Due to high demand for the LAUNCHXL-CC2640R2, we are temporarily out of stock accepting back-orders.
Developers willing to get started with Bluetooth low energy 4.2 applications, can acquire the LAUNCHXL-CC2650 + BLE-STACK-2-2-1 which are available now and move to production with the CC2640 wireless MCU. When needed, developers can then migrate to the CC2640R2F wireless MCU, pin-to pin compatible with CC2640 with a SW migration.www.ti.com/simplelink.
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 CC2640R2 wireless MCU
- Out of the box support for Bluetooth 4.2 specification
- Bluetooth 5 core specification physic layer (PHY) support for higher throughput and longer range (Bluetooth 5 protocol stack support will be enabled with future software updates)
The CC2640R2 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 a royalty-free Bluetooth 4.2 certified software stack. A Bluetooth low energy user’s guide for the LaunchPad kit is available on the Bluetooth low energy wiki with instructions for building the most popular sample applications on the CC2650 LaunchPad kit.
- 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
