The CC2420 is a true single-chip 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 compliant RF transceiver designed for low-power and low-voltage wireless applications. CC2420 includes a digital direct sequence spread spectrum baseband modem providing a spreading gain of 9 dB and an effective data rate of 250 kbps. The CC2420 with external Power Amplifier (PA) solution has been developed to comply with the IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee™ standards’ requirements as well as worldwide regulatory requirements. Compliance has been tested against regulations covered by ETSI EN 300 328 (Europe) and FCC CFR47 Part 15 (US).
The CC2420 with external PA has been developed with a form factor and connectors suitable to be plug-in compatible with the CC2400EB for ease of testing with SmartRF® Studio. A discrete transistor has been used as PA. The CC2420 with external PA has a nominal output of 10dBm and a current consumption of 27-34mA across temperature at 3.3V making it highly suitable for battery operated nodes. The range measured outside (line-of-sight) extended as far as 580m.
