Smart RF Transceivers – Tools & Software

Kits and evaluation modules

Wireless Connectivity kits and evaluation modules consist of an array of boards ranging from demo and application-specific hardware to full-feature development kits for hardware performance testing and software development.

CC110L RF LaunchPad BoosterPack

Low-power wireless transceiver extension kit for use with the MSP-EXP430G2. Based on TI’s CC110L, the onboard radio module with antenna operates in the European 868-870MHz and US 902-928MHz ISM bands. Software demonstrates example sensor network and work status reporting.

Sub-1 GHz Performance Line Development Kit

The development kit provides a complete hardware performance testing and software development platform for Sub-1 GHz performance line devices. A pre-programmed packet error rate test included. RF range and robustness can be tested with different RF settings, and easily measure power consumption.

CC1125 Development Kit

The development kit provides a complete hardware performance testing and software development platform for Sub-1 GHz performance line devices and CC1125 specifically.

Sub-1 GHz CC1200 Development Kit

The development kit provides a complete platform for hardware performance testing and software development for TI’s sub-1 GHz CC1200 device. Pre-programmed with a packet error rate test for out-of-the-box evaluation of the device RF performance. 

CC2510/CC2511 Development Kit

The CC2510Fx/11Fx development kits allows the user to do range testing and transfer data from one PC to another right out of the box. This enables the user to quickly find out how well the CC2510Fx/CC2511Fx fit the intended application.

CC256x Bluetooth® / Dual-Mode Evaluation Module

The CC256x Bluetooth solution can support Bluetooth classic amd Bluetooth low energy or ANT. The CC256x QFN EM board is intended for evaluation purpose and works with TI’s hardware development kit such as MSP-EXP430F5529 and the MSP-EXP430F5438.

Bluetooth and MSP430 Audio Sink Reference Design

The Bluetooth + MSP430 Audio sink reference design can be used to create a variety of applications for low end, low power audio solutions. Application possibilities include toys, low end Bluetooth speakers, audio streaming accessories.

Software

Wireless network stacks, peripheral and driver libraries and software application examples that simplify designing wireless applications.

IEEE802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) Software Stack

TIMAC is the Texas Instruments IEEE802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) software stack and is available for multiple platforms and enables easy application development and easy porting.

SimpliciTI™ Network Protocol

A low-power RF network protocol aimed at small RF networks. Such networks typically contain battery operated devices which require long battery life, low data rate and low duty cycle and have a limited number of nodes talking directly to each other or through an access point or range extenders.

  • Access point and range extenders are not required but provide extra functionality such as store and forward messages.

Wireless M-Bus Protocol Software

he Wireless MBUS standard (EN 13757-4:2005) specifies communications between water, gas, heat, and electric meters and is becoming widely accepted in Europe for smart metering or Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications. 

Bluetooth® Low Energy Software Stack and Tools

Bluetooth® low energy BLE-Stack™ software stack for the CC2540 and CC2541 devices includes all necessary software to get started on the development of single-mode Bluetooth Low Energy applications.

Stonestreet One Bluetooth® and Dual-mode Stacks

This Bluetooth software solution is licensed from partner Stonestreet One. The Bluetopia®+LE SDKis comprised of Single Mode and Dual Mode offering implementing the Bluetooth 4.0 specification.

Development tools

Get started with your programming using these development tools for RF testing, configuration and code generation.

SmartRF™ Studio

SmartRF Studio is a Windows application that can be used to evaluate and configure most TI wireless connectivity devices. The application helps designers of RF systems to easily evaluate the RF-ICs at an early stage in the design process.

SmartRF™ Flash Programmer

The SmartRF Flash Programmer can be used to program the flash memory many SimpleLink wireless networking solutions devices and for upgrading the firmware and bootloader on the related evaluation boards and debugger (SmartRF Evaluation Boards, CC Debugger, etc.).

Debugger and Programmer for SimpleLink™ Solutions

The CC Debugger is a small programmer and debugger for the SimpleLink wireless networking solutions. Can be used together with IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051 (version 7.51A or later) for debugging and SmartRF Flash Programmer for flash programming.

CC256x Bluetooth® Hardware Evaluation Tool

The CC256x Bluetooth hardware evaluation tool provides evaluation of TI's Bluetooth chips. More specifically, it is used to configure the BT chip's properties through the Service Pack (SP) and also allows RF performance testing .
