ESP32 library for TI CC1100 Low-Power Sub-1 GHz RF Transceiver

Postby loboris » Mon Jun 26, 2017 7:41 pm

ESP32 library and example for TI CC1100 Low-Power Sub-1 GHz RF Transceiver
CC1101 is a low-cost sub-1 GHz transceiver designed for very low-power wireless applications. The circuit is mainly intended for the ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency bands at 315, 433, 868, and 915 MHz, but can easily be programmed for operation at other frequencies in the 300-348 MHz, 387-464 MHz and 779-928 MHz bands.

The RF transceiver is integrated with a highly configurable baseband modem. The modem supports various modulation formats and has a configurable data rate up to 600 kbps.

CC1101 provides extensive hardware support for packet handling, data buffering, burst transmissions, clear channel assessment, link quality indication, and wake-on-radio.

The main operating parameters and the 64- byte transmit/receive FIFOs of CC1101 can be controlled via an SPI interface. In a typical system, the CC1101 will be used together with a microcontroller and a few additional passive components.

The CC1190 850-950 MHz range extender [21] can be used with CC1101 in long range applications for improved sensitivity and higher output power.

How to build

Configure your esp32 build environment as for other esp-idf examples

Clone the repository

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/loboris/ESP32_CC1101_Library.git
Execute menuconfig and configure your Serial flash config and other settings. Included sdkconfig.defaults sets some defaults to be used.
Navigate to CC1101 Example configuration and set CC1101 and example parameters:

Code: Select all

make menuconfig
Make and flash the example.

Code: Select all

make all && make flash
Example

You will need two ESP32 boards and a pair of CC1101 modules, any one will work:

Tested with cheap one from eBay

Connect the CC1101 to the ESP32 SPI interface. SPI pin configuration can be changed, see componnents/cc1100/libcc1100.h for detailes.

Example application creates two tasks, one for transmitting and one for receiving.
The transmitting task sends the current time stamp and current temperature measured by CC1101.
The receiving task prints received data when it is available.
