The chip also has poor timing control of the radio… it’s hard to start a transmission with microsecond control like you can with some TI radios. So it isn’t exactly suitable for a protocol with tight timing control.
Thanks for pointing that chip out.
The CC1310 MCU+radio seems great for longer range with 40kbps data throughput, and has a relatively short lock time for changing
frequencies, so hopping modes should be efficient power wise. Some mention of porting CC1310 has been made here.
Any more progress running riot-os on CC1310?
