4 Smart Reasons to Choose the eRIC Integrated Wireless Controller

Works Worldwide:
LPRS, Europe’s leading manufacturer of short-range wireless devices, now offers Internet of Things (IoT) and other wireless control or communication system builders with a system-on-chip fully integrated wireless controller which meets international frequency requirements and transmission standards.

Provides Secure Communication for IoT Devices
Now available with operating frequencies for World Markets the LPRS eRIC (easyRadio Integrated Controller) module is just half the size and half the cost of the long established and field proven easyRadio range and can be set by users to operate in a number of low power modes offering current consumption as low as 32µA.

Provides On-Board User Application Memory:
The low-cost feature-rich LPRS eRIC  (easyRadio Integrated Controller) wireless module has been designed to provide system builders with a simple to integrate complete wireless communication solution combined with a wide range of user options. eRIC modules are supplied preconfigured to operate as standalone modules but can be modified by any developer to take full advantage of the internal processor’s features.

Low Power for IoT Devices:   
The low cost, high security easyRadio Integrated Controller (eRIC) offers designers seven power saving modes of operation to ensure maximum battery life of remote sensors. The LPRS eRIC transceiver power saving modes provide control of the duty cycle of the receiver so that the ‘ON’ time can be set to 12.5%, 6.25%, 3.1% , 1.56%, 0.78%, 0.39% & 0.2% with corresponding levels of power saving from its “always on” current of 16mA.

50% off AWGs!!

AIM-TTi recently made some small changes to their high-quality TGxx11 Arbitrary Signal Generators.  We have a few of the existing models in stock and have reduced the prices dramatically – by 50%!  TG2511 is a 25MHz Function/Pulse/Arbitrary Generator, USB/LXI Reg. $1,239.56 Sale! $575; and the TG5011 is a 50MHz Function/Pulse/Arbitrary Generator, USB/LXI Reg. $1,397.00 Sale! $675.00.  The TGxx11 series from AIM-TTi offers a remarkable price-performance ratio for any DDS function generator available. It offers high quality sine and square waves up to 25MHz, noise generation, complex wave-shapes, true pulse generator mode with variable rise and fall times, and 128K word arbitrary waveforms. Extensive internal and external modulation capabilities include AM, FM, PM, PWM & FSK using any wave-shape (including noise). Full remote control facilities are available using USB or LXI compliant LAN.  Arbitrary waveforms can be saved and loaded via a front mounted USB flash drive socket.
