XDL Micro

The XDL Micro is a 0.5-2.0 Watt UHF transceiver designed for integration into products that require either a one or two-way radio communication link covering 70 MHz in a single band. This sophisticated radio utilizes Pacific Crest’s next generation XDL modem technology while remaining backward compatible with existing Pacific Crest and other products. Integrating the latest modem technology from the leader in radio frequency data communications instantly puts your products in touch with the world’s largest installed base of GNSS precise positioning systems.
