The CC2530DK development kit supports TI's second generation 2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 compliant System-on-Chip, the CC2530, and contains all hardware, software, and tools necessary to build your 802.15.4-compliant product. The CC2530DK includes CC2530-based evaluation modules, development boards, a USB interface dongle, cables, antennas and documentation to get you up and running with the CC2530 fast. The CC2530EM evaluation modules can be plugged into SmartRF05EB boards, which are included in the Development Kit. The evaluation modules can be used as a reference module for prototyping and for verifying the performance of the CC2530 RF IC. The CC2530 RF SoC enables both consumer and industrial grade applications by offering state-of-the-art selectivity/co-existence, excellent link budget, operation up to 125°C and low voltage operation. The CC2530DK comes with various software examples including the IEEE 802.15.4 compliant TIMAC, ZigBee compliant Z-Stack, proprietary SimpliciTI networking protocol, packet error rate tests, simple link tests, USB firmware libraries and examples for the CC2531.

The SmartRF05EB+CC2530EM or the CC2531USB stick can be utilized as a capture device for the SmartRF Packet Sniffer.


The CC2530DK contains the following:

  • 2 x CC2530EM Evaluation Modules
  • 2 x 2.4 GHz Antennas
  • 2 x SmartRF05EB Evaluation Boards
  • 1 x CC2531 USB Dongle
  • USB cables and documentation

The CC2530DK is supported by the IAR EW8051 C-compiler, which is used with the TIMAC, ZStack, SimpliciTI, and application examples. The C-SPY debugger is used as an emulator interface. Both the C-compiler and the C-SPY debugger are included in the development kit as 30-day evaluation licenses. By registering the compiler with IAR, a 30-day extension of the license can be obtained.
