CC1200: About the use of the 137MHz--158.3MHz band
Part Number: CC1201
My Customer is looking for the following topic:
We need a specific transmitter for the VHF band.
More specifically, we are currently looking for an adjustable integrated GMSK transmitter circuit in the frequency band 136 - 173 MHz with a data-rate of 224kbit/s.
The Texas Instruments TI CC1201 might be able to meet the specifications?
A look in the data-sheet showed that the device is specified for the bands 137-158.3MHz and for the band 164-190MHz.
Is it possible to tune the transmitter to the whole band 136-173MHz? Receiving is not important for us.
If not, is there an alternative?
Best Regards and Thanks
Due to how the LO divider is programmed, there will be a gap between 158.3 MHz and 164 MHz that can't be used, see chapter 9.12 in the User guide:
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Vegard H:
thanks for the response. Do we have a device which can provide the full bandwidth (136-173MHz with 224kbit/s data rate)?
In reply to Jan Bock:
Unfortunately I don't think we have any devices covering the whole range. Can the CC1312 be a option? It can cover 143 to 176 MHz.
