SmartRF Studio


ACTIVE 2.0.0   25-FEB-2015  

TI's Standard Terms and Conditions for Evaluation Modules apply.


SmartRF™ Studio is a Windows application that can be used to evaluate and configure Low Power RF-ICs from Texas Instruments. The application will help designers of RF systems to easily evaluate the RF-ICs at an early stage in the design process. It is especially useful for generation of configuration register values, for practical testing of the RF system and for finding optimized external component values. SmartRF Studio can be used either as a standalone application or together with applicable evaluation boards that are shipped in the RF-IC development kits.

SmartRF™ Studio supports all the Low Power RF-ICs from TI. Note that you might need to use an older version of the tool to work with some of the older devices.
