Low Power radio, n../arrowband and short range devices, front end saw filters, active RFID, RFIC, coupled resonator filters, single silicon chips in the 70MHZ and 300-1000Mhz range.
The DR7003-DK kit allows for full demonstration or development of the third-generation (3G) TR7003 Virtual Wire
device. The kit provides “Out of the box” operation with or without the accompanying software. 2-way Range Test
capability is included by simply snapping on the included 9V battery, turn on power, and configuring the opposite
board for transmit. A small area is available for custom development with other popular microprocessors. The
DR7003 Data Radio boards are configured to operate at a data rate of 4.8 kbps. The kits are shipped with a pair of
data radio boards and matching antennas. Data Radio boards with antennas can be purchased separately for
development of applications.

• 2x 9V batteries
• VWO Configuration software
• 2x tuned, SMA antennas
• 2x DR development boards
• CD with documentation
The DR7003-EV hybrid transceiver module is ideal for short-range wireless data applications where robust
operation, small size, low power consumption and low cost are required. The DR7003-EV utilizes RFM’s
TR7003 amplifier-sequenced hybrid (ASH) architecture to achieve this unique blend of characteristics. All
critical RF functions are contained in the hybrid, simplifying and speeding design-in. The receiver section of
the DR7003-EV is sensitive and stable. A wide dynamic range log detector, in combination with digital AGC
and a compound data slicer, provide robust performance in the presence of on-channel interference or noise.
Two stages of SAW filtering provide excellent receiver out-of-band rejection. The transmitter includes
provisions for both on-off keyed (OOK) and amplitude-shift keyed (ASK) modulation. The transmitter employs
SAW filtering to suppress output harmonics, facilitating compliance with FCC and similar regulations.
