This application note offers the reader a step-by-step method for using Texas Instruments' EZ430-RF2500 demonstration/development kit—together with Anaren's A2500R24A-EZ4x Target Boards and TI's SimpliciTI protocol—to manage a powered-on receiver and battery-operated sleeping transmitter that are "paired" in the field. The transmitter then simulates a sensor input by transmitting 12-bytes at a 16Hz rate to the receiver—and sleeping otherwise. The transmitter is optimized for low power consumption to maximize battery life. The Receiver is normally in a listening mode receiving, messages from the transmitter, checking them for errors, and then moving the information out the UART for demonstration purposes.

What are the advantages of TI's SimpliciTI protocol over other 2.4GHz wireless protocols? Is this one more appropriate for Sports? I ask because of the pictures in the document... actually I remember ANT is being adopted in the cycling competitions, is there an opportunity for a proprietary protocol such as SimpliciTI?
