What exactly is a CC2530 BoosterPack kit? The CC2530 AIR Module BoosterPack kit (Anaren part no: A2530x24A-xxx) is a development tool that enables design engineers to quickly develop wireless applications for ZigBee Standard applications -- using Texas Instruments popular MSP430 or Stellaris ® LaunchPad development kits. Retailing for approximately $99USD each, and ordinarily available through Anaren's authorized AIR module distributors (including Farnell), this BoosterPack kit features Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules based on TI's CC2530 low-cost, low-power RF chip. Running a unique firmware solution (based on TI's Z-Stack), the kit allows the user to quickly set up a basic ZigBee network "out of the box" and then begin developing a custom application, using AIR-ZNP (simple API, 30+ commonly used code examples, etc.)
Contents of each of these 10, free CC2530 BoosterPack kits
Each CC2530 BoosterPack kit includes three A2530E24A AIR Module BoosterPacks, for connection to TI's MSP430 or Stellaris LaunchPad development kits (not included)
  • Each BoosterPack includes an on-board MSP430G2553IN20 Value Line microprocessor, pre-flashed with Anaren's AIR-ZNP firmware (based on TI's Z-Stack for the ZigBee Standard)
  • For Stellaris operation, simply remove the MSP430 MCUs, and load the Stellaris firmware via USB from the included CD
  • CD contains all the software, MSP430 & Stellaris drivers, application notes, Quick Start Guide, and more to get started
  • Includes one 2xAA Battery Holder for remote operation
  • Again, please note:  The MSP430 or Stellaris LaunchPad kit needed for operation of this BoosterPack kit is not included and should be sourced via TI's e-store or one of TI's stocking distributors (including Farnell). More specifically, you will need 3 MSP430 LaunchPad boards or 3 Stellaris LaunchPad boards -- to operate the 3 BoosterPacks included in this kit.
