CubeSat UHF Digital Radio Transceiver SatCOM UHF

CubeSat UHF Digital Radio Transceiver SatCOM UHF

This UHF radio utilizes a half-duplex architecture with a high-performance low power consumption transceiver which is controlled by a dedicated ARM Cortex-M4 MCU. The radio uses an ultra-high frequency band (UHF) that is programmable in 395 to 440 MHz range.

The module supports GFSK2 modulation and 2400 to 9600 bit rates. Modulation is configured to be ¼ of symbol rate and consequently, it is MSK modulation.
