CC1070: SmartRF Studio 6 not working - tvicport.sys

Part Number: CC1070

It seems the current version, SmartRF Studio 7, doesn't support the CC1070 - I need SmartRF Studio 6.

So I downloaded & installed Setup_SmartRF_Studio_6.13.1.exe

But when I run it and select CC1070, I get:

This is on Win7-Pro, 64-bit.

    We have to look into this. The issue is probably driver to parallel port driver. I get the same error if I try to start SmartRF Studio 6 in my PC.

    I assume that this is related to https://e2e.ti.com/support/wireless-connectivity/sub-1-ghz/f/156/t/876905? Is it possible for us to help you in some way without getting SmartRF Studio 6 up and running? If this is related to the case I referred to I assume that you don't need to find settings for CC1070 as such but more as an input to he code conversion?

    Yes, it is.

    The current code has settings just as a load of  "Magic Numbers" - I just was hoping to use SmartRF Studio 6 to decode them ...

    You can post the numbers and we can see if we can make sense of them in parallel with trying to see how to deal with the SmartRF Studio error message.

    Thanks.

    The numbers are

    { 0x0F, 0xF0, 0x8F, 0x3D, 0x70, 0x23, 0x39, 0x3D, 0x70, 0x23, 0x39, 0x44, 0x03, 0x9B, 0xBA, 0x58,
      0x65, 0x57, 0x31, 0x28, 0x21, 0xB0, 0x07, 0x04, 0x02, 0xAE, 0x7C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 };

    This does seem to include values for the addresses documented as "not used" - again, it's just a load of "Magic Numbers" with no explanation.

    0x3D, 0x70, 0x23 gives  917 MHz

    0x39 sets the datarate to 9.6 kbps

    0x44 is the  VCO register

    0x03 is the modem register.  UART mode is selected

    0x9B set deviation to 4.95 kHz with shaping on.

    The other registers are CC1070 specific and should not be anything you need to take into consideration when porting.
