TIDA-01476: TI Designs: TIDA-01476 : Query on WiFi networking of TI design

Part Number: TIDA-01476

Hello Support Team,

Refer the TI design TIDA-01476. It is based on RF networking.

Is it possible to use this design via WiFi networking? I have a WiFi modem. I wanted to access this design on my WiFi network and put the data on cloud so that i can get notifications without any location constraint for the user.

If yes, is there any documentation available for this?

Kindly support.

Thanks.

  • Hi,

    The simplest way to connect that TI design to the cloud is using a Wi-Fi to Sub-1 Ghz gateway. There is an example of a gateway in the SimpleLink 15.4 stack plugin:
    www.ti.com/.../SIMPLELINK-SDK-TI-15-4-STACK-PLUGIN

    In that plugin there is a "ti_154_gateway_ibm" example. That example is designed to connect a sensor running the TI 15.4 stack to the cloud. The TI design that you reference is a 15.4 sensor, and will connect to the gateway example with very little modification. There is this detailed walkthrough on how to get that example setup on SimpleLink Academy:
    dev.ti.com/.../node

    Following the walkthough, you should be able to connect up a sub-1 Ghz sensor to the cloud and see data on a cloud interface. From there, you can replace the CC1310 Launchpad 'sensor' with that TI design and have the functionality you are looking for.

    Let me know if you need more clarification, or have further questions on this topic.

    Regards,

    Hello Michael,

    Thanks for the response. Does this mean that the TI design TIDA-01476  can directly connect to cloud if the TI 15.4 Stack plug-in for the SimpleLink™ MCU SDK is used? And there is no need of additional hardware / gateway?

    If additional hardware / gateway is required, could you please suggest which one to use in this application?

    Also, will it connect to other cloud platforms than IBM?

    Please suggest.

    Regards,

    Hi Ajinkya,

    The TI 15.4 Stack plugin needs to run on hardware that will act as a gateway. The specific hardware needed is a CC3220 launchpad + a CC1310 launchpad. Other sub-1 radios from the CC13xx family could probably be used, with some adaptation.

    Once you have the gateway running, then connecting the TIDA-01476 to the cloud should be simple. There may need to be some changes in the CC3220 gateway code to get the precise data from the TIDA-01476 formatted correctly, but otherwise it should connect to the gateway with very little modification of the code.

    By default, the only cloud platform supported is IBM. However, the code is fairly modular and so it is possible to remove the IBM code and replace it with code that communicates with other cloud platforms as needed.

    Regards,
    Michael
