The main features of the BLE-Stack 2.0.0 are:

  • Full support for BT4.1 specifications
  • Advanced topology including concurrent master/slave operation and support for up to 8 connections
  • Ultra-low power advertisement and connected states
  • Built on top of TI-RTOS framework and includes peripheral drivers and libraries
  • Wide range of sample applications and certified profiles to reduce time to market
  • Supported in IAR Embedded Workbench® for ARM® and Code Composer Studio™ tool chains
  • The stack is available royalty-free to customers using TI’s CC2640 wireless MCU and also runs on TI’s SensorTag 2.0 and CC2650DK.

    BLE-STACK 1.4.1

    Texas Instruments' Bluetooth low energy BLE-Stack 1.4.1 software stack for TI’s CC2540 and CC2541 devices is a full-featured Bluetooth 4.0 stack that includes all necessary software to get started on the development of single-mode Bluetooth Smart applications. The BLE-Stack 1.4.1 is available royalty-free to customers using TI’s C2540/41 Bluetooth low energy system-on-chip (SoC) family and also runs on TI’s first generation SensorTag, CC2541DK-SENSOR and remote control CC2541DK-RC development kits.

    BLE-Stack 1.4.1 is a maintenance release and provides most updated and robust Bluetooth 4.0 SW stack for CC2540 and CC2541 devices. It is strongly recommended that all ongoing and new development projects update to BLE-Stack 1.4.1 release. For further details on this update, see the release notes in the BLE-Stack 1.4.1 installation. Additional resources, such as a porting guide and example applications can be found on the TI BLE Wiki.

    BLE-stack 1.4.1 includes object code with the latest Bluetooth low energy protocol stack supporting multiple connections, sample projects and applications covering an extensive set of profiles with source code, and BTool, a Windows PC application for testing applications. In addition to the software, the kit contains documentation, including a developer’s guide, sample applications guide, and API guide.
