CC1000 is a true single-chip UHF transceiver designed for very low power and very low voltage wireless applications. The circuit is mainly intended for the ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency bands at 315, 433, 868 and 915 MHz, but can easily be programmed for operation at other frequencies in the 300-1000 MHz range.
The main operating parameters of CC1000 can be programmed via a serial bus, thus making CC1000 a very flexible and easy to use transceiver. In a typical system CC1000 will be used together with a microcontroller and a few external passive components.
CC1000 is based on Chipcons SmartRF® technology in 0.35 µm CMOS.
