Most alarm and security systems need that kind of frequency in order to work properly, and I think the TI will provide just that. It will be interesting to see whether this new product will do well for the years to come.

Hi, I am Erling Simensen from TI’s low-power RF group. Development kits for the CC112x family (as shown at Embedded World 2011, Nuremberg) will be available on ti.com by the end of June. Pricing for CC1120 will be $2.85 in 1k quantity. A similar device with reduced RF performance and cost is the CC1101 available here: http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/cc1101.html.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
