concert with Texas Instruments as part of TI's Design Network, Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules are the industry's easiest, most elegant and most cost-effective way to implement low-power RF capability... Whether your goal is designing a "wireless" version of a currently "wired" product -- or developing a wireless product from the ground up. Each AIR module (think of it as a tiny, wireless data transmitter and receiver) incorporates a proven Texas Instruments low-power RF transceiver chip and is compatible with all TI-approved software stacks. As such, AIR modules offer you excellent performance, tiny footprints, ease-of-use, and pre-established compliance with applicable regulatory standards (including FCC, IC, and ETSI). And because AIR is a self-contained, SMT module -- you save the time and costs associated with developing your own radio solution.
