Note: If you experience connectivity issues with the out-of-box user experience demo, please download the software and re-program your boards with the updated user experience firmware.

The MSP-EXPCC430RFx Experimenter Kit is a complete sub-GHz development platform for the CC430 devices from the MSP430™ family of ultra-low-power microcontrollers. The kit provides two sub-GHz wireless modules: the MSP-EXP430F6137Rx Base Board with the CC430F6137, and the MSP-EXP430F5137Rx Satellite Board with the CC430F5137.

Out of the box, the two modules enable demonstration of a SimpliciTI™ wireless sensor network and take full advantage of a highly-integrated LCD and PC connection. Additionally, the kit also enables a complete development and prototyping environment to design a wireless application. The kit features an on-board emulator for programming and debugging, which enables developers to create new applications on both the Base Board and Satellite Board.
