We designed these boards in a rush based on the CC1310 reference design as we needed them for testing a scientific hypothesis. The boards work great, we used about 20 of them to collected data around campus for 4 months running on solar and had no real issues. Except a squirrel...
We used the CC1310 launch pads as both a gateway/base station to collected data from all the sensor and sent it to a computer; and also as the JTAG debugger. The launch pads are sold at cost from TI for $29 US.
We previously used these PCBA for development of our MVP. Because the MCU is so powerful and the E2E community is so helpful you can quickly get up and running with these powerful boards in an afternoon.
We plan to add more information as we grow our own product and help others learn about the great MCU radios by TI; that are already in countless production products.
