ZigBee module, features the CC2530F256 onboard, farther communication distance with PA

This product includes ONLY one CC2530 module, while at least two CC2530 modules are required to setup a ZigBee network.


XCore2530 is a ZigBee module based on CC2530F256.

Basically this module can be used in two aspects :

  • Develop application with the provided firmware
    Combined with our provided firmware, this is a simple ZigBee wireless UART module, just as easy to use as any other UART module, and requires NO knowledge about the complicate ZigBee Specification
  • Develop your own firmware
    In this case, you should start from the very underlying to create your solution, what's more, debuggers (like CC Debugger) and knowledge about ZigBee Specification are also required

XCore2530 Features

  1. As easy to use as any UART modules
  2. Provided firmware : Coordinator, Router, End Device
    • Router firmware is preloaded by default
  3. Supports sending large data packet & fast broadcasting via UART
  4. Supports programming via UART (thanks to the Bootloader, and an serial module is required)
  5. Supports configuring via upper computer software : working mode, UART port, baudrate, signal channel, etc.
  6. MISC
    • Auto networking (at least 1 Coordinator and 1 Router are required)
    • Real-time monitoring the signal intensity between Coordinator, Router, and End Device
    • Onboard power amplifier RXF2401, achieves farther communication distance
