The CC1200 development kit provides a complete platform for hardware performance testing and software development for TI’s sub-1 GHz CC1200 device. The development kit comes pre-programmed with a packet error rate test for easy out-of-the-box evaluation of the RF performance of the device. RF range and robustness can be tested with different RF settings, and power consumption can be measured easily.
The SimpleLink CC13x0 software development kit provides a comprehensive Sub-1 GHz software package for CC1310 and CC1350 wireless MCUs. The SimpleLink CC13x0 SDK includes the TI 15.4-Stack software, providing an IEEE 802.15.4e/g-based star topology networking solution for Sub-1 GHz band, along with a large set of proprietary RF examples for Sub-1 GHz based on the RF driver through the EasyLink RF abstraction layer.
TI 15.4-Stack is a 802.15.4e/g standard based Star network solution for Sub-1 GHz applications. TI 15.4-Stack software runs on TI’s SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz CC1310 wireless microcontroller (MCU). TI 15.4-Stack offers several key benefits such as longer range in FCC band and better protection against in-band interference by implementing frequency hopping. It also provides customers an accelerated time to market with a complete end-to-end node-to-gateway solution.Learn more
SimpliciTI is a simple low-power RF network protocol aimed at small RF networks. Such networks typically contain battery operated devices which require long battery life, low data rate and low duty cycle and have a limited number of nodes talking directly to each other or through an access point or range extenders. Access point and range extenders are not required but provide extra functionality such as store and forward messages. With SimpliciTI the MCU resource requirements are minimal which results in the low system cost.Learn more
The Wireless MBUS standard (EN 13757-4:2005) specifies communications between water, gas, heat, and electric meters and is becoming widely accepted in Europe for smart metering or Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications. Wireless MBUS is targeted to operate in the 868 MHz band. This band gives a good trade off between RF range and antenna size.Learn more
SmartRF™ Studio is a Windows application that can be used to evaluate and configure most Wireless Connectivity devices from Texas Instruments. The application will help designers of RF systems to easily evaluate the RF-ICs at an early stage in the design process. It is especially useful for generation of configuration register values, for practical testing of the RF system and for finding optimized external component values. SmartRF Studio can be used both as a standalone application or together with applicable evaluation boards that are shipped in the RF-IC development kits.Learn more
The SmartRF™ Flash Programmer can be used to program the flash memory many SimpleLink™ Wireless Networking Solutions devices and for upgrading the firmware and bootloader on the related evaluation boards and debugger (SmartRF Evaluation Boards, CC Debugger, etc.). SmartRF Flash Programmer can also be used for programming the flash memory of TI MSP430 devices via the MSP-FET430UIF and the eZ430 dongle.Learn more
The CC Debugger is a small programmer and debugger for the SimpleLink™ Wireless Networking Solutions.
