GDB1000 in a few words

GDB1000 is a full System On Chip covering all Sub-GHz frequency bands (433 … 950 MHz) embedding FSK and OFDM modulation capabilities in a small 7x7mm QFN 56 pin package.
It features a full transceiver chain based on IEEE 802.15.4g PHY and IEEE 802.15.4e MAC. The device exhibits a +20dBm with its on-chip PA and a low power PA output for use with external PA for up to +30dBm output power requirement. It offers a sensitivity of -103 dBm while maintaining 400kbps using OFDM modulation and includes built in features such power on reset, multiple interfaces.

Also available on request, software upgrade over the air and software stack up to application layer.
