Approaches to Designing a Wireless Sensor Network Node
Ivan Buhrym, Oleksandr Vynokurov, Pavlo Galkin

Theoretical and Applied Aspects of Device Development on Microcontrollers and FPGAs, MC&FPGA. – 2019. – P. 21-24.

The object of the research is the hardware component for building a test platform for wireless sensor networks. The aim of the work is to develop a software and hardware test platform for wireless sensor networks. As a result of the analysis, the node structures, wireless sensor network modules, CC2530 peripherals were analyzed. A module based on the CC2530 PA was chosen as the hardware. Given to optimize the structure of the node for as one of  approach to designing a wireless sensor network node. Also given report about difference in approach to designing nodes and uses areas.

Keywords:  approach, CC2530, software and hardware test platform, node, wireless sensor network
