The CC1125 development kit provides a complete hardware performance testing and software development platform for TI's Sub-1 GHz Performance Line devices and CC1125 specifically. 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 is designed for the 869.2-869.25 MHz frequency band and ETSI Cat 1 compliance. Additional Evaluation Module Kits can be purchased separately to support other frequencies.
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.
