Paired Sensor/Gateway Demonstration using Anaren Integrated Radio Modules with Texas Instruments SimpliciTI Network Protocol
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.
