SMARTRFTM-STUDIO: Default Register Settings

Part Number: SMARTRFTM-STUDIO
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: WI-SUN

Hi team,

Do we have any rationale behind the presets that are in the SmartRF Typical Settings?

Do we have a guide pointing these typical settings to different radio compliance regulations around the world? (EX: FCC compliance)

Thanks,

Jacob

  • Hi Jacob,

    The SmartRF Studio typical settings are the settings that have been tested in our lab across many devices. The settings are optimised for best performance and also to meet the specifications of a given PHY when required (for example, BLE or Wi-SUN).

    Radio compliance regulations can also be a factor, but oftentimes the regulations are more focused on parameters such as output power limitations, spurious emissions, duty cycling restrictions, and phase noise requirements; many of these parameters are listed in the datasheet for a given device along with the PHY this was tested with. These same PHYs are most often the same typical settings in SmartRF Studio unless a change to those settings has been required.

    We don't have a comprehensive guide for this for our Sub-1 GHz products as there are too many factors involved for it to be practical for one document. The datasheet for our devices will list the RF regulations that the device is suitable for being compliant with and the wireless protocols it will support, typically on Page 1, many of which are then found in SmartRF Studio to allow evaluation. There are also multiple App Notes, White Papers, and Selection Guides on the product pages on TI.com giving more details about specific PHYs and what our devices support (in our software stacks, ect.). For example, Section 3 of SWRA714 (Wi-SUN® Software Product Brief v.1.0.0): https://www.ti.com/lit/swra714 gives details of the Wi-SUN PHYs and TI support for them.

    For Bluetooth, the App Note SWRA601 (How to Certify Your Bluetooth Product): https://www.ti.com/lit/swra601 might be what you are looking for.

    Is there a specific question a customer has about a PHY setting (or setttings), or is this a more general question (just in case this does not answer your question)?

    Regards,

    Zack
