The SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz CC13x0 software development kit (SDK) provides a comprehensive Sub-1 GHz software package for the Sub-1 GHz CC1310 and Dual-band CC1350 wireless MCUs and includes the following:

  • TI 15.4-Stack - IEEE 802.15.4e/g-based star topology networking solution for Sub-1 GHz ISM bands (868MHz, 915MHz, and 433MHz),
  • Support for proprietary solutions - proprietary RF examples for Sub-1 GHz based on the RF driver and EasyLink Abstraction Layer.
  • Bluetooth Low Energy – Stack including support for all Bluetooth core specification 4.2 features as well as a BLE micro-stack to support customers using the Dual-Band CC1350 wireless MCU.

The SimpleLink CC13x0 SDK 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. For more information about the SimpleLink MCU Platform, visit

This release is available royalty-free to customers using TI’s SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz CC1310 and Dual-band CC1350 wireless MCUs.

Hardware Support
  • SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz CC1310 – Achieve long range with over 10 years of battery life on a coin cell battery. The CC1310 is an ultra-low power Sub-1 GHz wireless MCU with an Arm Cortex-M3 application core, an Arm Cortex-M0 for radio functions, and a proprietary 16-bit sensor controller core for ultra-low power operation.
