The EM34x Full-Feature Remote Evaluation kit provides the hardware and software necessary to demonstrate the
functionality of the Silicon Labs Full Feature Remote Control. Access to software tools required to customize your
own remote control application is also provided.
Kit Use Options
The EM34xx Full Feature Remote Evaluation Kit offers you two ways of using and testing the Full-Feature remote:
Full-Feature Remote Control Demonstration: An out-of-the-box demonstration of the remote’s features,
without further setup. See section 1, Running the Full Feature Remote Control Demonstration, for more
information. Only the remote control, batteries, and USB stick are required for the demonstration.
Custom Application Development: The ability to customize, compile, load, and run your own controller
application, based on Silicon Labs reference designs. See section 2, Custom Application Development, for
more information.
1 Running the Full Feature Remote Control Demonstration
The EM34x Full Feature Remote Evaluation Kit comes with the tools and software needed to test the remote’s
functionality out of the box. The Full Feature Remote comes pre-programmed with an example ZigBee Remote
Control (ZRC) controller application. The USB stick contains an EM3588 chip preprogrammed with an example
ZRC target application designed to show some of the remote’s functionality. Demonstration software allows you to
see packet transfer data from the controller to the target, button presses, and to hear voice recordings transmitted
from the remote.
1. Download the file from the page.
2. Unzip the file to a location of your choice.
3. Install the USB stick driver from the RF4CE_Demo_Release\Windows\Driver\EM358CDCDriverInstaller
folder created in step 2.
4. Plug the USB stick into a port on your computer.
5. Insert the batteries into the remote.
6. Launch the RF4CE_Remote_Demo application from the RF4CE_Demo_Release\Windows directory
created in step 2.

To demonstrate the remote locator functionality:
1. In the demonstration application, click [Find Me]. The remote will beep and the lights will flash for a period
of time. There may be a delay between clicking [Find Me] in the application and the remote
acknowledgement due to the polling time of the remote.
To demonstrate voice functionality:
1. In the demonstration application, make sure the Audio Data drop down is set to [Hardware Codec
2. On the remote, press and hold the [VOICE] button and speak. Release the [VOICE] button when you are
The remote wireless streams your voice to the USB device, where it is processed and stored as a .WAV
file. All .WAV files on the USB device are listed under Audio Data.
3. To hear your recorded audio as it streamed to the target, in the application check [Play Audio Real Time
Over Speakers].
4. To play a file, click the file in the list and click [Play Selected].
5. To clear all files from the USB device, click [Clear Audio].
