Performance Line Development Kit


Order now


The CC1120 development kit provides a complete hardware performance testing and software development platform for TI's Sub-1 GHz Performance Line devices. The development kit comes with a pre-programmed packet error rate test. RF range and robustness can be tested with different RF settings, and power consumption can be measured easily. This kit supports 868MHz and 915MHz.

The kit includes the SmartRF Transceiver Evaluation board (TrxEB), which has a number of useful features for development of prototype software, as well as USB connectivity making it possible to connect the board to a PC and control the radio from SmartRF Studio. In short, the TrxEB includes

  • MSP430F5438 MCU
  • USB interface
  • 128 x 64 dot matrix LCD
  • 3 axis digital accelerometer
  • Ambient light sensor

The software examples provided with the kit can be used as a basis for working with the Transceiver Evaluation Board and the connected radio.

Kit contents:
  • 2 x SmartRF Transceiver EB (TrxEB)
  • 2 x CC1120EM 868/915 MHz
  • 2 x Pulse Antennas
  • 1 x MSP430 Debug Probe (FET)
  • 2 x Micro USB Cables
  • 1 x Standard USB Cable
  • 1 x 14-pin Flat Cable
  • 4 x 1.5 Volt AA Batteries
