Hi

The datasheet for part AT86RF212B says:

"O-QPSK with... 1000kb/s PSDU data rate".

Is it possible to achieve overall 1000kb/s data rate?

I tried to research "PSDU data rate", but I'm only seeing references to TCP chips, which this isn't, so I'm confused.

My application is streaming audio.

Thx

This topic has a solution.

If you look in the datasheet, you will find a diagram showing the PSDU structure - that will show you how much of a PSDU is "payload" and how much is "overhead"...

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

No, it is not possible. In a peer2peer mode with CSMA/CA, ACKs and retries disabled you can get around 800 kbps. And that's basically as close to 1 Mbps as you will get.
