The CC2630 is a wireless MCU targeting ZigBee and 6LoWPAN applications.
The device is a member of the CC26xx family of cost-effective, ultra-low power, 2.4-GHz RF devices. Very low active RF and MCU current, and low-power mode current consumption provides excellent battery lifetime and allows operation on small coin cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.
The CC2630 contains a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor running at 48-MHz as the main processor and a rich peripheral feature set, including a unique ultra-low power sensor controller, ideal for interfacing external sensors and/or collecting analog and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode.
This makes the CC2630 ideal for battery-powered and energy harvesting end nodes in ZigBee / 6LoWPAN networks.
The IEEE 802.15.4 MAC is embedded into ROM and runs partly on an ARM Cortex®-M0 processor. This architecture improves overall system performance and power consumption and frees up flash memory for the application.
