CC2480A1 (NRND)

Z-Accel 2.4 GHz ZigBee Processor (formerly CCZACC06A1)

Description

The CC2480 (formerly known as CCZACC06) is a cost-effective, low power, Z-Accel ZigBee Processor that provides full ZigBee functionality with a minimal development effort.

Z-Accel is a solution where TI's ZigBee stack, Z-Stack, runs on a ZigBee Processor and the application runs on an external microcontroller. The CC2480 handles all the timing critical and processing intensive ZigBee protocol tasks, and leaves the resources of the application microcontroller free to handle the application.

Z-Accel makes it easy to add ZigBee to new or existing products at the same time as it provides great flexibility in choice of microcontroller.

CC2480 interfaces any microcontroller through an SPI or UART interface. There is no need to learn a new microcontroller or new tools. CC2480 can for example be combined with an MSP430.

CC2480 supports TI's SimpleAPI. SimpleAPI has only 10 API calls to learn, which drastically simplifies the development of ZigBee applications.
