RF range extender for 2.4 GHz networks

22 Oct 2008

Texas Instruments launched its CC2590 RF range extender for 2.4-GHz wireless applications, such as ZigBee, wireless sensor networks and industrial, consumer and audio equipment.

According to TI, the CC2590 extends range up to eight times the line-of-sight by integrating a power amplifier for improved typical output power of +12 dBm and a low-noise amplifier for improved receiver sensitivity of +6 dB.

In addition to a power amplifier and low-noise amplifier, the CC2590 integrates switches, RF-matching, inductors and balun, which simplifies high-performance designs and enables customers to develop a high output power wireless solution with very few external components.

The CC2590 provides a seamless interface to all of TI's existing and future 2.4-GHz RF transceivers, transmitters and system-on-chip products for improved RF performance, simplified development and reduced time-to-market, according to TI.

The CC2590 also complements the recently introduced CC2591, which extends range up to 15 times line-of-sight with up to +22 dBm output power, TI added.
