Product description

The Clyde Space CMC; UHF / VHF transceiver is a compact telemetry and command radio designed for CubeSat missions.

The UHF / VHF transceiver implements full-duplex GMSK and AFSK modulation schemes with data rates of 9600 and 1200 baud respectively. The UHF / VHF transceiver is ideal for missions where a low data-rate downlink / uplink is required. The UHF / VHF transceiver can also be used as a robust lower data-rate back-up radio for a higher data-rate radio. The AX.25 protocol scheme implemented is popular among amateur radio enthusiasts.
