Hi everybody,

I got a bit further and have now the hardware multiplier and the USARTs 
(SPI mode only) implemented. While trying to get the CC2420 to work with 
TinyOS 2.x on the TelosB platform (test application is 
RadioCountToLeds), it appears that the TinyOS code for the TelosB waits 
for interrupts on the CCA pin. I managed to implement interrupt 
notifications for the startup phase (waiting for the oscillator to 
start), but I am unsure whether interrupts are really needed for the 
actual clear-channel assessment, and if so how to implement them best, 
as the current approach is to assess the channel only when requested and 
the assessment algorithm looks pretty heavy. Any ideas or suggestions?
