Multi-band wireless MCU with integrated power amplifier

The CC1352P device from Texas Instruments is a multiprotocol Sub-1 and 2.4GHz wireless MCU targeting Wireless M-Bus, IEEE 802.15.4g, IPv6-enabled smart objects (6LoWPAN), Thread, Zigbee, KNX RF, Wi-SUN, Bluetooth 5 low energy, and proprietary systems. The device contains a +20-dBm integrated high-power amplifier with best-in-class efficiency for long-range applications.

The CC1352P device is a member of the CC26xx and CC13xx family of cost-effective, ultra-low power, 2.4GHz and Sub-1 GHz RF devices. Very low active RF and microcontroller (MCU) current, in addition to sub-µA sleep current with up to 80KB of RAM retention, provide excellent battery lifetime and allow operation on small coin-cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.

The CC1352P device combines a flexible, very low-power RF transceiver with a powerful 48MHz Arm Cortex-M4F CPU in a platform supporting multiple physical layers and RF standards. A dedicated Radio Controller (Arm Cortex-M0) handles low-level RF protocol commands that are stored in ROM or RAM, thus ensuring ultra-low power and great flexibility. The low power consumption of the CC1352P device does not come at the expense of RF performance; the CC1352P device has excellent sensitivity and robustness (selectivity and blocking) performance.

The CC1352P device is a highly integrated, true single-chip solution incorporating a complete RF system and an on-chip DC/DC converter.

Sensors can be handled in a very low-power manner by a programmable, autonomous ultra-low power Sensor Controller CPU with 4KB of SRAM for program and data. The Sensor Controller, with its fast wake-up and ultra-low-power 2MHz mode is designed for sampling, buffering, and processing both analog and digital sensor data; thus the MCU system can maximise sleep time and reduce active power.

The CC1352P device is part of the SimpleLink microcontroller (MCU) platform, which consists of WiFi, Bluetooth low energy, Thread, Zigbee, Sub-1 GHz MCUs, and host MCUs, which all share a common, easy-to-use development environment with a single core software development kit (SDK) and rich tool set. A one-time integration of the SimpleLink platform enables you to add any combination of the portfolio’s devices into your design, allowing 100% code reuse when your design requirements change.
