cc1111 low power rf soc with usb controller
CC1111 Low-Power RF SoC with USB Controller

The CC1111 is the industry’s first sub-1 GHz RF system-on-chip (SoC) with an integrated USB controller, enabling a fast and easy bridge between PCs and RF.


The integration of a high-performance radio, microcontroller, flash memory and USB controller results in smaller PCB size, easier assembly, reduced overall system cost and faster time-to-market.


The CC1111 is pin- and register-compatible with the CC1110 (sub-1 GHz SoC), CC2511 (2.4 GHz SoC with USB) and CC2510 (2.4 GHz SoC) to deliver solutions for both sub-1 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency ranges.

SoC Family

Combined with TI’s SimpliciTI™ network protocol, the CC1111 provides easy development and improved low-power designs for wireless sensor networking applications.

simpliciti network protocol
SimpliciTI™ Network Protocol

SimpliciTI™ Network Protocol

  • SimpliciTI is a proprietary low-power RF network protocol aimed at small, low-power RF networks
  • Resource requirements (MCU) are minimal which results in low system cost
  • Easy implementation and deployment
  • Low-power MCUs and RF chips are not enough to achieve low power consumption in end applications. A well engineered low-power RF protocol is essential
  • TI wants to help the customer all the way from idea to mass production
  • Runs out-of-the-box on several TI RF platforms: A small MSP430 + latest CC transceivers or our new 8051 RF SoCs
  • Range can be extended through repeaters
  • The circles represent range of gateway and extended range of repeaters
tools packet sniffer
Tools: Packet Sniffer

Packet Sniffer

  • General packet sniffer available, runs on the dev kits
  • Already supports SimpliciTI network protocol
  • Packet sniffer can be used with all application examples, not just SimpliciTI
  • The packet sniffer visualizes all RF traffic and content in a graphical format.
  • Each packet receives a time stamp and RF protocol flow can be inspected in chronological order
tools smartrf studio
Tools: SmartRF Studio

SmartRF Studio

  • Full support for all four SoCs
  • Supports code export of all registers
  • RX and TX packet testing can be done with any RF setting
  • Includes suggested RF settings which are characterized (”preferred settings”)
