MIKROE 6LoWPAN C Click carries the CC2520 2.4GHz RF transceiver. The click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over SPI interface, with additional functionality provided by the following pins on the mikroBUS™ line: PWM, INT, RST, AN.
The CC2520 is TI's second-generation ZigBee®/IEEE 802.15.4 RF transceiver for the 2.4GHz unlicensed ISM band. This chip enables industrial grade applications by offering state-of-the-art selectivity/co-existence, excellent link budget, operation up to 125°C and low voltage operation.
In addition, the CC2520 provides extensive hardware support for frame handling, data buffering, burst transmissions, data encryption, data authentication, clear channel assessment, link quality indication and frame timing information.
The antenna is intended for use with all 2.4 GHz applications. It uses a ground plane in order to radiate efficiently, but this ground plane must not extend underneath the antenna itself.
