Getting Simpliciti to work on other msp430s
I've been trying to port the Sensor monitor code (for the eZ430-RF2500 development kit) onto a MSP430F247 (my own wireless module) using mspgcc. So far, I have made the necessary low level configuration changes to the software (LEDs and SPI) in the bsp associated files. I then checked that the SPI, LEDs and interrupts worked correctly in Simpliciti on my module. I have even tested my module with my own code and everything works correctly (including the wireless link). However, when I try to utilise the Simpliciti protocol I am not able to link my modules. Would anyone be able to tell me what I should be looking at/changing in the simpliciti library in order to get it to work on my module?
Try to get your transmitter up and running first with your F247 wireless modules. You can verify a transmitter easily by using the TI SimpliciTI packet sniffer for the channel you have selected using our DK HW. At least you can see if you module is transmitting a valid SimpliciTI packet OTA.
Secondly you can setup your module as a receiver, and use SmartRF Studio to transmit SimpliciTI packets for your module to receive. Set a breakpoint in your receive routine where you read out your application data for example
Do this first before you try to establish a link between RF2500 and your F247 module.
