WiLink™ Wireless Tools for WL18XX modules

ACTIVE v4.0.0.2   27-JAN-2016   Microsoft Windows XP & 7  
Key Document


This package includes the following applications:

  • WLAN Real-Time Tuning Tool (RTTT)
  • Bluetooth® Logger
  • WLAN gLogger
  • Link Quality Monitor (LQM)
  • HCITester Tool
    • BTSout
    • BTSTransform
    • ScriptPad

The applications provide all of the capabilities required to debug and monitor WiLink™ WLAN/Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy firmware with a host, perform RF validation tests, run pretest for Regulatory certification testing, and debug hardware and software platform integration issues.

Wireless Debug and calibration tools for WLAN and Bluetooth require four UART ports. The most efficient way to drive these ports to the PC is to use a UART-to-USB converter. TI recommends using the WL18XXCOM82SDMMC SDMMC-to-COM8 adapter with the TI's WL1837MODCOM8I module or WL1835MODCOM8B module on the COM8 board.
