Texas Instruments' CC1200 is a fully-integrated single-chip radio transceiver designed for high-performance at very low-power and low-voltage operation in cost-effective wireless systems. All filters are integrated, removing the need for costly external SAW and IF filters. The device is mainly intended for the ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency bands at 164-190 MHz, 410-475 MHz, and 820-950 MHz.
The CC1200 provides extensive hardware support for packet handling, data buffering, burst transmissions, clear channel assessment, link quality indication, and Wake-On-Radio. The CC1200 main operating parameters can be controlled via an SPI interface. In a typical system, the CC1200 will be used together with a microcontroller and a few external passive components.
