Nanotron Technologies Presents First nanoNET Hardware

Berlin (PRWEB) September 27, 2004

“Two years after the world premiere of our Chirp technology, we now offer a whole set of products”, says Nanotron’s CEO Dr. Jens N. Albers. “In addition to the transceiver IC nanoNET TRX, our customers can also purchase complete RF modules, Evaluation Kits and related software. This guarantees an easy entry into Chirp technology.”


The nanoNET TRX is a transceiver IC for the worldwide license-free ISM band at 2.4 GHz. The CSS modulation technique (Chirp Spread Spectrum), developed by Nanotron Technologies, is based on Chirp pulses and is used for robust data transmissions. With a maximum physical data rate of 2 Mbps, the IC provides a range of 900 meters outdoors or 60 meters indoors (typical) at 10 mW output power and at a data rate of 1 Mbps. Because the nanoNET TRX has a sleep mode with extremely low power consumption and a high data rate (which transforms to a small duty cycle), products with ultra low current can be realized. Sample chips of the nanoNET TRX are already available with mass production starting no later than the second quarter of 2005.
