Low Power RF Developer Network

New eZ430-Chronos

An intelligent reprogrammable sports watch featuring wireless connectivity, ultra-low power consumption and CC430 MCU on-chip integration.

The CC430 combines leading MSP430 MCU and low-power RF technology
Bringing personal and industrial wireless networking to the mass market
The CC430 technology platform – offering the industry's lowest power, single-chip radio-frequency (RF) family for microcontroller (MCU)-based applications. By making RF design easy, small, performance-rich and power-efficient, the CC430 platform helps advance RF networking applications including industrial/building automation, asset tracking, energy harvesting, industrial monitoring and tamper detection, personal wireless networks, alarm and security systems, sports/body monitoring and automatic metering infrastructure (AMI).

The CC430F61xx and CC430F513xx families leverage TI’s industry leading RF expertise and ultra-low-power MSP430™ microcontroller to offer a powerful sub-1GHz ISM band RF protocol/applications processor. Supported by the well-known and easy to use MSP430 tool kit, as well as RF design tools such as SmartRF® Studio, the CC430 allows fast and efficient design-ins.

The MSP430 product family is an ideal protocol/applications microcontroller for various low power wireless applications. See www.ti.com/embeddedrf for more details on MSP430 use for your low power wireless application.

CC430 Block Diagram
The CC430 ecosystem
RF / Wireless networking is emerging as a key driver in several applications. While wireless applications are easy and convenient for the end user, the successful adoption of any wireless system is dependent on the robustness, interoperability and ease of use of the product. This in turn depends on the hardware and software infrastructure. More so than wired communication applications, the presence of varied RF protocols (some still emerging, in standards bodies) across the spectrum of applications and regulatory oversight over some of the RF bands around the world increases the importance of a proven ecosystem.

Texas Instruments is partnering with several industry leaders in the hardware and software fields to bring a compelling suite of options for our customers to enable various applications.
