Nowadays, some manufacturers offer boards with additional power amplifiers for the radio signal. These boards may cover a rather large area than the regular CC2530. The standard router firmware does not work with boards.
Therefore I’ve prepared particular versions of the router firmware.
EBYTE E18-MS1PA1-IPX (best choice: CC2592 amplifier and connector for external antenna) + breadboard for easy soldering and mounting.
EBYTE E18-MS1PA1 (for small devices: CC2592 amplifier, built-in antenna).
Compact power supply: option 1 or option 2
Therefore I’ve prepared particular versions:
The RFX2401 power amplifier has wiring identical to CC2590. Please, use the firmware for cc2530 + cc2590.
Your comments are welcome!
- These boards require a power supply with a stable high output current (500mA). Double-check cheap Chinese power sources.
- Double-check the distance between pins or pin pads. For example, the EBYTE board has 1.27 mm between pins. It is very hard to solder.
