New platform: Texas Instruments CC26xx #974
Today we announced our new SimpleLink ultra-low power wireless MCU platform CC26xx. This pull adds support for the CC26xx platform to Contiki.
The CC26xx family consist of ultra-low power ARM Cortex-M3 based 2.4-GHz RF devices;
Further more the pull adds two examples applications:
This platform has been tested with nullrdc and ContikiMAC as RDC layer, connecting to Internet via 6LBR running on a BeagleBone Black and CC2531 USB dongle as RF interface.
To use this port, you will need to download and extract CC26xxware sources, as provided by TI. CC26xxware sources are also distributed under the terms of the 3-clause BSD license.
For more information on the platform, please see;
I've been working with this port and kit for a long while now.
The chip itself is made of win. My personal favourites:
In terms of the port itself, the web demo exposes hardware capability very well (as per the OP). MQTT, CoAP, HTTPD in the same image, with the web server exposing pages used to configure everything else: great!
The external dependency on TI's CC26xxware is also welcome:
There have been some discussions about pulling CC26xxware in as a submodule. I still haven't made up my mind on that one, but it's something we may choose to do in the future.
All in all, this is a great addition, one that I've tested thoroughly and that I am aiming to adopt for longer term maintenance
