SimpliciTI™
SimpliciTI™ is a simple low-power RF network protocol aimed at small
RF networks and may be used as a starting point to for your wireless
network. Such 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 or through an
access point or range extenders. Access point and range extenders are
not required but provide extra functionality such as store and forward
messages. With SimpliciTI, the MCU resource requirements are minimal
which results in the low system cost.
SimpliciTI was designed for easy implementation and deployment out-ofthe-box on several TI RF platforms such as the MSP430 family of lowpower MCUs and the CC1xxx/CC25xx transceivers.
The eZ430-RF2500 demo application uses SimpliciTI to demonstrate a
temperature sensor network application that provides a starting point to
develop your wireless applications.
NOTE: For the latest SimpliciTI version and more info, please go to
www.ti.com/simpliciTI

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-BiWire interface.
4) What versions of IAR Embedded Workbench and CCE are
supported?
The eZ430-RF2500 is supported by IAR Embedded Workbench
KickStart Release 4.64 (IAR 3.42F) and Code Composer Essentials
v2.03 (SP3).
5) What are the part numbers for the connectors between the
eZ430-RF USB debugger and the eZ430-RF2500T target board?

Detailed Hardware Install Guide
1. Insert the eZ430-RF2500 CD into a CD drive.
2. Install IAR Embedded Workbench KickStart (R4.64 or newer) included on the CD
or from www.ti.com/msp430.
3. Insert the eZ430-RF2500 into a USB port of your PC.
4. Windows should recognize the new hardware as Texas Instruments MSPFET430UIF (Figure 13). Windows should automatically install the drivers for the
MSP-FET430UIF as a HID tool.
Figure 13. Windows XP Hardware Recognition
5. Windows will recognize another new hardware driver to be installed called
MSP430 Application UART (Figure 14).
