In keeping with the our goal of making Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) modules as easy to work with as possible, we are pleased to offer you a range of development tools specifically designed to help you experiment with, design, develop, and test end-products incorporating AIR technology. Since AIR modules are based on Texas Instruments renowned, low-power RF chips -- and ideally suited to support MSP430-based designs -- several of these tools are designed to work with TI development kits you may already own or use on a day-to-day basis. In other cases, Anaren has developed its own proprietary tools. Either way, we hope you will take full advantage these assets to speed your product-design process!
|Development Tool||Description / To get started...
AIR-module BoosterPacks are test boards pre-populated with your AIR module of choice -- and ready to plug and play into the popular Texas Instruments LaunchPad development environment. BoosterPacks currently available include:
Each BoosterPack kit includes:
Additionally, when you use any AIR-equipped BoosterPack in the LaunchPad environment, you gain access to Anaren's BoosterStack software, featuring our exclusive AIR Traffic Control (ATC) GUI -- for real-time monitoring of your radio application's performance and data packet integrity. And because we give you full access to BoosterStack's source code, you can easily leverage the code in your own application!
|EZ Target Boards||
EZ4x target boards are 19.7 x 34.5mm circuit boards pre-equipped with AIR modules and ready to work in the context of TI's popular EZ430-RF2500 development kit. Simply swap out the target boards supplied with that kit, and you are ready to begin trying AIR out in all sorts of scenerios.

EM boards are 38 x 28.6mm circuit boards pre-equipped with AIR modules and ready to work in the context of TI's popular CC-1101 DK and CC2500 DK development kits. Each board has bottom-mounted, standardized connectors that literally enable you to 'snap' your AIR EM board into your DK kit and get started.
