This Arduino shield uses the innovative easyRadio system to allow the Arduino boards to communicate wirelessly over the 900MHz ISM band.
easyRadio has been introduced to provide an innovative and effective solution for short range devices. easyRadio was the original 'smart' radio and is suitable for a wide range of applications across development, education and hobbyist, where there is a demand for robust and reliable communication.
Using this shield the host Arduino board can wirelessly send and receive (half duplex) up to 180 Bytes of data per packet, seamlessly delivered and accessible by all other hosts within range, without the need for bit balancing or elaborate coding schemes.
This device provides considerably greater range, using less power than similar Wi-Fi or Bluetooth devices operating in the overcrowded 2.4GHz bands. It is also possible to optionally configure parameters such as frequency, bandwidth, power output and data rate so that multiple devices may be used at the same time with no interference between them or other RF devices.
Built-in temperature sensor usable by Arduino board
Ideal for 'sense and control' applications
LED indication of operation
Bi-directional link, no RF protocol software required
