ZigBee development/evaluation kit designed for CC2530F256

This product includes ONLY one CC2530 module, while at least two CC2530 modules are required to setup a ZigBee network.


CC2530 Eval Kit4 is a ZigBee development/evaluation kit designed for CC2530F256, consists of the mother board ZB600 and the ZigBee moduleXCore2530. LCD and modules are also included.

Basically this kit can be used in two aspects :

  • Develop application with the provided firmware
    Combined with our provided firmware, you can use this kit to set up a minimal ready-to-run ZigBee system for testing or evaluating, and requires NO knowledge about the complicate ZigBee Specification
  • Develop your own firmware
    In this case, you should start from the very underlying to create your solution, what's more, debuggers (like CC Debugger) and knowledge about ZigBee Specification are also required

ZB600 Features

  • Onboard battery holder, multi power supplies are available
  • All the IOs are accessible for easy expansion
  • Integrates CP2102 for debugging
  • LEDs and user keys
  • Onboard sensor interface, supports connecting various sensors

XCore2530 Features

  1. As easy to use as any UART modules
  2. Provided firmware : Coordinator, Router, End Device
    • Router firmware is preloaded by default
  3. Supports sending large data packet & fast broadcasting via UART
  4. Supports programming via UART (thanks to the Bootloader, and an serial module is required)
  5. Supports configuring via upper computer software : working mode, UART port, baudrate, signal channel, etc.
  6. MISC
    • Auto networking (at least 1 Coordinator and 1 Router are required)
    • Real-time monitoring the signal intensity between Coordinator, Router, and End Device
    • Onboard power amplifier RXF2401, achieves farther communication distance
