Bolton let us know that TI along with Anaren have released a wireless Booster Pack based on the the CC110L radio – 430Boost-CC110L AIR. This is the second Booster Pack after the release of the Cap. Touch Booster Pack in April. Since then, a number of community generated packs have been added to the mix.
The CC110L AIR BoosterPack is a low-power wireless transceiver extension module for use with the Texas Instruments MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad development kit. Based on the CC110L device, the on-board A110LR09A radio module with integrated antenna operates in the European 868-870MHz and US 902-928MHz ISM bands. The included AIR BoosterPack software application, called AIR BoosterStack, demonstrates an example sensor network as well as network status reporting.
A rich GUI also accompanies it:
