AN001: Hints and Tips Using RC1xx0 The RC1xx0 series of RF Modules with integrated protocol offers easy adaption of wireless communication utilizing a simple UART serial interface. This document addresses notes related to using a standard level shifter together with the module, practical considerations to ease the setup of the radio module and finally troubleshooting hints and tips.
AN002: Networks With RepeatersThe RC1xx0 and RC2x00 series of RF Modules with integrated protocol offers easy adaptation of wireless communication utilizing a simple UART serial interface. By using the embedded multi-channel utilities and the addressing features and by introducing repeaters, large and complex networks with outstanding range can be configured.
AN004: RF Modules With External Power Amplifier The RC1xx0 and RC2x00 series of RF Modules with integrated protocol offers easy adaptation of wireless communication utilizing a simple UART serial interface. In their standard versions without any required configuration the modules offer two pins for controlling PA, LNA and SPDTs for signal switching. Two SPDTs are required since it is only one RF pin on the Radiocrafts modules.
AN005: Porting The Z-Stack HCL To RC2200DKThis application note describe how to port the Figure 8 Wireless Z-stack Home Control Lighting (HCL) example from the Chipcon CC2420DB to the Radiocrafts RC2200DK. The main difference between the two hardware platforms are the I/O ports used for LEDs and switches. Also, the RC2200 module does not have external RAM.
AN009: Implementing With Radiocrafts Wireless M-BUS ModuleWireless M-Bus (EN 13757-4:2013) is the only European Standard specifically targeting wireless reading of electricity, gas-, water-, heat-meters and heat allocators. The Radiocrafts module MBUSx and MPC1 is dedicated to these specific applications. This Application Note will help selecting the correct module for your Wireless M-bus implementation and informs you were to find more detailed information.
AN010: Wireless M-BUS To Wired M-BUSThis Application Note describes how the Bridge (ref “Dongle” in figure 1) can be implemented with the RC1180-MBUS module. In some cases, the Bridge is located in an electricity meter which acts as a concentrator for one or more gas-, water and/or heat-meters.
AN012: Firmware Upgrading The RC1180 ModuleThe Radiocrafts Demo Boards and USB-sticks include an on-board firmware upgrade connector compatible with different flash programming adapters. It is also recommended that PCB layouts include a connector for firmware upgrade. This Application Note describes how to upgrade the firmware of any Radiocrafts RFmodule using either a CC Debugger or the FlashPro-CC tools.
AN015: Tinymesh Locator FunctionTinyMesh features a unique locator function as part of the comprehensive embedded control- and monitoring features embedded in the protocol. This Application Note describes the location features in more detail.
AN016: Tinymesh EncryptionThis Application Note describes how to use the RC232-CCT to enable and disable encryption and for entering new 16-bytes AES128 encryption key.
AN017: CRC Calculations For MBUS ModulesThis Application Note describes how the Wireless M-Bus modules (MBUS3, MBUS4) from Radiocrafts can be enabled with CRC-16 for possible error identification on the UART port. This feature secures that the data handling on the serial interface is more secure as wrong data can be rejected.
AN018: Radiocrafts Sub-1GHz Modules for FCC ComplianceRadiocrafts offers a wide range of wireless modules targeting different solutions word-wide. This Application Note informs how to select and use Radiocrafts modules for FCC compliance in US.
AN019: MBUS4 and Italian CIG RequirementsThe Italian “CIG Interchangeability Task Force” has published UNI/TS 11291-11-4, Gas measurement systems – Hourly based gas metering systems, Part 11-4, Communication profile PM1. This application note points out how the RC1701HP/VHP-MBUS4 module can be used to meet the requirements of this companion standard.
AN020: RF Module Trouble Shooting GuideThe purpose of this document is to list some of the most common issues that customers report when using Radiocrafts modules, and the solution to these issues.
AN021: RF Module Range Calculation and TestWhen selecting the right radio technology, the achievable communication range is an important factor. This document review how to analyse radio range based on parameter provided in the data sheets for the different module families. Some measurement results from practical range testing are also shown
