The CC-6LOWPAN-DK-868 is a complete development kit for a sub-1 GHz 6LoWPAN system. The kit offers a flexible development platform for Sensinode’s NanoStack running on the CC430 and CC1180 devices.
The kit contains two 6LoWPAN network nodes based on CC430F5137, two nodes based on CC1180 + MSP430F5438A and an IPv6 to 6LoWPAN gateway.
The development kit demonstrates an example of a typical sensor network with a simple Network Analyzer software running on the nodes. The nodes are automatically given a unique IPv6 address and can be pinged from a PC using standard tools.
