The CC2630 device is a wireless MCU targeting
ZigBee® and 6LoWPAN
The device is a member of the CC26xx family of cost-effective, ultralow power, 2.4-GHz
RF devices. Very low active RF and MCU current and low-power mode current consumption provide
excellent battery lifetime and allow for operation on small coin cell batteries and in
The CC2630 device contains a 32-bit ARM
Cortex-M3 processor that runs at 48 MHz as the main processor and a rich peripheral feature set
that includes a unique ultralow power sensor controller. This sensor controller is ideal for
interfacing external sensors and for collecting analog and digital data autonomously while the rest
of the system is in sleep mode. Thus, the CC2630 device is ideal for battery-powered and energy harvesting end nodes in
ZigBee and 6LoWPAN networks.
The IEEE 802.15.4 MAC is embedded into ROM and runs partly on an ARM
Cortex-M0 processor. This architecture improves overall system performance and power consumption
and frees up flash memory for the application.
The ZigBee stack is available free of charge from
