In a previous article, I played with an arduino combined with a TI CC1101.

The CC1101 is a great and cheap chip to send datas over the air at frequencies below 1ghz, using different modulations.
You can tweak a great many options which should make this chip work with many other devices.

I had been looking for weeks (months actually…) to use ASK/OOK modulation in order to link it with my chacon temperature/humidity sensors or even with my RFXTRX433 (from RFXCOM).

It seems I finally managed to find the right settings for ASK/OOK : my two devices now talk to each other (@433mhz) using this modulation 🙂

I believe I am still a long way from talking to my chacon or rfxcom devices but still, I made some progress.

Before I forget, here below my settings : it could be helpful for some other geeks out there.

Now if someone out there manage to interface his cc1101 with an ASK/OOK device, please let me know !

I was able to interface a legendary non cc1101 device to my cc1101 kit but the way i did it is through synchronous mode.

But later in my development, i found out that there is a way to do it using the normal packet mode but not quite as straightforward as the synchronous mode (but doable). i remember i posted this in TI forums last year.
