The PULSAR-VUTRX is a compact telemetry and command radio designed for nanosatellite missions, compatible with the CubeSat standard with a CubeSat kit PC/104 form factor.
It operates VHF uplink and UHF downlink serving both commercial and amateur frequencies. Featuring a beacon and DTMF backdoor, the PULSAR-VUTRX offers unparalleled reliability in flight. PULSAR-VUTRX implements 9600 bps GMSK and 1200 bps.
AFSK and operates in full-duplex mode. A combination of AFSK and GMSK is configurable for transmit and receive. These modes are selected as an I2C command and the default mode will be selected if a reset occurs. The default mode can be requested at time of production.
