The CC2564MODN TI CC256x device is a complete Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE HCI solution that reduces design effort and enables fast time to market. Based on TI’s seventh-generation Bluetooth core, the CC256x device provides a product-proven solution that supports 4.0 dual-mode (BR/EDR/LE) protocols. When coupled with a microcontroller unit (MCU), the HCI device provides best-in-class RF performance.

TI’s power-management hardware and software algorithms provide significant power savings in all commonly used Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE modes of operation.

With transmit power and receive sensitivity, this solution provides a best-in-class range of about 2x, compared to other BLE-only solutions. A royalty-free software Bluetooth stack available from TI is pre-integrated with TI’s MSP430 and ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 MCUs. The stack is also available for made for iPod (MFi) solutions and on other MCUs through TI’s partner Stonestreet One (www.stonestreetone.com). Some of the profiles supported today include: serial port profile (SPP), advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP), human interface device (HID), and several BLE profiles (these profiles vary based on the supported MCU).

In addition to software, this solution consists of multiple reference designs with a low BOM cost, including a new audio sink reference design for customers to create a variety of applications for low-end, low-power audio solutions.
