ccRF Click Board
The ccRF Click Board™ from MikroE is an add-on communication board that employs a CC2500 low-power 2.4 GHz RF module, meant for the 2400-2483.5 MHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency band. The 2.4 GHz RF transceiver, designed for low-power wireless apps, is incorporated with a highly configurable baseband modem that supports several modulation formats. The board also features a PCB trace antenna. Intended for high sensitivity and low current consumption, CC2500 module has a programmable data rate from 1.2 to 500 kBaud. The maximum device range is up to 20 metres in open space. The ccRF Click Board™ make use of the MikroBUS SPI (MOSI, MISO, SCK, CS), RST and PWM lines to communicate with the target board microcontroller. The board is designed to support a 3.3V power supply only. It has a green LED power indicator.
The ccRF Click Board™ is an ideal choice for consumer electronics, wireless audio, wireless game controllers, wireless keyboard and mouse, RF enabled remote controls and many more.

IC/Module: CC2500 2.4 GHz RF Transceiver
Intended for very low-power wireless applications, CC2500 is a 2.4 GHz transceiver integrated with a highly configurable baseband modem. It features a configurable data rate up to 500 kBaud, and is designed to work in the 2400-2483.5 MHz ISM and SRD frequency band. The main operating parameters and the 64-byte transmit/receive FIFOs of CC2500 is controlled through an SPI interface.
ccRF Click operates with extremely low power consumption. In the sleep mode, it consumes only up to 400nA current. It features wake-on-radio functionality for automatic low-power RX polling and has fast start-up time, i.e, 240 us from SLEEP to RX or TX mode.
PCB Trace Antenna
ccRF Click is equipped with a PCB trace antenna that works in the 2400-2483.5 MHz frequency band. It has a range of up to 20 metres (maximum) in open space.
