The CC1200 development kit provides a complete platform for hardware performance testing and software development for TI's sub-1 GHz CC1200 device. The development kit comes pre-programmed with a packet error rate test for easy out-of-the-box evaluation of the RF performance of the device. RF range and robustness can be tested with different RF settings, and power consumption can be measured easily. This kit supports the frequency range from 868 to 930 MHz. Additional plug-in boards (EMK) 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.
