Why us for Sub-1 GHz?
We provide a broad portfolio of wireless devices ranging from transceivers to wireless and Multi-band MCUs:
- Robust software options: out-of-box 15.4-Stack star-network solution and proprietary network support
- Superior ultra-low power performance over a broad temperature range versus competition
- Save power with a programmable sensor controller core capable of executing simple tasks while the system CPU and Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU core are in sleep mode
- Up to -125dBm sensitivity and data rates up to 4Mbps
Wireless MCUs optimized for ultra-low power performance
Our SimpleLink CC13xx/CC26xx wireless MCUs are designed with ultra-low power performance in mind, utilizing an autonomous CPU core called the sensor controller for power optimization. In the case of a mechanical flow meter with an impeller, the main MCU core could sleep while the sensor controller interfaces with a LC-sensing subsystem to detect disc rotation and provide accurate water flow rate information , only waking up the main MCU core and radio to wirelessly transmit flow measurement. This type of design can enable ultra-low power consumption, ensuring the multiple years of battery life required for flow meters.

SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz: Sensor to Cloud
End-to-end solution for low power wide area networks (LPWAN) enabling cloud connectivity for sending and receiving sensor data over a long range Sub-1 GHz star network.
The low-power sensor node example application uses our 15.4-Stack to transmit sensor data from SimpleLink CC13xx wireless microcontrollers. Our 15.4-Stack software is included in the SimpleLink CC13x0 and CC13x2 SDKs.
The SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz Sensor to Cloud gateway is the central node in the star network and acts as a secure bidirectional link between sensor nodes and the cloud.
The IoT cloud application receives sensor node data from the gateway and communicates it to your choice of cloud-based user interfaces.
Build your own or migrate an existing proprietary Sub-1 GHz network solution
We offer a robust set of proprietary software examples and documentation provided through the SimpleLink SDK and SimpleLink academy that can be used as a foundation for creating a Sub-1 GHz proprietary network or migrating an existing network.
Packet TX/RX training
Most customizable network solution with access to the RF configuration file and RF Drivers. Send and receive Sub-1 GHz packets within minutes with packet transmission and wake-on-radio examples, and validate your transmission with a packet error-rate meter.
EasyLink network building blocks
Higher level Sub-1 GHz network building blocks that abstract the RF driver layer and provide examples for two way communication with acknowledgments, listen before talk, over-the-air-upgrade, and basic network formation.
