RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Chips for a Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum transmitter ? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Looking for parts to implement a Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum transmitter. Ideally a single-chip solution would be nice. Not sure about frequency or chip rates etc yet. Just looking for some parts to start with.

Try looking at Cypress Semiconductor. They have a line of 2.4 GHz ICs for FHSS and DSSS.

http://www.cypress.com/?rID=34487

2.4 GHz CyFi™ Transceiver

Features

2.4 GHz Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) Radio Transceiver
Operates in the unlicensed worldwide Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band (2.400 GHz to 2.483 GHz)
21 mA Operating Current (Transmit at -5 dBm)
Transmit Power Up to 4 dBm
Receive Sensitivity up to -97 dBm
Sleep Current less than 1 µA
DSSS Data Rates up to 250 kbps, GFSK Data Rate of 1 Mbps
Low External Component Count
Auto Transaction Sequencer (ATS) - no MCU intervention
For more, see pdf

Functional Overview

The CYRF7936 IC is designed to implement wireless device links operating in the worldwide 2.4 GHz ISM frequency band. It is intended for systems compliant with worldwide regulations covered by ETSI EN 301 489-1 V1.41, ETSI EN 300 328-1 V1.3.1 (Europe), FCC CFR 47 Part 15 (USA and Industry Canada), and TELEC ARIB_T66_March, 2003 (Japan).

The CYRF7936 contains a 2.4 GHz CyFi radio modem which features a 1 Mbps GFSK radio front-end, packet data buffering, packet framer, DSSS baseband controller, and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI). CYRF7936 features a SPI interface for data transfer and device configuration.
