AS3930 Low Frequency Wakeup Receiver

ams' high performance, single-channel 125kHz wakeup receiver requires minimal external components

ams - AS3930 Low Frequency Wakeup Receiverams' AS3930 is a single-channel, low power ASK receiver, which is able to generate a wakeup upon detection of a data signal that uses an LF carrier frequency between 110 and 150 kHz. The integrated correlator can be used for detection of a programmable 16-bit wakeup pattern.

The AS3930 provides a digital RSSI value, and it supports a programmable data rate and Manchester decoding with clock recovery. The AS3930 offers a real-time clock (RTC), which is derived from either a crystal oscillator or the internal RC oscillator.

The programmable features of AS3930 enable the optimization of its settings for achieving a longer distance while retaining a reliable wakeup generation. The sensitivity level of AS3930 can be adjusted in the presence of a strong field or in noisy environments.
