Description

The CC2640R2F device has the first fully qualified Bluetooth 5 protocol stack for single-mode Bluetooth low energy applications supporting high speed mode.  CC2640R2F is part of the SimpleLink™ microcontroller (MCU) platform which consists of Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® low energy, Sub-1 GHz and host MCUs, which all share a common, easy-to-use development environment with a single core software development kit (SDK) and rich tool set. A one-time integration of the SimpleLink platform enables you to add any combination of the portfolio’s devices into your design, allowing 100 percent code reuse when your design requirements change.

The CC2640R2 LaunchPad kit brings easy Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) connection to the LaunchPad ecosystem with the SimpleLink ultra-low power CC26xx family of devices. Compared to the CC2650 LaunchPad this LaunchPad has:

  • More free flash memory for the user application in the CC2640R2F wireless MCU
  • Out of the box support for Bluetooth 5 high speed mode and Bluetooth 4.2 specification
  • Demo Bluetooth 5 coded physical layers (PHY) for long range mode testing (Bluetooth 5 long range mode stack support will be enabled with future software updates)

The CC2640R2F wireless MCU contains a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M3 processor that runs at 48 MHz as the main microcontroller and a rich peripheral feature set that includes a unique ultra-low power sensor controller. This sensor controller was created for interfacing external sensors and for collecting analog and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode.

The CC2640R2 LaunchPad kit is optimized for BLE applications with more flash memory available. It supports programming and debugging from Code Composer Studio™ and IAR Embedded Workbench® integrated development environments (IDEs).

Get started by downloading the TI BLE Stack and start with Project 0. This is a fully functional Bluetooth low energy peripheral application allowing control of the LaunchPad kit’s LEDs from the TI SimpleLink SensorTag kit iOS app or any compatible device supporting Bluetooth low energy connectivity. The project also demonstrates the flexibility of the TI RTOS and utilizes the LaunchPad kit’s onboard USB serial port to display diagnostic information about the Bluetooth low energy connection.

Ready to take your application development to the next level? Save time and production cost by quickly prototyping your system with the LaunchPad kit I/O connectors that allow for quick interfacing to a variety of evaluation modules (EVMs) and BoosterPack™ plug-in modules. Develop your Internet of Things (IoT) software application on the CC2640R2 LaunchPad kit using the TI BLE-Stack™ Software Development Kit (SDK) featuring royalty-free Bluetooth 5 and 4.2 certified software stacks. A Bluetooth low energy user’s guide for the LaunchPad kit is available on TI Resource Explorer  with instructions for building the most popular sample applications on the CC2640R2 LaunchPad kit.

Features
  • Support for new Bluetooth 5 2Mbps high speed mode
  • Connect your LaunchPad to the cloud with Bluetooth low energy on your Smartphone
  • Access all I/O signals with the BoosterPack connectors
  • Upgrade the LaunchPad firmware over-the-air from the SimpleLink Starter app
