Description

The CC2642R device is a 2.4 GHz wireless microcontroller (MCU) targeting Bluetooth® 5 Low Energy and Proprietary 2.4 GHz applications. The device is optimized for low-power wireless communication and advanced sensing in building security systems, HVAC, asset tracking, and medical markets, and applications where industrial performance is required. The highlighted features of this device include:

  • Support for Bluetooth® 5 features: LE Coded PHYs (Long Range), LE 2-Mbit PHY (High Speed), Advertising Extensions, Multiple Advertisement Sets, CSA#2, as well as backwards compatibility and support for key features from the Bluetooth® 4.2 and earlier Low Energy specifications.
  • Fully-qualified Bluetooth® 5 software protocol stack included with the SimpleLink™ CC13x2 and CC26x2 Software Development Kit (SDK).
  • Longer battery life wireless applications with low standby current of 0.94 µA with full RAM retention.
  • Industrial temperature ready with lowest standby current of 11 µA at 105 ⁰C.
  • Advanced sensing with a programmable, autonomous ultra-low power Sensor Controller CPU with fast wake-up capability. As an example, the sensor controller is capable of 1-Hz ADC sampling at 1 µA system current.
  • Low SER (Soft Error Rate) FIT (Failure-in-time) for long operation lifetime with no disruption for industrial markets with always-on SRAM parity against corruption due to potential radiation events.
  • Dedicated software controlled radio controller (Arm® Cortex®-M0) providing flexible low-power RF transceiver capability to support multiple physical layers and RF standards, such as real-time localization (RTLS) technologies.
  • Excellent radio sensitivity and robustness (selectivity and blocking) performance for Bluetooth® Low Energy (-105 dBm for 125-kbps LE Coded PHY).

The CC2642R 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 that 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.
