Texas Instruments introduced a new Sub-1 GHz RF value line family, offering developers low-cost connectivity solutions for sub-1 GHz RF applications such as remote controls, toys, home and building automation, and security systems.
The Sub-1 GHz RF Value Line family launched with the CC115L transmitter,CC113L receiver and CC110L transceiver, all available immediately. In high volume, the line offers a complete, one-way RF link for less than $1. The new devices are based on TI’s Sub-1 GHz CC1101 RF technology, and are pin-, register- and code-compatible, as well as backwards compatible with existing sub-1 GHz systems.
The CC11xLDK-868-915 and CC11xLEMK-433 development kits provide complete hardware performance testing and software development platforms for the new product family. The kits also offer new low-cost reference designs, with a compact PCB antenna for 433, 868, 915 MHz, featuring a reduced component count and complete design ready for FCC and ETSI certification.
The small-size, compact PCB helix antenna represents only a quarter of the size of previous PCB antennas, and is useful for applications requiring high antenna efficiency in a compact area.
