CC1310: BER in SmartRF studio

Part Number: CC1310


Can you tell me how is the BER calculated in the SmartRF studio application and what is the length of CRC?

Thank you


  • Hi Brinix,

    The calculation of BER in SmartRF Studio is dependent of the PER (Packet Error Rate) result and the number of bits that have been received.

    The number of bits is calculated from the packet length including the CRC bytes: (<packet length> + <nbr CRC bytes>) * 8

    For CC1310 the number of CRC bytes are normally two. The only exception is for the IEEE.802.15.4g PHY.
    Then it is possible to select either two or four CRC bytes

    Below is a snippet from the code:
    ber = (1 - pow(1 - (per/100), 1.0/nbrOfBits)) * 100;



  • Thanks a lot Øyvind !
