An IQRF transceiver (TR) is a tiny intelligent electronic board with complete circuitry needed for implementation of wireless RF connectivity. It is a basic communication component of the IQRF platform, used also in all IQRF gateways, routers etc.
Regarding DPA approach support, IQRF transceivers are aplicable in two variants (from IQRF OS v3.05D):
|Transceiver variant||Under OS||Under DPA|
|TR||Fully programmable||Yes (if available)||–|
|DCTR||Fully programmable||Yes (if available)||Yes|
