TI unveils sub-1 GHz wireless connectivity for ultra-low-power MSP430 LaunchPad development kit

Texas Instruments has launched a sub-1 GHz radio
frequency value line plug-in-board for TI’s MSP430 microcontroller LaunchPad
development kit.

The new 430BOOST-CC110L RF BoosterPack includes
ETSI-compliant and FCC-certified modules to help speed development time, reduce
certification costs and eliminate barriers associated with the RF hardware
design process.

The RF BoosterPack and MSP430 LaunchPad offer developers
affordable solutions for cost-sensitive sub-1 GHz RF applications such as
remote controls, toys, home and building automation, and security systems. The
430BOOST-CC110L is available today for $19, and the MSP430 LaunchPad is
separately available for $4.30.

“We are excited to bring wireless connectivity to
the more than 100,000 MSP430 LaunchPads in the market today, and  provide
a simple, cost-effective  development platform for those looking to
innovate wireless products with MSP430 microcontrollers,” said Erling
Simensen, product marketing manager, Low-Power RF, TI.

The RF module included on the RF BoosterPack is
separately available as an ETSI-compliant and FCC-certified production-ready
module. The A110LR09A RF module is available from TI third party developer
Anaren, and can be tested using the 430BOOST-CC110L development tool.
