290MHz to 960MHz ASK/FSK Receiver with SPI Interface

High RF Sensitivity Receiver with Low Current Consumption, Ideal for Low-Cost and Power-Sensitive ASK/FSK Applications

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX41470 is a high-performance, low-power receiver that is ideal for amplitude shift-keyed (ASK) and frequency shift-keyed (FSK) data. The receiver can be configured for three popular sub-1GHz bands while using a single low-cost 16MHz crystal: 287MHz to 320MHz, 425MHz to 480MHz, and 860MHz to 960MHz.

The MAX41470 is capable of both ASK and FSK reception and is also fully programmable through an SPI interface.

The receiver has excellent RF sensitivity and allows input signals up to 0dBm of power at the RF input. With an integrated IF filter, a few external components, and low operating/power-down currents, the MAX41470 receiver is ideal for cost- and power-sensitive applications. The chip also includes a low-noise amplifier (LNA), fully differential image-rejection mixer, on-chip phase-locked loop (PLL) with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), received signal strength indicator (RSSI), and digital demodulation.

The device operates in the 1.8V to 3.6V supply voltage range and also features a power-saving, fully programmable, self-polling (duty cycling) mode with preamble detection and interrupt output to wake up an external microcontroller unit (MCU).

The parts are available in a 12-pin thin QFN (TQFN) package and are specified for the -40°C to +105°C extended temperature range.
