The SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz CC1312R wireless microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad™ development kit with Sub-1GHz Rado, which offers long-range connectivity, combined with a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M4F processor on a single chip. The Launchpad is designed to operate in both 868 MHz ISM band for Europe and 915MHz ISM band for USA with a single board without any modification to the board assembly. The Launchpad is equipped with a broadband integrated PCB trace antenna, which covers both 868 MHz and 915 MHz frequency bands. The Launchpad is also equipped with SMA connector for testing purpose and also to facilitate an external antenna connection.
The CC1312R is a member of the CC26x2 and CC13x2 family of cost-effective, ultra-low-power, 2.4 GHz and Sub-1 GHz RF devices. Very low active RF and microcontroller (MCU) current consumption, in addition to flexible low-power modes, provides excellent battery lifetime and allow long range 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 microcontroller 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. A rich peripheral feature set that includes a unique ultra-low power sensor controller. This sensor controller is ideal for interfacing external sensors and for collecting analog and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode.
Ready to take your application development to the next level? The CC1312R LaunchPad is part of TI’s SimpleLink MCU platform, offering a single development environment that delivers flexible hardware, software and tool options for customers developing wired and wireless applications. Save time and production cost by quickly prototyping your system with the LaunchPad kit’s I/O connectors that allow for quick interfacing to a variety of evaluation modules (EVMs) and BoosterPack™ plug-in modules. Develop your Internet of Things (IoT) software application on the CC1312R LaunchPad kit using the SimpleLink CC13x2 software development kit (SDK) featuring: the TI 15.4 stack, RF driver, power management driver and multiple peripheral drivers. The SDK also includes several “getting started” software examples to kickstart your development. All software examples included in the SimpleLink CC13x2 SDK support the CC1312R LaunchPad kit, making writing your application easy.
