Please note that this product is not recommended for new designs.
The MC13201 is the 2nd generation 2.4 GHz band transceiver designed for wireless sensing and control applications that require low-cost, simple point-to-point and star networks. It builds on
the first generation product by integrating a transmit/receive switch that lowers the overall component count, size and cost of the solution. The MC13201 includes a complete packet modem
capable of formatting data into packets with 125 byte payload. It has an over the air data rate of 250 kbps using O-QPSK modulation and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) coding. The
MC13201 radio targets proprietary applications that require wireless point-to-point or star networks and included the NXP® Simple MAC (SMAC) software.
The four wire serial peripheral interface (SPI) allows interface to a variety of processors, providing developers to tailor the solution to meet their needs. NXP offers a variety of MCU that
range from 8 to 32bit that easily connects to the MC13201.
