Chipcon AS released the CC1050, an integrated RF transmitter for the 300 MHz to 1000 MHz SRD (Short-Range Device) frequency bands. The CC1050 requires only a minimum of external components. The very low current consumption extends battery life. Key features of the CC1050 include 2.1 V to 3.6 V supply voltage, output power of +12 dBm at 433 MHz and +8 dBm at 868 and 915 MHz, data rates up to 76.8 kbit/s, programmable carrier frequency, and very few external components. The circuit is intended primarily for the most commonly used frequency bands at 315, 433, 868 and 915 MHz but can be programmed for operation at any other frequencies in the 300 MHz to 1000 MHz range. The CC1050 comes in a small TSSOP-24 package and is specified over a temperature range from 40°C to 85°C.
