Free Evaluation Tool Description

TIMAC is an IEEE 802.15.4 Medium Access Control software stack for TI IEEE 802.15.4 transceivers and System-on-Chips.

You can use TIMAC when you:

  • Need a wireless point-to-point or point-to-multipoint solution (e.g. multiple sensors reporting directly to a master
  • Need a standardized wireless protocol
  • Have battery powered and/or mains powered nodes
  • Need support for acknowledgement and retransmission
  • Have low data rate requirements (Around 100 kbps effective data rate)
