"Comparing transparent and command interfaces" and "Requirements for transparent interface" articles has been uploaded to the RF Design Guide page

Recently, Circuit Design published an article "What is a radio module?" on the website.

This article correctly lists Circuit Design modules that use command control and those that have transparent interface. However, the engineer needs to decide which type would suit his application. So Circuit Design has published another article below to help explain the differences in order that the engineer can make the right choice.

Radio modules that use transparent interface allows the engineer full control over the radio protocol. This is true if the engineer has the necessary knowledge and wants to spend time to perfect the radio communication. However, constructing your own protocol is no trivial task. Essential functions such as frame detection as well as extra features (such as error detection) requires writing a more complex control program. To assist engineers who are not familiar with transparent interfaces, Circuit Design has created an article below.
