Audio in the ISM band
When the ISM frequency band was made available in Europe for audio applications, Circuit Design, a manufacturer of professional RF modules, decided to develop suitable high-qualitytransmitters and receivers with a wide dynamic range: these are ideal for use in wireless microphones.
The WA-TX-01 (transmitter) and WARX- 01 (receiver) modules represent a novel concept in the wireless transmission of audio signals. Thanks to low power consumption, the technology lends itself to a wide range of audio applications. The transmitter and the receiver include components such as SAW filters, SAW resonators and noise reduction ICs.
CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.
Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
