CC3135MOD: CC3135MOD Maximum power consumption Settings

Part Number: CC3135MOD
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CC3135, CC3235SF

Dear Team,

We now need to put the CC3135MOD in the emitting state of maximum power consumption for thermal testing,

how to configure the maximum power consumption as shown below through firmware,

Which registers need to be configured, how to configure, please help give detailed instructions

must use the Radio Tool to configure the CC3135MOD to its maximum power consumption?

  • Hey Song,

    I have assigned this to one of our HW experts. Radio tool is likely the best method for this. Check out this user guide on it and let us know if you have any questions.

  • Hi,

    Maximum peak current consumption for CC3135 device is during device calibration (420mA @ 3.6 V). This current consumption is mainly related to proper design of power source not a thermal dissipation as you want to measure.

    You have two options:

    • you can use Radio tool as was suggested by Dylan
    • you can implement activation of TX radio into your host code (for more details see files radiotool.c/.h inside \Source Files\Source Projects\radiotool_CC3235SF_LAUNCHXL_tirtos_ccs\) That code is for CC3235 device, but sl_ API commands for CC3135 radio tools are same. Source code you will find at radio tool package CC3XXXRADIOTEST.
