TI increases range up to 7x for low-power 2.4 GHz wireless networks

New SimpleLink™ CC2592 range extender delivers a low cost, high temperature, small form factor design for worldwide operation

DALLAS, March 18, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the SimpleLink™ CC2592 range extender that provides up to a 7x improvement in range when paired with TI's 2.4 GHz low power RF solutions for ZigBee®, 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN and Bluetooth® low energy networks. The first launched pairing is the CC2592 with the SimpleLink ZigBee CC2538 wireless microcontroller (MCU) to speed time to market of ZigBee-enabled equipment. The combined solution benefits from -101 dBm sensitivity and +20 dBm output power, which raises the link budget by 17 dB and equates to up to a 7x range improvement. To order a CC2538-CC2592 evaluation kit please visit the TI eStore.

As a low cost, industrial temperature solution, the CC2592 offers extended range for a variety of applications including gateways, electric and gas meters, home and building automation, lighting, safety and security systems. Additionally, the SimpleLink CC2592 range extender is a highly integrated solution with small external BOM, which reduces cost, simplifies layout and allows for smaller end-equipment form factors.
