Sample applications on CC2531 USB dongle just read the data from USB and send it via Zigbee
I am new with CC2531 USB dongle and want to get started very quickly.
Are there any sample applications on that dongle just to read the data from USB and send it to another device via Zigbee?
The sample application called 'SerialApp' receives data over a serial port on one PC, transmits it via ZigBee RF to another PC (or another COM port on the same PC):
Compile SerialApp for the CC2531 USB dongle - the HAL UART abstraction for the CC2531 will implement the USB CDC class and the CC2531 will appear on the PC as a COM port.
Thank you for your advice.
But for that sample application, we need the help of the SmartRF05 Evaluation Board for the serial port connections, don't we? Can I just plug the CC2531 USB dongle into a PC (without the SmartRF05EB) then let it send and receive data from both the USB and the Zigbee RF? Is there a similar application available for that?
Yes - that is what I had hoped to explain in my first response to you - when you build the SerialApp for the CC2531 target and you plug the CC2531 USB dongle directly into the Windows PC, you will see the CC2531 enumerate with the Windows host as a CDC device and appear as a COM port.
Fantastic!! I will try it. Thank you very much!
