Sub-1GHz Smart Radio - MC12311 - TWR-12311-NAThe TWR-12311 is a development tool for the MC12311 system in package (SiP). MC12311 tools provide the ideal platform to develop a variety of applications where simple and robust wireless connectivity is needed. They enable fast, cost-effective wireless network development, with the necessary hardware, software, tools and demo applications to streamline the development process.

This kit is part of the Freescale Tower System, a modular, reusable development platform that offers unlimited possibilities to develop systems for smart metering, medical, building and home automation applications.


Hardware Features
  • MC12311 sub-1 GHz SiP operating from 315 MHz to 960 MHz
  • Programmable 32 KB flash memory and 2 KB RAM
  • Antennas with SMA connectors
  • Power amplifier output
  • Unbalance input/output port
  • Flexible RF-front end for different bands operation
  • Programmable output power from -18 dBm to +17 dBm in 1 dB steps
  • High sensitivity: down to -120dBm at 1.2 kbps
  • Onboard background debug module (BDM) port for MCU flash reprogramming and in-circuit hardware debugging
  • USB port to interface with PC
  • LEDs and switches for demonstration, monitoring and control

Software Features
  • Freescale´s MC12311 simple media access controller (SMAC) is a simple ANSI C-based code stack available as sample source code. It is used for developing proprietary RF wireless applications using a sub-1 GHz transceiver. The MC12311 SMAC was built to enable the flexibility of the MC12311 integrated circuit (IC). The MC12311 SMAC is incorporated into the Freescale BeeKit Wireless Connectivity Toolkit, which makes it easier for users to employ and customize MC12311 SMAC
  • Freescale´s MC12311 radio utility application provides a way to interact with the transceiver based on SMAC embedded applications. The radio utility application allows for complete configuration of the radio as well as basic transmitter and receiver tests
  • IEEE® 802.15.4 MAC with custom PHY layer: Freescale has developed a subset of the 802.15.4 PHY/MAC that fits into the internal flash memory of the MC12311. It supports the G-FSK modulation with multiple frequencies, data rates and channels
  • Freescale provides support for wireless M-Bus through our partner AMiHO. Freescale provides an evaluation version of wireless M-Bus and a full version can be purchased through AMiHO
