SimpliciTI is a simple low-power RF network protocol aimed at small RF networks. SimpliciTI was designed for easy implementation and deployment out-of-the-box on several TI RF platforms such as the MSP430 family of low-power MCUs and the CC1XXX/CC25XX/CC430 transceivers and SoCs.
Small RF 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. With SimpliciTI the MCU resource requirements are minimal which results in the low system cost.
The sample applications run out-of-the-box on several hardware platforms:
- SmartRF04 + CC2430EM Development Board
- SmartRF05 + MSP430F2618 + CC2520EM Development Board
- MSP430FG4618/F2013 Experimenter Board with CC1100EM, CC1101EM or CC2500EM
- eZ430-RF2500 Development Tool
- CC430 Wireless Development Tool
- CC1110-CC1111DK and CC2510-CC2511DK
