Customizable Products

A Customizable platform helps you to create your own RF module. It removes all the RF hardware design and test investment and risk from your design project. You develop the embedded firmware, based on industry standard PHY/MAC layers. We will support with a fully tested module platform and, if the design goes to volume, then we can program your code on the module, creating a module with a unique part-number that can only be purchased by customers that has a LOA (Letter of Authority) from the company that developed the firmware.

Product Details

The Customizable platforms from Radiocrafts are pre-qualified and pre-assessed RF platform that contains all hardware for a complete RF module with 50 Ohm RF I/O, digital serial interfaces, power etc. See the data-sheet for details.

The RC24xx series supports the IEEE 802.15.4 PHY and MAC. The RC188x supports the IEEE 802.15.4g PHY and MAC as well as wMBus implementations

The IEEE 802.15.4 a 2.4 GHz standard that is used for proprietary solutions as well as industry standard such as ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, WirelessHART and ISA100.11a.

The IEEE802.15.4g is a 433 and 868/915 amendment that can be used for proprietary solutions as well as Wi-SUN applications. 868/915 is supported by the RC1880

wMBus is a global standard developed for metering, but is also used in many Industrial applications.

Radiocrafts also provides manufacturing, test and programming of the customer defined firmware in the flash and deliver a fully functional RF module with a unique part-number. Radiocrafts will not sell this part to any other customer, unless they have a Letter of Authority (LOA) from the primary customer.

Radiocrafts offer two series of platform, the RC18x0 that is based on the CC1310 from Texas Instruments and the RC24xx that is based on the CC2530 from Texas Instruments.

The customer will create the firmware using the SimpleLink CC13x0 SDK resp. the CC2530DK that can be downloaded from the Texas Instruments web-site.

The SimpleLink CC13x0 SDK includes the TI 15.4-Stack software, providing an IEEE 802.15.4e/g-based star topology networking solution for Sub-1 GHz band, along with a large set of proprietary RF examples for Sub-1 GHz based on the RF driver through the EasyLink RF abstraction layer.

The CC2530DK comes with various software examples including the IEEE 802.15.4 compliant TIMAC, ZigBee compliant Z-Stack, proprietary SimpliciTI networking protocol.

Once the code is developed, the customer deliver this to code to Radiocrafts to be implemented in the manufacturing flow at Radiocrafts. The programming of the modules will be done after the HW test before the modules are sent to delivery to the ordering customer.
