2.4 GHz Range Extender


Special note

Potential sensitivity improvement in parametrics table below is based on optimized RF circuitry.


CC2590 is a cost-effective and high performance RF Front End for low-power and low-voltage 2.4-GHz wireless applications.

CC2590 is a range extender for all existing and future 2.4-GHz low-power RF transceivers, transmitters and System-on-Chip products from Texas Instruments.

CC2590 increases the link budget by providing a power amplifier for increased output power, and an LNA with low noise figure for improved receiver sensitivity.

CC2590 provides a small size, high output power RF design with its 4x4-mm QFN-16 package.

CC2590 contains PA, LNA, switches, RF-matching, and balun for simple design of high performance wireless applications.
