Part Number: BOOSTXL-CC3135
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CC31XXEMUBOOST, CC3135

Hi E2E,

Good day!

Is CC31XXEMUBOOST required when using radio tool with BOOSTXL-CC3135? Or you can just hook a UART to USB adapter to BOOSTXL-CC3135?

Looking forward to your response.

Best Regards,


  • Hi Franz,

    You should be able to use any UART to USB adapter, keeping in mind the hardware signals needed as described in section 11 of the radiotool user's guide:

    Also keep in mind that the CC31XXEMUBOOST will handle the reset of the CC3135 for you automatically, as radiotool is programmed to be able to toggle reset if it detects an XDS110 or FTDI FTF2232D. If you're using another UART to USB solution you will need to either manually toggle reset/nHib when needed, or rebuild radiotool to use a mechanism available in the device you choose.

    Let me know if you need more clarification or have further questions on this topic.
