The pinout is the same but it is now a SMD device.
No need to change the layout. The crystal is thu-hole so there are solder bumps on the back.
The different iterations of the shields..
Clockwise from top left, the V05 shield with socketed module, the original protoype, the V06 shield new with new CC2500 module and the V05 shield with external antenna.
Please take note of the following changes and non-obvious issues :
The CC2500 Shield for Arduino is a kit that interfaces an Arduino to a CC2500 radio transmitter – receiver.
What do you need :
Assembly is fairly easy :
I have made a couple of clips showing how the prototype was assembled.
Mounting the SMD’s part 1.
Mounting the SMD’s part 2.
The LED’s and the 8 pin header.
The pin headers.
After mounting the parts it is best to check a few things.
