Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes, as well as validating and testing their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
For general design guidelines and hardware configuration guidelines, refer to the CC13xx/CC26xx Hardware Configuration and PCB Design Considerations Application Report.
For optimum RF performance, especially when using the high-power PA, it is important to accurately follow the reference design with respect to component values and layout. Failure to do so may lead to reduced RF performance due to balun mismatch. The amplitude- and phase balance through the balun must be <1 dB and <6 degrees, respectively.
PCB stack-up is also critical for proper operation. The CC1352P EVMs and characterization boards are using a finished thickness between the top layer (RF signals) and layer 2 (ground plane) of 175 µm. It is very important to use the same substrate thickness, or slightly thicker, in an end product implementing the CC1352P device.
