The CC1020 device is a true single-chip UHF transceiver designed for very low-power and very low-voltage wireless applications. The circuit is mainly intended for the ISM (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency bands at 402, 424, 426, 429, 433, 447, 449, 469, 868, and 915 MHz, but can easily be programmed for multichannel operation at other frequencies in the 402- to 470-MHz and 804- to 930-MHz range.
The CC1020 device is especially suited for narrow-band systems with channel spacing of 12.5 or 25 kHz complying with ARIB STD-T67 and EN 300 220.
The main operating parameters of the CC1020 device can be programmed with a serial bus, thus making the CC1020 device a very flexible and easy-to-use transceiver.
In a typical system, the CC1020 device will be used together with a microcontroller and a few external passive components.
TI recommends using the latest RF performance line device CC1120 as successor of the CC1020 device: www.ti.com/rfperformanceline.
