Description

The CC2430 comes in three different flash versions: CC2430F32/64/128, with 32/64/128 KB of flash memory respectively. The CC2430 is a true System-on-Chip (SoC) solution specifically tailored for IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee® applications. It enables ZigBee® nodes to be built with very low total bill-ofmaterial costs. The CC2430 combines the excellent performance of the leading CC2420 RF transceiver with an industry-standard enhanced 8051 MCU, 32/64/128 KB flash memory, 8 KB RAM and many other powerful features. Combined with the industry leading ZigBee® protocol stack (Z-Stack™) from Texas Instruments, the CC2430 provides the market’s most competitive ZigBee® solution.

The CC2430 is highly suited for systems where ultra low power consumption is required. This is ensured by various operating modes. Short transition times between operating modes further ensure low power consumption.
