FS1000A 433MHz RF transmitter and receiver Brief Note

FS1000A 433MHz RF transmitter and receiver Brief Note For wireless application design. This 433MHz Tx and Rx module uses ASK (Amplitude Shift Keying) Modulation. These modules are used in multiple applications like, For Short distance communication, Home Automation, Remote controls and Car security etc.., Many manufacturers producing these TX RX modules with frequency range from 315MHz to 334MHz. Especially Wenshing from Taiwan Makes (303.875MHz / 310MHz / 315MHz / 318MHz / 418MHz / 433.92MHz) Wireless ASK RF Transmitter and Receiver. Due to its simple operation and shape, these modules are widely used in many wireless applications. By understanding its operation and internal schematic you can also explore the ability of ASK RF Transmitter and Receiver.

Before jump into the Hardware and Schematic operations, let us recall What is ASK? and How it is Work? We know Amplitude Shift Keying is the part of Digital Modulation Techniques. Here input is Digital data either logic HIGH (1) or logic LOW (0) and the Carrier is sinusoidal wave with 433MHz (frequency varies with respect to Tx Rx Module). Depends on the Digital unipolar binary sequence transistor switch Allows and Stops the Carrier sinusoidal wave. At the output it is appeared as Amplitude shift keyed wave. Due to its frequency range and antenna circuitry it becomes RF wave and propagates.

ASK Waveform

As you can see how the ASK wave S(t) is modulated by using the Digital Data m(t), Carrier Frequency C(t). Depends on the ASK modulator Switch, data modulation (bit rate) varies.

Construction & Working

The Transmitter uses 433MHz Crystal oscillator to produce Carrier signal and Transistor Q1 S8050 acts as modulator switch and modulates Digital input data with Carrier signal and converts it into ASK Wave.(SWG18) 8 Turns and 3 Turns coil produce electromagnet wave that can be propagate using Antenna. The schematic inside given for reference and not exact replication of Module. Here the module picture uses 433.92MHz Saw Resonator with to-39 Case.

The 433MHz Receiver Module Contains the following circuits, 1. Rectifier, 2. Envelope Detector, 3. Comparator and 4. Output Buffer.

After Receiving the ASK RF signal, it is amplified by the transistor T1 and Rectified by using two 1N4148 Diodes. Then the Comparator by using LM358 Compares and separates Enveloped signal then it is converted into Square wave (binary sequence) as Data output.
