The development kit is designed to help the user to achieve his/hers objectives as quickly as possible.
Evaluate the CC2510Fx and CC2511Fx. Right out of the box, the user can do range testing (PER testing) and transfer data from one PC to another using the development kit. This enables the user to quickly find out how well the CC2510Fx/CC2511Fx fit the intended application. A number of demonstration applications serve to highlight the innovative features of the SmartRF®04 ICs.
Perform RF measurements. Using SmartRF® Studio, the user can configure the radio ICs with parameters that suit the intended application and easily measure sensitivity output power and other RF parameters.
Develop a prototype. By programming the CC2510Fx/CC2511Fx and utilizing the various peripherals included on the Evaluation Board, the user can easily make a prototype of the intended application. All signals are brought out on 0.1 pin-row connectors so easy connection of other required circuitry is possible. These connectors are also compatible with Agilent logic analyzer probes for easy debugging.
A CC2511F32-based dongle is included to prototype USB-based applications.
A complete development kit containing:
- 2 SmartRF®04 evaluation boards
- 2 CC2510EM evaluation modules
- 1 CC2511EM USB dongle
- Technical documentation and the SmartRF®Studio software can be downloaded from the web. The SmartRF®04 evaluation boards connect to a PC via USB, and can also operate stand-alone.
- IAR EW8051 C-compiler with C-SPY debugger (30+30 days evaluation license.)
The CC2510-CC2511DK is supported by the IAR EW8051 C-compiler, which is used with the MAC and application examples. The C-SPY debugger is used as emulator interface. Both the C-compiler and the C-SPY debugger are included in the development kit as 30-days evaluation licenses. By registrering the compiler with IAR, a 30-day extension of the license will be given.
