This paper describes how to create a ZigBee Smart Energy Device using the MSP430F54xx as the host application processor to the CC2530-ZNP (ZigBee Pro Network Processor). The physical interface between the MSP430 and the CC2530-ZNP is discussed, as well as the software application framework used to drive the CC2530-ZNP. This paper assumes that the reader is familiar with basic ZigBee concepts and terminology.
