Arduino micro + CC1101 = radino CC1101

The In-Circuit radino CC1101 combines an Arduino Micro with Microchip's CC1101
in a small form-factor EMC-compliant enclosure. It is part of our family of pin-to-pin compatible radino Modules.
Two modules are available for 433MHz and 868/915MHz.

It's part of the radino-series, which provides full-Arduino-compatible wireless communication devices
in a small form factor, all pin-compatible to each other.


  • Arduino-compatible (Arduino Micro / Leonardo)
  • Texas Instruments CC1101 (Datasheet Texas Instruments)
  • Wide range of possible protocols
  • Available for 433MHz and 868MHz/915MHz (assembly option for BALUN)
  • High sensitivity:
    • -116dBm at 0.6kBaud, 433MHz, 1% packet error rate
    • -112dBm at 1.2kBaud, 868MHz, 1% packet error rate
  • Programmable output power up to +12dBm for all supported frequencies
  • Programmable Datarate from 0.6 to 600kbps
  • 15 GPIOS (5 PWM, 5 Analog IN)
  • I²C, SPI, UART
  • USB (HID Keyboard & Mouse, virtual UART)
  • High-Performance, Low-Power Microcontroller ATmega32U4
  • Arduino Demo Applications available in our Library!

Working with Arduino IDE

The core of radino is an Arduino Micro, so the programming is as easy as programming an Arduino Micro.
For the Arduino IDE Boards Manager follow URL is required:


Visit radino/radino32 software for more information about the Arduino IDE and installation.

For detailed information about our library for the Arduino IDE look at the radino Library documentation.

Common problems regarding radino modules and the Arduino system: Common problems

The Arduino IDE required follow includes for using the radino CC1101.

#include <SPI.h>
#include <IC_CC1101.h>
#include <IC_CC1101_Bridge.h>

If you don´t want to use the Ardunio IDE, you can flash an existing .hex file with avrdude. For more informations see: Upload binary on radino
