CC2530 ZNP firmware upgradation
I am having cc2530 ZNP. I erased ZNP firmware inside cc2530 while developing programmer for it.
I want to upgrade cc2530 firmware image.
I am having ZStack-CC2530-2.5.0.exe [http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/folders/print/z-stack.html-swrc126e.zip].
When I install this, It make directory "C:\Texas Instruments\ZStack-CC2530-2.5.0\"
I don't have IAR compiler full version so no question of compiling ZNP stack and then using hex file.
There are two hex file at location "C:\Texas Instruments\ZStack-CC2530-2.5.0\Projects\zstack\ZNP\CC253x\bin"
Is it(CC2530ZNP-SB.hex) correct hex file which can used to program cc2530 ZNP default firmware?
What is size of cc2530 ZNP firmware?

Before answering your question, what is your development platform, is it ZNP Mini Kit? or are you using TI CC2530 EM board, and using SPI or UART to communicate with the applicaiion processor?
Thank you for your kind response.
I am having ZStack-CC2530-2.5.0.exe [http://focus.ti.com/docs/toolsw/folders/print/z-stack.html-swrc126e.zip]. firmware of ZSTACK.
I am using cc2530 based Spectec Module.
I am trying to interface my cc2530 module with TI LM3S6965-EK - cortex M3 Evaluation kit. through uart.
As far as I know cc2530ZNP has factory default ZNP firmware loaded on it, But unfortunately I erased this firmware, so I want to reprogram this factory default firmware, so looking for binary file[preferably since i don't have IAR compiler] which can be programmed into cc2530.
I also want to interface this programmed cc2530 with my stellaris microcontroller using uart, so that I can setup network of zigbee.
LM3s6938 <----uart---> cc2530(ZNP).
Using uart, I want check whether my uart interface is working or not.. so basic hello world sort of thing...[e.g. http://processors.wiki.ti.com/images/thumb/a/a2/ZNP-ResetRadio-HT.png/400px-ZNP-ResetRadio-HT.png], So that I can make sure that uart interface is working and I can provide any further command if needed.
You should be able to use the CC2530ZNP-SB.hex.
I have also attached a ZNP image built using the TestHex Project without security, if you have problems using above image try using this one.
Let me know your test results. Thanks
You said CC2530ZNP-SB.hex and also gave one testhex project file CC2530ZNP_2D00_Pro.hex.
But file size of CC2530ZNP-SB.hex which i found in cc2530 ZSTACK is arround 23KB and, file size of CC2530ZNP_2D00_Pro.hex. is more than 400KB.
Do they really have same functionality when programmed in cc2530ZNP or I am getting it wrong?
I am using C:\Texas Instruments\ZStack-CC2530-2.5.0\Projects\zstack\ZNP\CC253x\znp.eww to build ZNP image using IAR full evaluation version. Is it a right project which will generate ZNP image for cc2530?
I also found some hex file for ZNP image in MSP430 ZSTACK kit (C:\Texas Instruments\ZAP-MSP430-2.5.0\Projects\zstack\ZAP\ZNP-HexFiles\)
CC2530ZNP-Pro.hex, CC2530ZNP-Pro-Secure_LinkKeyJoin.hex, CC2530ZNP-Pro-Secure_Standard.hex
Is it a correct hex file which can be programmed in cc2530 and will give me functionality of ZNP?
You can use the hex files included in ZAP-MSP430-2.5.0, they will give you the CC2530ZNP functionality. For understanding features of the different hex files please read the Readme.txt document at C:\Texas Instruments\ZAP-MSP430-2.5.0\Projects\zstack\ZAP\ZNP-HexFiles.
i have the same Mahesh problem , i'm using cc2530 by dtk DRF1605 i flashed the modul with your firmware 7026.CC2530ZNP-Pro.hex .
Now i want to interface this programmed cc2530 to my computer using USB-->uart, so that I can send znp command.
Computer<--USB---> <----uart---> cc2530(ZNP).
How can i test the connection ? is possible to use hyper terminal.
I have the same problem of Mahesh. I bought the CC2530 development kit, and I can't find a cc2530znp.hex file. So, I download the last z-stack version (2.5.1), but the only znp file I found has 23KB. And it doesn't work on my dongle, I can't see it on Windows or Linux.
I try an old version which is comming from the zb4osgi project, a 2.3.1. And I can see my dongle in /dev/ttyACMx.
But how can I have a .hex file in 2.5.1 ? I have to build it with IAR workbench ?
I have to buy another product : ZNP mini kit ?
