I'd really like to add the CC2590 to my CC2540 design and I see all the reference materials in the reference design http://www.ti.com/tool/tidc-bluetooth-low-energy-long-range sp_rid_pod4=MTE1NzI2OTgxOTA4S0&sp_mid_pod4=47596183&spMailingID=47596183&spUserID=MTE1NzI2OTgxOTA4S0&spJobID=582078867&spReportId=NTgyMDc4ODY3S0
but I need it in an Eagle format. Anybody have a Cadstar to Eagle translator that would be kind enough to translate the PCB files and post them here? Of course I'd rather not do it by hand due to the complications of the antenna.

We do not have this design in Eagle format. However, you can use this design as a starting point: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/CC2541_Breakout_Board
You will have to make a symbol for the CC2590 yourself, but that is quite easy in Eagle.
For the antennas you can follow the dimensions in the app notes AN043 and DN007:

Thanks as always for your help. I've converted the Cadstar file to Eagle. I need to add a status LED, a switch, and the TPS62730 for killer low power / long range operation. I'll let you know how/if it works.
In reply to PATRICK OHARA:
If you are still on the first steps of your design, I suggest you to try the TPS62740 instead of the TPS62730. It's the newest design with 360nA quiescent current, you can keep the converter on instead of switching it for low power or long range operations, it is optimized for ultra low power radio and rf friendly.
In reply to Amjad EL HILALI:
The TPS62740 looks like a great choice for the CC2540 & CC2590. Is there a TI library file (.lbr) for the TPS62740? I'd like to include this in the design.
I meant to ask about "eagle" library files for the TPS62740.
Also, I downloaded the CadStar viewer to review the design and confirm my Eagle translation. Unfortunately the CadStar viewer shows the layer thickness as zero. Can someone please load the reference design swrr116 into CadStar and tell me what the layer thickness need to be? Of course this will be critical for correct transmission line function.
