The TinyTeRP base and inertial modules have different microprocessors, which run distinct software:

1) Base Module Software. This code is flashed to the 8051-based CC2533 chip on the main board - see the subpage for the code and this process. For the base configuration of the

TinyTeRP, only this code is needed. In order to flash this software, the CC debugger shown at right will be needed.

This is provided as a set of modifications to example code from Texas Instruments, so that the software can be released under the Apache license. See the accompanying README.txt file for instructions, as well as the documentation that comes with the TI code.

2) Inertial Sensing Module Software. This is the code to flash to the MSP430F2370 on the inertial sensing board. Its subpage describes how our software is built and flashed.

The light sensor is run from the inertial board's MSP430. More complex sensors would require their own boards with microprocessors that support I2C.

See the attached file "TinyTerp First Use.pdf" for a basic introduction on how to load and debug both pieces of software.
