EZ430-RF256x Bluetooth Evaluation Tool


A complete TI Bluetooth® evaluation and demonstration tool for the MSP430 and TI's Bluetooth

Texas Instruments' eZ430-RF256x is a complete TI Bluetooth® evaluation and demonstration tool for the MSP430 and TI's Bluetooth that includes all the necessary hardware and software in a convenient USB stick. The tool includes a USB-powered emulator to program and debug your application and two Bluetooth target boards featuring the highly-integrated MSP430BT5190 ultra-low-power MCU and Panasonic PAN1323 module.

The required embedded software comes pre-flashed on the MSP430 device for ease-of-use out of the box. The tool also comes with a sample PC game that you can play using the target board as a remote controller. Users may download the eZ430-RF256x Software Development Kit (SDK) to develop and instantly demonstrate Bluetooth applications using the included battery expansion board and AAA batteries. The eZ430-RF256x SDK includes MindTree's Ethermind Bluetooth stack, Serial Port Profile (SPP), and embedded sample applications running on FreeRTOS.
