Low Cost, Low-Power 2.4 GHz RF Transceiver Designed for Low-Power Wireless Apps in the 2.4 GHz ISM B
The CC2500 is a low-cost 2.4 GHz transceiver designed for very low-power wireless applications. The circuit is intended for the 2400-2483.5 MHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) and SRD (Short Range Device) frequency band.
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 500 kBaud.
CC2500 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 CC2500 can be controlled via an SPI interface. In a typical system, the CC2500 will be used together with a microcontroller and a few additional passive components.

Receiver Sensitivity (單位: dbm) :這個愈小表示其接收訊號靈敏度愈好。如有一個energy 是-130dbm, Sensitivity 為-140 dbm 的RF, 可以收到感知此訊號, 而Sensitivity 為-120dbm 則感知不到此訊號。
RF power : 功率單位用mW表示, 但常用log表示,在數線上才好表示 dbm 。 dBm=10*log(pf/1mw)
用來表示兩訊號的關係,如SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio)。可以用 Power, 但常用dB來示gain或 decay倍數關係, 如原始訊號被放大一倍, , 用log表示, 則會是說增加了3db
0dBm = 1 mW, 10 dBm = 10 mW, 20 dBm = 100 mW, 30 dBm = 1 W
每增加3db 就是功率增加(gain)一倍x2, 所以功率增加6db就是power x4
每滅少3db 就是功率減少(loss)一倍x0.5, 所以功率減少6db就是power /4
Received Power (dbm) = Transmitted Power (dbm) + Gains (db) − Losses (db)
signal -53dbm, noise -90dbm, SNR= -53-(-90)=37db
一般Wi-Fi 品質叫做好, 那SNR 至少肴 20db (signal是noise旳100倍)
RSSI（Received Signal Strength Indication）是指接收的信號強度指示(in dbm )，用來判定鏈結的品質。
RSSI (Recieved Signal Strength Indicator) is a common name for the signal strength in a wireless network environment. It is a measure of the power level that a RF client device is receiving from an access point, for example. RSSI is the relative signal strength in a wireless environment and can be measured in any unit of power. It is often expressed in decibels (db), or as percentage values between 1-100, and can be either a negative, or a positive value.
The closer the figure is to zero, the better. For example, RSSI of -65 is better than -85. As a general example, a good signal would be -50 dbm, a reasonable would be -75, and a bad one would be -90, while -100 would provide no service at all.
To get a meaniful measurement of a good quality signal, you would have to subtract the noise on the line from that signal power level and consider the difference. A higher difference of signal to noise indicates better signal.
Wi-Fi 發射TX功率,美國 FCC/ 台灣NCC 規範 100mW (20dbm), 通常接收到時的功率只有-50 dbm (因為訊訊在中間傳輸時會loss)
