Description: Replacement:WRL-10154. The new breakout board uses the RFM22B module, which is the newer revision. This page is for reference only.
Here is the breakout board for the RFM22 which gives you access to the pins. The RFM22 is a low-cost ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical) FSK (frequency-shift keying) transceiver module which offers communication at 434MHz and adjustable output power of up to +17 dBm. The wide operating voltage range of 1.8–3.6 V and low current consumption makes the RFM22 an ideal solution for battery powered applications.
Communication with the RFM22 is achieved via a standard 4-wire SPI interface. Three configurable general purpose I/Os are also available, the use of which can be tailored towards the needs of your project. A host of other features are also available including an 8-bit ADC, temperature sensor, RX and TX FIFOs, and low-battery detection. See the datasheet below for a complete description of every register and command.
In our testing, a 17cm wire attached to the ‘ANT’ pin worked just fine. A hole is drilled next to the ‘ANT’ pin for strain relief.
