Design RF application

hi all,

I designing application that has following requirement 

1.Count the clock pulses

2.send that count over RF 

3.for each device there is unique identification number that number and count pulses are send it together over RF so at receiver i can store the count. 

4.application must be battery powered and operated with coin cell battery.

can built these application without Microcontroller ??

    Two options exist for a RF part: Transceiver or wireless MCU. A Transceiver needs a MCU to control the part, the wireless MCU contain a MCU meaning that a RF system has to have a microcontroller. 

    Have you looked into the CC1310? (I'm assuming that you want better range that a BLE device like CC2640R2F can give you)

    hi,

    thanks for reply.your RF option is ok for me.But i need to implement that solution without using Microcintroller.so how can count the clock pulses?then i want to store that count in some device and after periodic interval that count is send to receiver side.how i implement that solution with bulk quantity transmitter and receivers ? transmitter side operated with battery.

    As I wrote, a RF solution have to have a MCU. "But i need to implement that solution without using Microcintroller": What is your definition here and what is the background for the requirement?

    hi,

    Due to some paten on microcontrolled  based application.I want to work on without microcrocontroller based solution on transmitter side.but i can use controller receiver side.

    As I said, you have a MCU in the system. This MCU has to be used to control the radio. I assume that you could count clock pulses with an external device but this number has to be given to the MCU that controls the sending of the packet.

    Hi,

    When you say-" send that count over RF "-  What's the Range you're looking for?

    As TER suggested, you can go with CC1310 OR  CC2640R2F . You either have to go with RF transceiver and external controller OR integrated Transceiver+MCU which are based on  SimpleLink platform.

    Thanks.
