[Energia Library] Anaren CC110L AIR BoosterPack

Recommended Posts

Two libraries for the Anaren CC110L AIR BoosterPack are available,

They are included into the Energia distribution.

Rei-

Thanks for working with and encouraging Anaren to provide this. I have been testing and have it working on both MSP & Stellaris, including MSP to Stellaris.

 

What data rate/power level did you use to achieve 100 meters?

You're welcome!

I just took the example WirelessTest.ino sketch for ETSI = Europe available at https://github.com/energia/Energia/blob/master/hardware/msp430/libraries/AIR430BoostEuropeETSI/examples/WirelessTest/WirelessTest.ino

Please note the 100 metres range was achieved in open outdoor with no obstacle between the two radios.

Hi;

Extremely noob question I am sure: how to go about getting the AIR library?  When I try to get a zip it gives all the Energia source.  Is it necessary to do a complete build or is there a way just to get the US library?

Thanks again!

I've updated my review of the CC110L AIR BoosterPack.

 

The basic example provides a perfect start for RF with a simple point-to-point connexion.

The CC100L also features more advanced capabilities: multiple modules can form a star network.


For the star network, two sketches are supplied: one sketch for the hub, and another for the sensor. Only the radio number needs to be changed, with one different number for each sensor.

I built and ran my first star network in less than 10 minutes!

Update!

Outdoor tests reach a distance of 100 metres (~330 feet) with no obstacle between the two radios.

I'm going to have to try out the library.  I made a wireless fireworks ignitor last year and was lucky to get ~20 ft out of it (CCS, not Energia) - I'd love to get it working with a larger range this year.

Preparing the 4th of July?

Good Early Morning from The Philippines! It's past 12 midnight here and I just started using the AIR boosterpack with Energia. How can I send custom messages with WirelessMonitorSensor. I tried putting a custom message, such as "Hello World" and failed. Also, how would I send the temperature across?

I'm a brand new energia user and I've downloaded the library for the US version AIR Boosterpack.  Can someone walk me through how to install the library and upload the code. I'm a bit confused by the file structure.  Right now I am thinking I understand CCS much better than this.  Thanks!

Welcome to 43oh! It would be nice if you could open a thread under the Energia forum. This sub-forum is for Energia libraries.
