Extender Boosts ZigBee Range By 7x

Texas Instruments’ SimpleLink CC2592 range extender provides up to a 7x improvement in range when paired with the company’s 2.4-GHz low-power RF solutions for ZigBee, 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN, and Bluetooth low energy. When paired with the SimpleLink ZigBee CC2538 wireless MCU, it 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.

Operating temperature range is –40°C to 125°C, making it suitable for industrial applications, plus gateways, electric and gas meters, home and building automation, lighting, safety and security systems. It comes in a 4x4 quad flat no-lead (QFN) package.
