IMPORTANT NOTE: The CC2541DK-MINI is recommended for use instead of the CC2540DK-MINI, as it provides the same functionality, but lower current consumption.

The CC2540DK-MINI development kit provides a working reference design for software development of single-mode Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) applications based on the Texas Instruments CC2540. The included “keyfob” board operates as a BLE peripheral device, and contains modifiable software that can be tailored towards different applications. Using BTool (Windows PC application) along with the included CC2540 USB Dongle, the Texas Instruments CC2540 BLE stack can be tested and verified while developing custom applications.


The kit contains the following hardware components:


1 CC2540 USB Dongle:  This is the device that will be acting as the BLE Master. It connects to a Windows PC’s USB port, and is pre-loaded with the master demo application software.

1 CC2540 “Keyfob”:  This is the device that will be acting as the BLE Slave. The PCB sits inside a plastic case, and can be removed with a small Philips screwdriver. It operates on a single CR2032 coin cell battery, and contains a two-colored LED, a buzzer, an accelerometer, and two buttons.

1 CC Debugger with mini USB cable, converter board, and a 10-pin connector cables:  This is used to flash the software onto both the USB dongle as well as the keyfob. It also can be used for debugging software using IAR Embedded Workbench
