Wireless Zigbee CC1352P Sniffer Bare Board

CC1352P

Is it a bird, is it a plane or a graphics card on the loose? Nope, the CC1352P is a bare board that you can use to build your own Zigbee Gateway. Read the tutorial for creating your own DIY Zigbee Gateway using Zigbee2mqtt, based on either the CC1352P, CC2652R or the smaller CC2531.

The CC1352P is a development board, which means it is larger and a bit more powerful than the other bare boards you can use to build your own Zigbee gateway. The other boards, like the CC2531 are smaller and less expensive. On the other hand the CC1352P can easily handle bigger networks (100+ Zigbee devices) and has a very good range.

Just like the CC2652R, the CC1352P is only available as a dev board, which means it is quite large but also means it has an onboard flasher. The board in question is a bit cheaper but is also quit a bit bigger compared to the CC2652R. The biggest difference is that you can connect an external antenna to the CC1352P in order to increase the range even further.
