Wireless Solutions
The ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) bands are open frequency bands, varying by region, that allow for operation without a license. These are also know as the unlicensed bands. In North America, these bands are the 260 ~ 470MHz, 902 ~ 928MHz, and 2.4GHz, among others. The 2.4GHz band is also utilized for worldwide operation. As a basis for unlicensed operation, these bands are often hosts for standardized and proprietary protocols such as WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Z-Wave, etc.

Linx ISM Transceiver IC for 315MHzLT Series Transceiver
The Linx Technologies LT Series offers bi-directional communication in the 260 ~ 470MHz ISM band. The transceiver is capable of generating +10dBm into a 50ohm load and achieves an outstanding typical sensitivity of -112dBm. The module allows for the transparent transfer of serial data at rates of up to 10kbps over distances of up to 3,000 feet from virtually any data source, including microcontrollers and transcoder chips.
