Can anyone recommend an FSK receiver chip that is still commercially available (i.e. not discontinued).

I want to make an RC Receiver (for model aeroplanes) and use an AVR to decode the signal.

Thanks,

Pieter Conradie

Hello! Pieter
Why not use a 418/433 Mhz Transmitter/Receiver module and use the UART to transmit data to the Model Aeroplane?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I would like to use my existing transmitter that is operating on the 45 MHz frequency.

Regards
Pieter

Pieter,

Would ther buy chance be a matching reciever unit that you coud use to recieve the signal and then intercept the serial data stream from it dirrectly to your AVR. You will probalby not be albe to use the UART to decode the stream as there would be a proprietry protocol so I presume you have access to that and the timings

There was an article in Circuit Cellar a few months back on this subject. Can't remember what part was used though.

Don't model airplanes run at 72mhz? Are you in USA/Canada?

IF you find a supplier of a chip post it here, I'm interested
