RemoTI Test Mode

From Texas Instruments Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In order to sell your RF4CE product in EU and on the North American market, your equipment needs to comply with the regulatory requirements of FCC (Federal Communications Committee), European Commission (R&TTE) and IC (Industry Canada).

During certification it must be possible to set the device in Tx with a given Tx power and channel. RemoTI™ provides an API to do so. This API should not be called while the stack is running as it is using the same resources.

void RTI_TestModeReq( uint8 mode, int8 txPower, uint8 channel )

  1. Reset or power cycle device, do not call RTI_InitReq()
  2. Call wanted API RTI_TestModeReq()
  3. Reset or power cycle device before using the stack by calling RTI_InitReq()

mode

Test Mode Description
0x00 The device will transmit unmodulated carrier with the specified frequency and transmit power
0x01 The device will transmit pseudo-random data with the specified frequency and transmit power
0x02 The device will have the radio placed in receive mode on the specified frequency

channel

Requested channel. Valid RF4CE channels are 15, 20 and 25. However, 802.15.4 channels 11-28 may be requested.

txPower

Requested Tx power in dBm. Valid range depends on the device. The value provided is a signed byte, but the actual Tx power depends on the power table, which can be found in the device's datasheet. txPower is translated into an index in the power table. So, it is not a direct match between the requested txPower and the actual Tx power in dBm. This is reflected in the following table.
