TI promises faster ZigBee development with BoosterPack

Texas Instruments has unveiled a new ZigBee BoosterPack based on TI’s CC2530 ZigBee system-on-chip that helps developers to jump-start their designs.

The BoosterPack comes with the hardware and software needed for ZigBee development to quickly bring-up the ZigBee modem, create a network and send and receive packets.

Developed, offered and supported by Anaren, the ZigBee BoosterPack (A2530E24A-LPZ) works with the MSP430 and Stellaris LaunchPad evaluation kits providing developers with more microcontroller (MCU) choices when adding ZigBee wireless connectivity to home gateway, smart meter, and lighting control applications.

To speed time to market of new 802.15.4 ZigBee designs, the BoosterPack comes with:

  • Three ZigBee BoosterPacks based on the Anaren AIR module A2530E24A for connection to the MSP430 or Stellaris LaunchPad evaluation kit (LaunchPad sold separately)

  • Each BoosterPack includes an on-board MSP430G2553IN20 Value Line MCU, pre-flashed with Anaren's AIR-ZNP firmware (based on TI's Z-Stack ZigBee stack)

  • For Stellaris MCU operation, simply remove the MSP430 MCU, and load the Stellaris firmware via USB from the included CD
