This application note describes the design of a Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) compliant board
layout to give new Radio frequency (RF) designers a
head start using rfPIC transmitters such as the
rfHCS362 and the rfPIC12C509A. It guides users
through the how-to of a typical design process covering
definition, design, testing, reiterations, regulatory
approval and manufacturing. While focused on
meeting requirements in the United States, the RF
explanations are universal.
Designing your first Rf Transmitter is a new challenge
for most embedded Microcontroller gurus. While this
application note cannot replace experience, it should
make your first experiences less intimidating.
Completely understanding RF is complex, so the key is
to learn what level of detail is enough to accomplish
