How to Optimize an ISM Radio Frequency (RF) System

By: Martin Stoehr

Abstract: With industrial/scientific/medical (ISM) band radio frequency (RF) products, often times users are new to the structure of Maxim's low pin-count transmitters and fully integrated superheterodyne receivers. This tutorial provides simple steps that can be taken to get the best performance out of these transmitters and receivers while providing techniques to measure the overall capability of the design.
