Description

The CC2538 development kit provides a complete hardware performance test platform and generic software development environment for the ARM Cortex M3-based, IEEE 802.15.4 compliant CC2538 system-on-chip from Texas Instruments. The kit includes two CC2538 RF evaluation modules (CC2538EM), two general purpose development boards (SmartRF06EB) for software and hardware prototyping, one CC2531 USB dongle for packet sniffing, cables, and documentation to get you up and running with the CC2538 quickly and easily.

The CC2538 evaluation modules can be used as reference modules for prototyping and for verifying the performance of the CC2538 RF IC. In combination with SmartRF06EB and SmartRF Studio, you have a complete set of tools for measuring RF parameters and more generally evaluate the RF performance of the chip. SmartRF Studio can generate register values and set up the radio to send and receive packets, set up a continuous wave signal and read the received signal strength (RSSI).

The SmartRF06EB has integrated the XDS100v3 debug probe, so no additional hardware tools are required for debugging of software running on the devices. The debug probe is compatible with Code Composer Studio and IAR Embedded Workbench. Other JTAG probes that support ARM Cortex M3 devices, like JLink from Segger and I-jet from IAR, can also be used to download and debug software on the CC2538.

The CC2538EM boards come pre-programmed with a Packet Error Rate test, which can be used for practical range testing of the radio. Texas Instruments' ZigBee stack (Z-Stack) is of course also available for the kit.
