Low-Power 2.4GHz ISM Transceiver for Consumer Applications
The Atmel AT86RF232 2.4GHz ISM transceiver is fully IEEE 802.15.4-compliant and feature-optimized for consumer applications in the unlicensed 2.4GHz ISM band available worldwide. It is ideal for low-complexity, peer-to-peer wireless applications like remote controls, health and fitness devices, toys, game controllers, and others.
The new device is fully-compliant with IEEE 802.15.4, making it the ideal transceiver for ZigBee RF4CE. The ZigBee RF4CE specification is designed to control a wide range of wireless consumer products including remote controls for home entertainment devices, human interface devices like mice and keyboards, and 3D glasses.
The Atmel AT86RF232 transceiver includes all the necessary features to support the latest wireless applications in the consumer market, including excellent RF performance, low power consumption, high-link budget and onboard AES encryption for secure communication. The device also supports automatic antenna diversity to improve RF performance and link reliability.

Atmel has developed an RF transceiver to support the high-volume consumer markets in the 2.4GHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) band.
The AT86RF232 transceiver supports the ZigBee RF4CE specification aimed at consumer remotes, keyboards and 3D glasses.
“With the growing high-volume consumer segment, manufacturers are looking for transceivers with low power, high RF performance and enhanced security,” said Magnus Pedersen, product marketing director for microcontroller wireless solutions at Atmel
“The transceiver addresses these issues with antenna diversity, larger link budget and robust RF performance for this cost-sensitive market.” said Pedersen.
The transceiver supports automatic antenna diversity to improve RF performance and there is on-chip AES encryption for secure wireless end-to-end communication.
The transceiver has a voltage range of 1.8V to 3.6V, -100dBm in sensitivity and an output power of 3dBm for extended battery life in various applications.
