Texas Instruments has released Rev. E of the SimpleLink CC1312R Wireless MCU enabling important enhancements. Verify hardware and software compatibility here
The CC1312R device is a Sub-1 GHz wireless MCU targeting Wireless M-Bus, IEEE 802.15.4g,----
IPv6-enabled smart objects (6LoWPAN), KNX RF, Wi-SUN®, and proprietary systems.
The CC1312R device is a member of the CC26xx and CC13xx family of cost-effective, ultra-low power, 2.4-GHz and Sub-1 GHz RF devices. Very low active RF and microcontroller (MCU) current, in addition to sub-µA sleep current with up to 80KB of RAM retention, provide excellent battery lifetime and allow operation on small coin-cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.
The CC1312R device combines a flexible, very low-power RF transceiver with a powerful 48-MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4F CPU in a platform supporting multiple physical layers and RF standards. A dedicated Radio Controller (Arm® Cortex®-M0) handles low-level RF protocol commands that are stored in ROM or RAM, thus ensuring ultra-low power and great flexibility. The low power consumption of the CC1312R device does not come at the expense of RF performance; the CC1312R device has excellent sensitivity and robustness (selectivity and blocking) performance.
The CC1312R device is a highly integrated, true single-chip solution incorporating a complete RF system and an on-chip DC/DC converter.
Sensors can be handled in a very low-power manner by a programmable, autonomous ultra-low power Sensor Controller CPU with 4KB of SRAM for program and data. The Sensor Controller, with its fast wake-up and ultra-low-power 2-MHz mode is designed for sampling, buffering, and processing both analog and digital sensor data; thus the MCU system can maximize sleep time and reduce active power.
The CC1312R device is part of the SimpleLink™ microcontroller (MCU) platform, which consists of Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® Low Energy, Thread, Zigbee, Sub-1 GHz MCUs, and host MCUs, which all share a common, easy-to-use development environment with a single core software development kit (SDK) and rich tool set. A one-time integration of the SimpleLink platform enables you to add any combination of the portfolio’s devices into your design, allowing 100 percent code reuse when your design requirements change.
