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) – Texas Instruments (TI) 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.
