SimpleLink™ CC2650 Wireless MCU and CC2592 Range Extender Reference Design - 122dB Link Budget


Design files


Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as home and industrial automation, lighting, metering and sensor networks could need a longer RF transmission range than the stand-alone SimpleLink(TM) ultra-low power wireless MCU family of devices offer. The CC2650-CC2592 reference design pairs SimpleLink multi-standard CC2650 wireless MCU with the CC2592 range extender to increase the total link budget to 122 dB, enabling significant increase in RF range.


  • Optimized integrated power amplifier and low-noise amplifier to increase the transmission range of the C2650 wireless MCU by 3x
  • Up to +22dBm output power to achieve a more stable system with longer range
  • A complete wireless MCU + RF range extender reference design and combo solution
  • Muliti-standard support - Enable ZigBee®, 6LoWPAN, Bluetooth Smart® with CC2650, or replace CC2650 with CC2630 or CC2640 wireless MCUs
