Time to create our first Radio project. A transmitter. Part 2 and final.     We continue with the project we created in part 1. At the end of this blog, we 'll have our transmitter running. And we'll be able to test it.     Change our Source  We only need to change our main source file (mine is calles aes.c). We'll include the radio API, create variables for our task handle and payload, and the radio task. That's really it. Fairly simple. We borrow the TX code fro ...
Time to create our first Radio project. A transmitter.     We start with the empty project from the previous blog, and use SmartRF Studio to configure our Sender profile.     SmartRF Studio  We've used SmartRF Studio in the second blog post to try out our radios. The application can talk directly to the on-board radio, whatever firmware you've loaded. Super handy to test out different settings and packet sizes. But there's more. SmartRF Studio can also generate in ...
Fast Track for new projects - The Empty RTOS Project Creation Wizard     The TI-RTOS installation comes with 2 kickstarters for new projects. One gives you an empty RTOS shell. The other one pre-loads some drivers and creates 1 example task. We'll check out that second one.     Thanks to the Empty Project wizard, it's not hard to create a startup project for the CC1310. As a result, we get a complete TI-RTOS that's pre-setup for us, with a single task. Because that sing ...
As mentioned at the end of part 2, I've installed Code Composer Studio so that I can upload new code to the development board. following the workshop guide the first step is to generate some code from design studio and import it into CCS. This works fine as long as you don't generate your code into the CCS workstation folder as it will be making a copy of it there. You can then "Debug" the code to compile and upload it. This may take a few moments the first time as there are some libraries to ...
Debug Time !     Let's check how you can debug a conversation between two Sub-1 GHz Radios. We'll use the TI-RTOS simplest example, and place some strategic breakpoints. One on the sender side, just before transmission, when the data packet is prepared. One at receiver side, at the moment that the data is retrieved.       Set up the Sender and Receiver  In the links below you find instructions to get two separate CCS debug sessions running. If you've neve ...
To use the development kit you need to download and install the "CapTIvate™ Design Center" GUI   CapTIvate_Design_Center 1_20_00_01 - TI.com   This allows you to see the outputs from the sensors and design new interfaces. The installation is very straightforward and simply requires you to confirm the license and select and installation directory.   The designer includes the samples mentioned in the getting started tutorials and these in turn contain handy annotations. & ...
MSP CapTIvate™ MCU Development Kit from TI   First impressions of this kit is that it exudes quality. A sturdy cardboard box is lined with high quality foam inserts. Each of the boards is wrapped in an anti-static bag, there are 6 in total. The boards are high quality too with small rubber feet, high spec connectors and a gloss black finish that would not be out of place on a top end stereo.   The boards in the kit are: the main MCU board, a programming adaptor, isolation boa ...
