Library updated for Texas Instruments platforms

Sensinode, a Finland-based provider of software to enable M2M connectivity using standard IP technology, has released version 2.0 of its Nanostack library for two hardware platforms from Texas Instruments.

The TI platforms are the CC2530 2.4GHz radio frequency system-on-chip (SoC) and the sub-1GHz CC430 SoC family, combining MSP MCUs and CC1101 RF transceivers, for ultra-low-power wireless network applications. With the updated release of Nanostack, developers can quickly implement embedded internet applications that leverage LPRF technology in hugely scalable mesh networks.

The library includes all required software to configure network nodes compliant with the IETF 6LoWPan specification (RFC4944) and related standards. This core technology enables IPv6 connectivity to IEEE 802.15.4 wireless network devices.

“We are proud to collaborate with Sensinode to provide TI customers with access to the critical tools that help them achieve design goals and speed time to market,” said Mark Grazier, LPRF programme manager at TI. “TI’s LPRF platforms and SoCs provide the foundation for smart devices that span various markets – from wireless sensing and lighting, to building automation, smart-energy applications and more.

“With proven scalability and a global support ecosystem for native IP networking, Sensinode’s updated Nanostack 2.0 libraries will provide all-new avenues for connected devices based on TI’s mature solutions.”

Sensinode has worked with TI across various product families to provide developers with the ability to integrate native IP communications with LPRF networking.

Nanostack 2.0 is claimed to have the industry’s smallest code footprint with extreme robustness, support for AES link-layer security and execution of the most recently defined enhancements to the IETF standards. Elements of the library include network layer (6LoWPAN) and transport layer (TCP/UDP) protocols, full 802.15.4 mac layer support and AES-CCM link layer security.
