I am looking for a microcontroller that has radio and WOR (wake on radio) feature all in one...basically a system on chip solution with low power consumption.

I was checking suppliers like TI etc... and couldn't find an all in one solution. TI for example has MSP430 as a nice low power uC, and CC1101 radio chip with WOR function. Too bad that they don't provide this as a single product...but maybe they do and I couldn't find it yet.

I wonder if you know a solution with the features I said....please let me know!

The application I have in mind is quite limited in space, so the smaller the solution, the better!

In particular I am looking for a 433 MHZ radio

How about cc430 (msp430 and cc1101 in one)? I used one in 304 and 433 mhz


Have You Checked Nordic Devices

They offer micro-controller solutions with Ultra Low Power Wireless. Their ShockBurst technology is Quite Famous !

Here are two such products.

8 bit micro based

32 bit cortex-m0 based

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you recommending a micro that has an in-built radio i.e. an all in one solution? If you are could you highlight the device please? \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Jun 16 '13 at 17:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Andyaka No. Definitely not a micro-controller with inbuilt rf. But a micro+rf solution. In past I have searched for exactly this. Will sure put a link to device. My (mobile)internet is running too slow.. \$\endgroup\$ – vvy Jun 16 '13 at 17:48
  • \$\begingroup\$ Isn't this what the OP has already located from TI? Are you offering an alternative to what he specifically says he is not looking for? \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Jun 16 '13 at 17:53
  • \$\begingroup\$ The OP is asking for a single product. Ti + CC1101 are separate. Nordic has the kind he's looking for unified. Sorry for confusion ! \$\endgroup\$ – vvy Jun 16 '13 at 17:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ OK sounds cool! \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Jun 16 '13 at 17:56
