Powering options choice for CC2510/2511
I'm powering my board from 3.6V lithium battery, and right now I'm using a 3.0V LDO to power the MCU.
I guess its not the most efficient way to conserve energy.
Can anyone recommend (and maybe provide reference design) a buck converter design?
I'm have some concerns about noise and etc.
Refer to DN019 (Powering Low Power RF Products) from TI web
Thanks, It slipped my searches.
Can someone recommend, based on his actual experience, a good choice for a DC to DC converter to be used with the CC2510 (I only found for the CC2500)?
I understand that I should choose one without the power save mode.
Thanks for your help
The following DC/DC converter can be recommended: http://www.ti.com/lit/gpn/tps62231

Thats for your reply.
The TPS62231 it a fixed 1.8V converter,
And the CC2510 data sheets specify a min. 2.0 V supply.
If I got it right, the CC2510 have its own internal converter that step down the supply to 1.8V
So I just want to make sure that I can use the 62231 even thought its 1.8V output and not 2.0V, (Its a perfect fit for some of my other board needs)
There are different fixed output voltages versions available from 1.0V to 3.3V so I would recommend to use 2.1V or 2.0V version.
