This application example demonstrates the basic use of Texas Instruments’ CC2420 ZigBee-ready RF transceiver together with the MSP430F1611 MCU. The example shows how to interconnect the MSP430F1611 and the CC2420 for RF transmission and reception, using a subset of the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol. The software handles MCU configuration, transceiver configuration and basic data flow. The software is an adapted version of the RF Blinking LED software example provided with the CC2420DBK Demonstration Board Kit.
