EXPERIENCE THE MUSE
Experience the Muse is designed to aid hands-on learning of the fundamental concepts and tools of wireless sensor network design and performance analysis. It includes demonstrations of and experiments for
- simulation of wireless circuits and systems
- embedded software design
- characterization of wireless communication links and antennas
You can use these independently or alone with the video lectures.
All hardware and software designs are available for use both as-is and
as templates for new experiments of designs.
The CLIO Wireless Sensor Node Development Tool:
The CLIO is a board designed to make it easy and fun to build both the hardware and software of a basic wireless sensor node. It consists of four components.
1. The first is the eZ430-RF2500 Wireless Development Tool---we call it the eZ430--- from Texas Instruments (picture here). It integrates a TI MSP430F2274 ultra-low power MCU and a TI CC2500 single-chip 2.4 GHz radio transceiver, and exports 18 I/O pins to a pad that can be populated with a header.
AWR Corporation (AWR Design Environment - AWRDE)
We use AWRDE to build simulation models of communication circuits and systems. Very briefly, AWR DE integrates circuit- and system- level models and design tools. This means that you can explore models across traditional circuit/system design layers. It also has tools that make system characterization easy. For Example, it is possible to sweep parameter values and view results both time- and frequency domains.

platform or the AWR DE simulation environment in a course, please fill
