RC232 protocol
Radiocrafts’ protocol RC232 is designed to enable a simple and effective cable replacement when using ISM band radio modules for
transmission of data. The RC232 protocol is embedded in the module and enables star (point-to-multipoint) and point-to-point
networks. The RC232 based ISM band modules can be controlled with a simple-to-use UART interface, herewith configuring the
protocol for the actual application.

RC232 - Radio Modules
Radiocrafts RF + Sierra Wireless AirLink GSM
Radiocrafts module portfolio is available for the Sierra Wireless AirLink GPRS/GSM/EDGE modem.
Sierra Wireless is the leading provider of M2M modems. The combination of Radiocrafts’ RF modules
and Sierra Wireless GPRS modems makes an easy to use out-of-the-box gateway solution with full
TCP/IP capability and processing power for extensive embedded applications. The Xtend directly
connects to Radiocrafts I/O on the internal IESM card. The Open AT IDE is easy to use and the
development tools are free of charge with extensive application support inside the Open-AT Software
Suite. This will give a cost competitive, high performance combination. The slot-in-card works with all
types of Radiocrafts modules. From Radiocrafts it is available a free Radio Test Gateway (RTG)
software for local connection to the RS232 port of the modem or for enabling transparent GPRS
connection via AT-commands.

High Speed Flashing and Testing
Radiocrafts has implemented a unique solution for high speed
volume production. This is an innovative test system for high
volume flashing, RF testing and taping of radio modules. This
machine combines all our experience and expertise in radio
modules and have the capacity of testing large volumes.
RF measurements – important CE & FCC qualification
We have experienced customers and competition which are
making radio solutions with unknown compliance status
versus CE & FCC regulations. This is often based on a lack of
knowledge about the different CE & FCC radio regulations and
not enough control of process variation. We know by
experience it is difficult to confirm to regulations with certain
chips and SoC’s. This is one of the reasons why we ALWAYS
test our radio modules 100% before shipping to customers.
Radiocrafts is testing the following parameters
on RC232 radio modules before shipping:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Frequency accuracy (ppm)
Output power (dBm)
2nd harmonic (dBm)
3rd harmonic (dBm)
Spurious emission (freq/max level, dBm)
RX sensitivity
TX supply current (mA)
RX supply current (mA)
Idle supply current (mA)
Sleep supply current (uA)
Program memory verification
UART communication
Testing of all these parameters will make further detailed
testing unnecessary, and only functional testing needs to be
done to ensure that the total application is working properly.
Radiocrafts ATS – Automatic Test Station – module boards
Benefits of 100% test coverage:
•
•
•
•
Little or no variations on delivered product
Avoid yield problems, and costs
Ensure regulations compliancy for every radio module
No extensive testing needed at later stage
One form factor – pin compatible – Different radio technologies
Radiocrafts can offer full flexibility for manufacturers who is looking for different radio solutions.
It is now possible to make one PCB design and combine several radio technologies, by only
changing the radio module and the antenna. Only minor adjustments in the host controller
firmware are necessary to swap between different firmware. The footprint compatible KNX-RF,
Wireless M-Bus and the high power IEEE 802.15.4 ZigBee, Smart Energy and RF4CE radio
module gives a unique flexibility for many different applications.
