I've written a series of blogs to get started with the SimpleLink CC1310 Sub-1 GHz LaunchPads.

The first blog starts with unboxing and checking the demo application. Then I move step by step towards Sender and Receiver config, debugging both Sender and Receiver at the same time and understanding the functionality.

The series ends with instructions to build a first  Transmitter from scratch.

 

 

I had pointed out in the SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz Wireless Microcontroller RoadTest that 2 modules are required for a meaningful evaluation. I received the two CC1310 SimpleLink LaunchPads from Texas Instruments in return.

The blog series is the write-up of my beginner experience with the devices. I had no prior knowledge.

 

The learning curve:

It took me one month to go from zero experience to building a working radio program. There's loads of knowledge to be gained in the beginning. Now, after that month, I can build a radio Sender or Receiver project in 15 minutes.

So prepare for an intensive first learning ramp-up, and a smooth use once you 'get it'.
