'True' RF system-on-chip solution

20 November 2002 Electronics Technology

Chipcon's new CC1010 was released this year. Local agent Components & System Design says that Chipcon's CC1000 RF Transceiver received the Product of the Year 2001 award from Wireless Design and Development magazine last year, while this year the CC1010 was awarded with the Lionel Tye Award at the Radio Solution Exhibition as the best contribution to the low power industry for 2002.

The CC1010 - said to be the world's first true RF System-on-Chip solution - is a 300-1000 MHz integrated CMOS RF transceiver and microcontroller. Chipcon's CMOS CC1000 RF transceiver has been integrated on a single die with an industry standard 8051 microcontroller core including on-chip flash non-volatile memory.

The CC1010 is designed primarily for FSK systems in the 315, 433, 868 and 915 MHz ISM/SRD bands, but can easily be programmed for operation at other frequencies between 300 and 1000 MHz. Based on the same proprietary SmartRF02 technology as the CC1000, and benefits include low-power, low-cost, high performance, flexibility and maximum integration.

With the CC1010, RF development is much simplified, having ample processing power, flash memory and peripherals to build a complete RF-system. This 64-lead TQF packaged device has high sensitivity (typically -107 dBm), programmable output power up to +10 dBm, data rate up to 76,8 Kbps and works on 2,7-3,6 V supply voltage.
