A7103A supports ASK data rate from 1K to 10Kbps and FSK from 1K to 20Kbps which is determined via external capacitors applied on data filter and data slicer. In FSK modulation, this device’s Fdev (frequency deviation) is controlled by Xtal detuning of series an external capacitor (typical 75pF for ± 12.5KHz ). However, this capacitor is not necessary in ASK modulation.
For easy-to-use, A7103A has only two control registers, register 0 and 1. MCU can configure two registers via 3-wire SPI bus. In addition to SPI control mode, A7103A has a special mode called HW control mode. In HW control mode, user just needs to apply pin settings. Then radio control is done (register 0 and register 1 are in default values). No matter HW or SPI control mode, A7103A is very easy to use by a low cost MCU or encoder/decoder. Those features are all integrated in a small SSOP 24 pins package.
For packet handling, there is no FIFO inside A7103A. Hence, in TX mode, MCU or Encoder just delivers the defined packet (preamble + sync word + payload) to TX_DATA pin. Then, in RX mode, MCU or Decoder can receive the packet (preamble + sync word + payload) from RX_DATA pin. Be aware that A7103A needs different preamble formats between ASK and FSK in order to get the best RX sensitivity.Features:
