CC2652P: 802.15.4 PHY selection & availability on SmartRF Studio 7

Part Number: CC2652P

Hi champs,


In order to evaluate CC2652P radio (in the view of Thread protocol implementation), we like to use SmartRF Studio 7 with CC2652P  to run IEEE802.15.4 and then test the PHY performances

When enabling the IEEE 802.15.4 settings on smartRF studio 7, it seems like there is only one PHY layer/modulation available (IEEE 802.15.4-2006, 250kbps, OQPSK, DSSS = 1:8)


Q1/ Is this PHY/modulation setting is the only one available on SmartRF Studio 7/CC2652P?

Q1a/ If not, how could other PHY/modulation be set ?

Q1b/ What PHY/modulations are available within TI IEEE802.15.4?


Q2/ What 802.15.4 PHY/modulation is used by Thread? Any of the ones available on 802.15.4 ?


Thank you !


Best regards,


  • Hi Guillaume,

    IEEE 802.15.4, 250 kbps, OQPSK, DSSS=1.8 is the only PHY available for and supported by Zigbee and Thread protocols.  This is true for both TI devices and any radio product attempting to achieve Zigbee/Thread certification.
