CC2511 Dongle

1 Introduction

Thank you for purchasing a SmartRF®04DK Development Kit.

Please note that Chipcon uses the term SmartRF®04DK as a collective term for all development kits on the SmartRF®04 platform. This development platform supports evaluation, development and prototyping using the SmartRF®04 products from Chipcon.

Make sure to subscribe to Chipcon’s Developer’s Newsletter to receive information about updates to documentation, new product releases and more. Sign up on the Chipcon web site.

2 About this manual

This manual covers the CC2511 Dongle, found in the CC2510–CC2511DK.It covers both the CC2511 Dongle hardware and software components of the development kit.

It covers the use of CC2511 application examples.

The CC2510EM and CC2510 application examples are covered in a separate document. SmartRF® Studio has its own user manual.

The Chipcon Packet Sniffer has its own user manual. The Chipcon Flash Programmer has its own user manual.

Further background information can be found in the device datasheets.

4 Connecting CC2511 Dongle to SmartRF04EB.

Please see the “CC2430DK_CC2510_CC1110_User_Manual” for more information on the SmartRF04EB and how to use the CC2510EM.

Make sure to install SmartRF® Studiobefore connecting the SmartRF04EB to a PC. SmartRF® Studio can be downloaded from thewww.chipcon.com orwww.ti.com/lpw

The CC2511 have a 2 wire debug interface that is used for chip programming and debugging. When connecting this interface to the SmartRF04EB USB MCU, the CC2511 can be programmed from the Chipcon Flash Programmer software and debugged from IAR embedded workbench..To connect the CC2511 Dongle to the SmartRF04EB follow these 6 steps:

1.Turn off the SmartRF04EB power by moving the power switch to the left position. See Figure 3.

2.Remove any CCxxxxEM modules attached to the SmarRF04EB.

3.Connect the SmartRF04EB to a PC with the supplied USB cable.

4.Connect the CC2511 Dongle to the SmartRF04EB with the supplied 10 pin cable.

The cable should be mounted between the “SoC debug” connector on the CC2511 Dongle and the “P14 SoC debug / flash” connector on the SmartRF04EB. Make sure pin 1 is connected to pin 1. This cable connects the debug interface and GND between the two devices, however the CC2511 Dongle is not powered trough this cable.

5. Power the CC2511 Dongle.

To power the CC2511 Dongle there are two options:

Powered with a USB cable.

Using the supplied USB extension cable to connect the CC2511 Dongle to the PC.

See Figure 1.

Powered from the SmartRF04EB.

Connect pin 9 on the “Test pin” connector on CC2511 Dongle to pin 5 on the “I/O A” connector on SmartRF04EB to power the Dongle from the SmartRF04EB. See Figure 2.

The CC2511 Dongle should only be powered by one of the two sources at a time.

Do not connect the USB cable to the CC2511 Dongle while it is powered from the SmartRF04EB.

The SmartRF04EB have a level converter on the debug connector, so the SmartRF04EB and the CC2511 Dongle may have a different power supply voltage.

6. Turn on the power on the SmartRF04EB. See Figure 3.

Figure 3: SmartRF04EB Power switch, power on.

The CC2511 can now be programmed with the Chipcon Flash Programmer software. The firmware on the CC2511 can also be debugged using the IAR embedded workbench debugger.

Please see the IAR user manual and the Chipcon Flash Programmer user manual for more details.
