Layout Information
Product overview
The A2500R24C is a high-performance, FCC & IC
certified and ETSI-compliant connectorized radio
module that incorporates the Texas Instruments
CC2500 transceiver chip in the industry’s smallest
package (9 x 12 x 2.5mm) and is compatible with
all TI-approved software stacks.
Top 2 pads optional for compatibility with other modules. Refer to
User’s Manual for additional layout guidelines. Dimensions in mm.
With an LGA pad footprint and industry-standard
U.FL button connector receptacle, this module is
designed to effortlessly integrate into a wide
range of applications, including: industrial control,
building automation, low-power wireless sensor
networks, lighting control, and automated meter
reading.
The A2500R24C has an RoHS-compliant ENIG
finish and is packaged on tape & reel or in matrix
trays for high-volume automated manufacturing.
