September 8, 2014 — Linx Technologies announces the release of the HumDT™ Series Transceiver. Designed with cost in mind from the start to appeal to OEMs who have a limited budget to incorporate RF for simple wireless data transfer. At below $9 in volume, the Hummingbird platform is the lowest cost complete wideband transceiver with microcontroller module on the market today.
Like its namesake, the low cost Hummingbird modules are tiny. At 11.5mm by 14.0mm, the HumDT™ uses advanced system on chip (SoC) technology to minimize the footprint and the number of components. It is designed for large-scale volume production, leading to a price that is nearly half that of similar modules, and making it cost competitive with discrete designs.
The HumDT™ transceiver has built-in networking with encryption. Each module
