Description

TIDA-01547 reference design implements a simple mesh network data collector for smart meter Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) networks. The network is an IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN) solution. The data collector implements a complete software stack split across a 32-bit host MCU and a separate Wireless MCU in order to optimize performance and flexibility. Network performance is improved by the TI-15.4 stack which implements IEEE 802.15.4e/g protocols. This stack implements an un-slotted channel hopping (USCH) mode that provides protection against in-band interference.

Features
  • IPv6 networking over low-power RF in the <1GHz ISM bands
  • Data Collector/Edge Router supports up to 200 end-nodes
  • Implements mesh network protocols of 6LoWPAN, RPL, IPv6/ICMPv6 and UDP
  • Implements TI-15.4 stack with frequency hopping and MAC data encryption
  • Adopts layering architecture identical to Wi-SUN FAN v1.0
  • Provides an open-source based working example with a compile-time option to run as data collector (root node) or end-node
