It is the next generation of Zigbee chips from Texas Instruments. The main advantage of these chips over CC2530 or CC2531 is the better radio part. It provides better signal strength with lower power consumption. You’ll have great LQI characteristics with these routers. CC2652P or CC1352P2 have a built-in radio amplifier. They beat everything in the world 😊 🔥.

- These boards require a power supply with stable output current (200mA). Double-check cheap Chinese power sources.
- Double-check the distance between pins or pin pads. For example, the EBYTE board has 1.27 mm between pins. It is very hard to solder.
