Description

This reference design implements a simple RF mesh network end node for smart meter Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) networks. The network is an IPv6 over low-power wireless personal area networks (6LoWPAN) solution. The design implements this network in a single CC1310 SimpleLink™ Wireless MCU to optimize performance and minimize system cost. The complete 6LoWPAN mesh network runs on top of the TI-15.4 stack based on IEEE-802.15.4e/g protocols and implements an un-slotted channel hopping (USCH) mode to provide protection against network interference.

Features
  • IPv6 networking over low-power RF in the <1GHz ISM bands
  • Implements mesh network protocols of 6LoWPAN, RPL, IPv6/ICMPv6 and UDP
  • Implements TI-15.4 stack with IEEE 802.15.4e based frequency hopping and MAC data encryption
  • Software layer architecture identical to Wi-SUN FAN v1.0
  • Fully compatible with TIDA-01547, TIDA-010024 and TIDA-010032 reference designs to provide a complete network solution
  • Supports low-power mode configuration for the battery-powered end nodes
