The purpose of this design note is to show how to interface the CC1100 /CC2500 EM with the MSP430F1xx/41x family. An example shows the interconnection between the CC1100/CC2500 transceiver and the MSP430F169. The simple protocol is adapted from the TI software libraries. The software handles the transceiver configuration, the MCU configuration, and a basic RF communication protocol. The hardware consists of an MSP-FET430 Development Tool from Texas Instruments equipped with an MSP430F169 MCU. The kit can be connected to the CC1100/CC2500 hosted on the SmartRF®04EB from Chipcon/Texas Instruments. An auxiliary node must be used to implement and test the RF protocol. The software, which is available from the TI web pages, is compatible with the IAR C/C++ compiler and the MSP-GCC compiler from GNU. Any device within the MSP430 family can be used with this library due to hardware abstraction. Similarly, any SPI capable interface module within the MSP430 family is supported by the library.
