SimpliciTI™ Network Protocol
The SimpliciTI network protocol is a proprietary, low-power radiofrequency (RF) protocol targeting simple, small RF networks (<100
nodes). The SimpliciTI network protocol is designed for easy
implementation with minimal microcontroller resource requirements. The
protocol runs out of the box on TI’s MSP430 ultra-low-power
microcontrollers and multiple RF transceivers.
Small low-power RF networks typically contain battery-operated devices,
which require long battery life, low data rate, and low duty cycle, and have
a limited number of nodes talking directly to each other. With the
SimpliciTI network protocol, MCU resource requirements are minimal,
resulting in lower system cost for low-power RF networks. More complex
mesh networks that need routing typically require 10× the program
memory and RAM to implement.
Despite the modest resources required, SimpliciTI network protocol
supports End Devices in a peer-to-peer network topology, the option to
use an Access Point to store and forward messages, and Range
Extenders to extend the range of the network up to four hops. Future
releases will add more sophisticated features such as frequency agility,
an ETSI-compliant listen-before-talk discipline, and a software security
routine for message encryption.
The SimpliciTI network protocol supports a wide range of low-power
applications including alarm and security (smoke detectors, glass
breakage detectors, carbon monoxide sensors, and light sensors),
automated meter reading (gas meters and water meters), home
automation (appliances, garage door openers, and environmental
devices), and active RFID.
The SimpliciTI network protocol is provided as source code under a free
license without royalties.
Developers are encouraged to adapt the protocol to their own specific
application needs. For information on compatibility, updates, and the
latest version of the SimpliciTI protocol, visit www.ti.com/simpliciti.
The eZ430-RF2500 demonstration application uses the SimpliciTI
protocol to demonstrate a temperature sensor network application that
provides a starting point to develop a wireless applications.
10.
Demo – eZ430-RF2500 Sensor Monitor
eZ430-RF2500 is preloaded with a wireless temperature sensor network
firmware and may be reprogrammed at any time. This network consists
of an Access Point that measures its own temperature and also
wirelessly receives temperature measurements from End Devices. End
Devices measure their temperature once per second and then enter a
low-power mode to reduce battery usage. The Access Point transmits all
measured data to the PC through the UART backchannel. The included
PC Sensor Monitor Visualizer provides a demonstration of the
eZ430-RF2500 using the SimpliciTI protocol across a star network. In the
PC Sensor Monitor Visualizer, the center node is the Access Point and
the attached bubbles are the End Devices. The PC application displays
eZ430-RF2500 Development Tool

the temperature of both the End Devices and Access Point. Additionally,
the PC application is capable of simulating distance from its access point
when the End Devices are moved. The number of End Devices can be
expanded by adding more target boards in the star network as seen in
Figure 6.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1) Does the eZ430-RF2500 support fuse blow?
The eZ430-RF USB debugging interface lacks the JTAG security
fuse-blow capability. To ensure firmware security on devices going to
production, the USB Flash Emulation Tool or the Gang Programmer,
which include the fuse-blow feature, are recommended.
2) What is the voltage supplied to the eZ430-RF2500T target board
from the debugging interface?
The eZ430-RF USB debugging interface supplies a regulated 3.6 V
to the eZ430-RF2500T target board.
3) Can other programming tools interface to the eZ430-RF2500T
target board?
The eZ430-RF2500T target board works with any programming tool
supporting the 2-wire Spy-Bi-Wire interface. Both the MSP430 USB
FET (MSP-FET430UIF) and the Gang Programmer (MSPGANG430) support these devices. See MSP-FET430 Flash
Emulation Tool User’s Guide (SLAU138) for details on using MSP430
USB FET and the Gang Programmer for a 2-wire Spy-Bi-Wire
interface.
4) What versions of IAR Embedded Workbench and Code
Composer Essentials are supported?
The eZ430-RF2500 hardware is supported by IAR Embedded
Workbench KickStart Release 4.64 (IAR 3.42F) and Code Composer
Essentials v2.03 (SP3) or higher.
At the time of print, CCE is currently not supported by the SimpliciTI
protocol or the Sensor Monitor Demo. Please check the TI web site
for updates.
5) What are the part numbers for the connectors between the
eZ430-RF USB debugger and the eZ430-RF2500T target board?

7) I am not able to select the MSP430 Application UART, cannot
receive data, or the demo app doesn’t appear to change.
Ensure that the Application UART driver is correctly installed. This is
done by either running the installer for the Sensor Monitor Visualizer
or IAR KickStart 3.42F or higher and following the directions in
Section 14.
To determine if the driver is correctly installed:
1. Plug in the eZ430-RF USB debugging interface
2. Right click My Computer and select Properties.
3. Select the Hardware tab and click on Device Manager.
4. Under Ports (COM & LPT) should be an entry for “MSP430
Application UART (COM xx)”.
If the entry is there, but no characters are received, restart the PC.
If the Application UART is not listed, please install the driver by
following the instructions in Section 14: Detailed Hardware
Installation Guide.
8) When trying to compiler the Sensor Monitor Demo project in
IAR, I receive the following error:
Error[e117]: Incompatible runtime models. Module ISR specifies
that '__rt_version' must be '3', but module LHAL_GDOxHandlers
has the value '2'
Please use the latest version of the demo source code off the web
(http://www.ti.com/lit/zip/slac139) and use IAR KickStart 4.x.
Early versions of the demo code included a precompiled version of
the SimpliciTI library for IAR 3.x. IAR 4.x changes the calling
conventions, which returns Error[e117] when trying to build libraries
for an older version of the compiler.
9) What kind of range should I expect to get with the eZ430RF2500?
Based on practical rage testing with one node connected to a PC
and the other node connected to the battery board, we have
measured indoor line-of-sight range of more than 50 meters. This
range can be significantly affected by the orientation of the boards
and the environment. Note that the eZ430-RF2500 target board was
designed to optimize for factor and does not focus on maximizing RF
range. Please visit the TI website for additional reference designs
and antenna options.
10) Why is my battery board different than in the documentation?
Since introduction, the eZ430RF-2500 battery board was slightly
modified. The connections and function remain the same.

FCC WARNING
This evaluation board/kit is intended for use for ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT, DEMONSTRATION, OR EVALUATION
PURPOSES ONLY and is not considered by TI to be a finished end-product fit for general consumer use. It generates, uses, and
can radiate radio frequency energy and has not been tested for compliance with the limits of computing devices pursuant to part
15 of FCC rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against radio frequency interference. Operation of this
equipment in other environments may cause interference with radio communications, in which case the user at his own expense
will be required to take whatever measures may be required to correct this interference.
EVM WARNINGS AND RESTRICTIONS
It is important to operate this EVM within the input voltage range of 1.8 V to 3.6 V and the output voltage range of 1.8 V to 3.6 V.
Exceeding the specified input range may cause unexpected operation and/or irreversible damage to the EVM. If there are
questions concerning the input range, please contact a TI field representative prior to connecting the input power.
Applying loads outside of the specified output range may result in unintended operation and/or possible permanent damage to
the EVM. Please consult the EVM User's Guide prior to connecting any load to the EVM output. If there is uncertainty as to the
load specification, please contact a TI field representative.
During normal operation, some circuit components may have case temperatures greater than 60°C. The EVM is designed to
operate properly with certain components above 60°C as long as the input and output ranges are maintained. These components
include but are not limited to linear regulators, switching transistors, pass transistors, and current sense resistors. These types of
devices can be identified using the EVM schematic located in the EVM User's Guide. When placing measurement probes near
these devices during operation, please be aware that these devices may be very warm to the touch.
