AM OOK Receivers

Receiving AM Radio Signals Using Digital ASK Modulation: Receiving Data From Sensors Or Remote Controls

ASK-Receivers receive AM (Amplitude Modulation) radio waves for digital communication: they use ASK (Amplitude-Shift keying) to receive encoded bits or symbols.

ASK-Receivers can receive any ASK-encoded digital information. This is what makes them very versatile:

  • Remote Control Solutions: if you want to make a device remote controllable, add a ASK receiver that can pick up a signal sent by a remote control. With generic ASK receivers (as discussed here), you will also need a microcontroller programmed to decode the EV1527-encoded messages sent out by the remote control. For simple solutions without a microcontroller, you better get a dedicated EV1527 receiver that comes with a EV1527 encoder on-board.
  • Data Transmission: for one-way digital data transmission, you can place a ASK receiver on the receiving side. For example, a sensor can use a ASK sender to send sensor data, and at a central place, a ASK receiver can be attached to a microcontroller to gather all sensor data from various sensors.


Please do leave comments below. I am using utteran.ce, an open-source and ad-free light-weight commenting system.

Here is how your comments are stored

Whenever you leave a comment, a new github issue is created on your behalf.

  • All comments become trackable issues in the Github Issues section, and I (and you) can follow up on them.

  • There is no third-party provider, no disrupting ads, and everything remains transparent inside github.

Github Users Yes, Spammers No

To keep spammers out and comments attributable, all you do is log in using your (free) github account and grant the permission to submit issues on your behalf.

If you don’t have a github account yet, go get yourself one - it’s free and simple.

If for any reason you do not feel comfortable with letting the commenting system submit issues for you, then visit Github Issues directly, i.e. by clicking the red button Submit Issue at the bottom of each page, and submit your issue manually. You control everything.


For chit-chat and quick questions, feel free to visit and participate in Discussions. They work much like classic forums or bulletin boards. Just keep in mind: your valued input isn’t equally well trackable there.
