What is an RF Module?

An RF Module is a small electronic circuit which is used to receive, transmit or transceive radio waves on one of a number of carrier frequencies. RF Modules are often used in consumer applications including wireless alarm systems, garage door openers, industrial remote controls, wireless home automation systems and smart sensor applications. Due to RF modules not requiring line-of-sight operation, they are often used instead of infrared remote controls. A module is a self-contained component of a system, which has a well defined interface to the other components. An RF module is a functional integration of semiconductor devices.
