    Kit Overview

     

    The AIR BoosterPack is a low-power wireless transceiver extension module for use with the Texas Instruments MSP-EXP430G2MSP-EXP430G2 and EK-LM4F120XLEK-LM4F120XL LaunchPad development kits. The BoosterPack is available in various configurations, each of which contains an AIR radio module with integrated antenna.  The included AIR BoosterPack software applications demonstrate example sensor networks, as well as providing basic examples for communicating with the radio module.

     

    The A2530R24A-LPZA2530R24A-LPZ is an AIR Module BoosterPack kit for the MSP430TM Value Line or Stellaris LaunchPad Development Kit. This kit eases the development of products intended to wirelessly communicate in compliance with the ZigBee Standard. The BoosterPacks feature an A2530R24AZ1A2530R24AZ1 AIR module (based on TI’s CC2530 low-power-RF chip) and are loaded with the Anaren AIR-ZNP firmware (based on TI’s Z-Stack for the ZigBee Standard).
