Product overview
Module Block Diagram
The A2530R24AZ1 is a high-performance, FCC & IC certified
and ETSI-compliant ZigBee®/IEEE 802.15.4 RF SOC module
that incorporates the Texas Instruments CC2530 transceiver
chip in the industry’s smallest package (11 x 19 x 2.5 mm). The
module incorporates a crystal, the required RF matching and
filtering for regulatory compliance, plus filtering on select digital
lines for better noise reduction and sensitivity. The modules
operate in the global non-licensed 2.4GHz ISM/SRD frequency
band. These radio modules are ideal for achieving low power
wireless connectivity without having to deal with extensive
Protocol, RF design and regulatory compliance, allowing quick
time to market. The modules are 100% RF-tested to provide
consistent performance.
The A2530R24AZ1 has an RoHS-compliant ENIG finish and
is packaged on tape & reel or in matrix trays for high-volume
automated manufacturing.
