LMT3
Issue 1, 22 January 2013
NBFM Multi-channel transmitter for 868MHz SRD band
The LMT3 is a 25kHz channel narrowband
multichannel transmitter offering up to 25mW RF
power. LMT3 can be paired with the Category 1
compliant receiver intended for European 869.2869.25MHz Social Alarm application. It can also be
used for any 868 - 870MHz band Non-Specific SRD
applications. The module offers a low power,
reliable data link in an industry-standard pin out and
footprint.

Notes:
1. Serial programming is by an inverted, CMOS logic level, 2400 baud RS232 datastream applied to
the P0 pin.
2. Channel select inputs have pullups (50kΩ) to 3v internal rail. Do not exceed 3V logic levels on this
port.
3. Channel select inputs are active low
4. TXE has a 100kΩ pullup to Vcc
5. All pins are on an 0.1" grid
6. The pins 5a/b are not present, but are included in footprint for compatibility with other units in this
family
7. In the 'off' state a PIN switch open circuits the RF output pin. There are no 'off' state spuri.
8. 10mW unit will operate (with marginally reduced specifications and lower (6-8mW) output power)
from a 3.0V rail. This must be well regulated and without noise or ripple, as in this state the unit's
internal regulator no longer operates, and provides no supply rejection.

Serial interface commands
2400 baud RS232. 8 bit data, no parity, 1 start bit, 1 or 2 stop bits.
Serial data is sent to the unit on one of the parallel channel select pins (P0). It is very important that the unit
does not 'decode' switch bounce in ordinary operation as a command string, or spurious re-writing of the
e2prom will result. For this reason the user must send the 16 character string ENABLESERIALMODE
(followed by a carriage return) to activate the serial command mode before sending any of the command
strings listed below. Command mode is disabled on power down, or on reception of a # character. To
successfully program the unit, it must be enabled (TXE low).
GOCHAN aa

Serially select channel aa, where aa is ch0 to ch31

25kHz
A pause of at least 50ms must be allowed between command strings (EEPROM
programming time).
SINGLE mode does not store the N value in EEPROM. Therefore the unit is inoperative after
a power down until either another valid SINGLE command is received, or mode is changed
by a GOCHAN, SETPAR or SETSER command. SINGLE mode is intended for frequency
agile applications.
If an N value greater than 65535 is needed then an offset of +65536 can be selected by
setting bit 15 of the R value high (the N value is then reduced by 65536 of course)"
Example: Fout = 869.2125
Fcomp = 12.5KHz
N = 69537 This exceeds 65535, so:
Bit 15 of R is set : RVALUE 33808
65536 is subtracted: LOAD00 4001
