The CC2540 development kit provides a complete hardware performance test platform and generic software development environment for single-mode Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) applications. The kit includes two CC2540-based RF evaluation modules, one CC2540-based USB dongle, general purpose development boards (SmartRF05EB) for software and hardware prototyping, cables, antennas and documentation to get you up and running with the CC2540 quickly and easily.

The CC2540 evaluation modules can be plugged into the SmartRF05EB boards, which are included in the development kit. The evaluation modules can be used as reference modules for prototyping and for verifying the performance of the CC2540 RF IC.

SmartRF Studio and SmartRF Packet Sniffer can be used with the hardware in the kit for testing and debugging purposes. The evaluation boards has an in-circuit debug probe, so no additional hardware tools are required for debugging of software running on the CC2540.

Kit contents:
  • 2 SmartRF05 Evaluation Boards (SmartRF05EB)
  • 2 CC2540 Evaluation Modules (CC2540EM)
  • 2 Pulse Antennas
  • 1 CC2540 USB Dongle
