General Description
A8153 is a high performance and low cost 2.4GHz ISM band DSSS system-on-chip (SoC) wireless transceiver. This device integrates high speed pipeline 8051 MCU, 32KBytes In-system programmable flash memory, 256Bytes internal data RAM, 2KBytes external data RAM, various powerful functions and excellent performance of a leading IEEE 802.15.4 DSSS RF transceiver. A8153 has various operating modes, making it highly suited for systems where ultra-low power consumption is required.

A8153 provides Zigbee RF4CE remote-control solution with AMICCOM BEERU stack. It is easy to implement the target side of a remote-control system with UART interface. Complete reference design and example software of BEERU help user design a remote control system quickly.
