Warning: Some customers may want Linx radio frequency (“RF”)
products to control machinery or devices remotely, including machinery
or devices that can cause death, bodily injuries, and/or property
damage if improperly or inadvertently triggered, particularly in industrial
settings or other applications implicating life-safety concerns (“Life and
Property Safety Situations”).
NO OEM LINX REMOTE CONTROL OR FUNCTION MODULE
SHOULD EVER BE USED IN LIFE AND PROPERTY SAFETY
SITUATIONS. No OEM Linx Remote Control or Function Module
should be modified for Life and Property Safety Situations. Such
modification cannot provide sufficient safety and will void the product’s
regulatory certification and warranty.
Customers may use our (non-Function) Modules, Antenna and
Connectors as part of other systems in Life Safety Situations, but
only with necessary and industry appropriate redundancies and
in compliance with applicable safety standards, including without
limitation, ANSI and NFPA standards. It is solely the responsibility
of any Linx customer who uses one or more of these products to
incorporate appropriate redundancies and safety standards for the Life
and Property Safety Situation application.
Do not use this or any Linx product to trigger an action directly
from the data line or RSSI lines without a protocol or encoder/
decoder to validate the data. Without validation, any signal from
another unrelated transmitter in the environment received by the module
could inadvertently trigger the action.
All RF products are susceptible to RF interference that can prevent
communication. RF products without frequency agility or hopping
implemented are more subject to interference. This module does have
a frequency hopping protocol built in, but the developer should still be
aware of the risk of interference.
Do not use any Linx product over the limits in this data guide.
Excessive voltage or extended operation at the maximum voltage could
cause product failure. Exceeding the reflow temperature profile could
cause product failure which is not immediately evident.
Do not make any physical or electrical modifications to any Linx
product. This will void the warranty and regulatory and UL certifications
and may cause product failure which is not immediately evident.

Description
The HumPROTM Series is a frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
transceiver designed for the reliable transfer of digital data. It has a very
fast lock time so that it can quickly wake up, send data and go back to
sleep, saving power consumption in battery-powered applications that
have strict power budgets.
The HumPROTM Series module has several features that make the data
transfer reliable. A Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA) routine ensures
that the channel is clear before the module begins transmitting data.
Automatic acknowledgements ensure that the remote side got valid data.
Multiple hopping patterns enable multiple systems to operate in proximity
without interference. A standard UART interface is used for module
configuration and data transfer.
All HumPROTM Series modules have a unique 32-bit serial number that
can be used as an address. Source and destination addressing support
point-to-point and broadcast links. Address masking by the receiving
module allows for creating subnets. More advanced networks can also be
implemented.
The evaluation module contains the surface mount HumPROTM Series
transceiver module and an MMCX connector on a single board with
through-hole headers. This small board simplifies prototyping with the
HumPROTM Series module.

2, 3, 4, 5, 6 GND Ground
7 MODE_IND O
Mode Indicator. This line indicates module
activity. It can source enough current to drive
a small LED, causing it to flash. The duration
of the flashes indicates the module’s current
state.
8 RESET I This line resets the module when pulled low.
It should be pulled high for normal operation.
9 CMD_DATA_IN I Command Data In. Input line for data (CMD
is high) and serial commands (CMD is low).
10 POWER_DOWN I
Power Down. Pulling this line low places the
module into a low-power state. The module
is not functional in this state. Pull high for
normal operation. Do not leave floating.
11 CMD I
Command Input. When this line is low,
incoming bytes are command data. When
high, incoming bytes are data to be
transmitted.
12, 18, 19,
21–37, 40-56 NC No Electrical Connection. Do not connect
any traces to these lines.

Pin Number Name I/O Description
13 CTS O
UART Clear To Send, active low. This line
indicates to the host microcontroller when
the module is ready to accept data. When
CTS is high, the module is busy. When CTS
is low, the module is ready for data.
14 PB I
Reset non-volatile memory. A sequence
of 4 high pulses on this line, followed by a
prolonged high state causes the module
to reset the non-volatile configuration
parameters to factory default values.
15 CMD_DATA_OUT O Command Data Out. Output line for data
and serial commands
16 LNA_EN O
Low Noise Amplifier Enable. This line is
driven high when receiving. It is intended to
activate an optional external LNA.
17 VCC Supply Voltage
20 PA_EN O
Power Amplifier Enable. This line is driven
high when transmitting. It is intended to
activate an optional external power amplifier.
38 EX O
Exception Output. A mask can be set
to take this line high when an exception
occurs. The line is lowered when the
exception register is read (EXCEPT).
39 CRESP O
Command Response. This line is low when
the data on the CMD_DATA_OUT line is
a response to a command and not data
received over the air.
46 BE O
Buffer Empty. This line is high when the
UART input buffer is empty, indicating
that all data has been transmitted. If
acknowledgment is active, it also indicates
that the receiving module has acknowledged
the data or a retry exception has occurred.

Power Supply Requirements
The transceiver incorporates a precision
low-dropout regulator which allows operation
over a wide input voltage range. Despite this
regulator, it is still important to provide a supply
that is free of noise. Power supply noise can
significantly affect the module’s performance, so
providing a clean power supply for the module
should be a high priority during design.
A 10Ω resistor in series with the supply followed by a 10μF tantalum
capacitor from Vcc to ground helps in cases where the quality of supply
power is poor (Figure 9). This filter should be placed close to the module’s
supply lines. These values may need to be adjusted depending on the
noise present on the supply line.
