Type: Mote

The CM3300 mote is a IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor node based on the original open-source "TelosB" platform design developed and published by the University of California, Berkeley. The mote has the following general characteristics:

  • IEEE 802.15.4 WSN platform
  • TI MSP430F1611 Microcontroller
  • TI CC2420 Radio Transceiver with additional power amplifier & LNA
  • TinyOS 2.x & ContikiOS Compatible
  • User & Reset Buttons
  • 3xLeds
  • Hirose® 51-pin connector
  • External 5dBi SMA antenna
  • DC Input & Power Supply

The CM3300 presents a compact design in which the traditional USB connector has been replaced with an ERNI® connector compatible with Interface modules. The Hirose® 51-pin connector also adds versatility to this product as it is attachable to all the sensor boards family, and the SMA design greatly increases coverage area through the use of a more powerful 5dBi external antenna. It has an additional power amplifier and LNA in the radio chip to further increase transmission power. Due to this increased radio power, the CM3300 has a DC input as it is normally used as repeater or root node in network topologies.
