The SimpleLink™ CC2650 Development Kit includes all the hardware you need to start evaluating the SimpleLink Wireless MCU ultra-low power platform. The CC2650 device included in this kit is the superset device of the family, so it can also be used to evaluate the SimpleLink Bluetooth® Smart CC2640 wireless MCU and the ZigBee®/6LoWPAN CC2630 wireless MCU.

The kit includes two SmartRF06 evaluation boards, two CC2650 evaluation modules, two micro USB cables and a getting started guide.

The CC2650 evaluation module contains the wireless MCU and shows a variant of the RF layout using the 7x7 package, internal bias and differential RF output (variant 7ID). The board is equipped with a high performing PCB antenna, but you can easily attach an SMA connector to connect the radio to external test equipment.

The SmartRF06 evaluation board (the mother board) is specifically designed for running radio performance tests and for developing software. The boards are equipped with:

  • 128x64 pixels LCD screen
  • 5 push buttons
  • 4 LEDs
  • SD card holder
  • 3-axis digital accelerometer
  • Analog ambient light sensor
  • Break-out pins
  • XDS100v3 debugger

The CC2650 in the kit is pre-programmed with a packet error rate test, which can be used to test the practical range of the radio, both when operating in Bluetooth low energy mode and in IEEE 802.15.4 mode.

To get started with developing your own software for the CC2650, there are several options. For Bluetooth Smart applications, and to download the latest Bluetooth low energy stack, visit For the latest ZigBee stack, visit The stacks include and are built on top of TI-RTOS. Visit the TI-RTOS product page for more information.

Both Code Composer Studio and IAR’s Embedded Workbench for ARM can be used for software development on the CC2650.
