The RF6505-CC2530 Reference Design contains schematics and layout files for the RF6505-CC2530 evaluation module.
The reference design demonstrates how to integrate CC2530/CC2531 and with RF6505 from RF Micro Devices, and shows good techniques for decoupling and RF layout. For optimum RF performance, these parts should be copied accurately. The RF6505-CC2530 reference design is a range extender design for the 2.4GHz ISM Bands with two ports on the output for connecting a diversity solution or a test port. It increases the link budget by providing a power amplifier (PA) for increased output power, and a low-noise amplifier (LNA) with low noise figure for improved receiver sensitivity. In addition to these features it provides switches and integrated RF matching for design and high performance wireless systems.
