Wireless Transceivers

AIR for Wireless Audio

The AIR module family includes a CD-quality, wireless audio solution incorporating the Texas Instruments CC8520 PurePath audio wireless radio SoC, CC2591 range extender, and an integral antenna. Packaged to afford you the industry's smallest package (only 11x19x 2.5mm), the A8520E24A91 is an FCC- and IC-certified, ETSI-compliant radio module designed for effortless integration into a wide range of RF applications.

The A8520E24A91 is a high-performance, FCC & IC certified and ETSI compliant audio module based on the Texas Instruments CC8520 transceiver and CC2591 range extender in the industry’s smallest package (11x19x2.5mm).

The module incorporates the required RF matching and filtering, crystal, integral antenna, and digital line filtering for good noise reduction and sensitivity. The result is quick low power wireless connectivity without having to deal with extensive protocol, RF, antenna design and regulatory compliance, providing quick time to market.
