The SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz and dual-band CC13x2 software development kit (SDK) provides a comprehensive Sub-1 GHz software package for the Sub-1 GHz CC1312R and Dual-band CC1352R wireless MCUs and includes the following:

  • TI 15.4-Stack - IEEE 802.15.4e/g-based star topology networking solution for Sub-1 GHz ISM bands (868MHz, 915MHz, and 433MHz),
  • Support for proprietary solutions - Proprietary RF examples for Sub-1 GHz based on the RF driver and EasyLink Abstraction Layer.
  • Bluetooth Low Energy stack – Support for all Bluetooth core specification 5.0 features such as 2 Mbps high data rate, 125 kbps and 500 kbps Coded PHY for extended range and Advertisement Extensions.
  • Thread stack - Includes tools, application examples, documentation and source code of the Thread 1.1 networking protocol based on openthread (, an open-source implementation of the Thread networking stack.
  • Multiprotocol support – Support for running Sub-1 GHz and 2.4 GHz protocols concurrently, including, TI 15.4-Stack, Proprietary Sub-1 GHz, and BLE.

The SimpleLink CC13x2 SDK is part of TI’s SimpleLink MCU platform, offering a single development environment that delivers flexible hardware, software and tool options for customers developing wired and wireless applications. For more information about the SimpleLink MCU Platform, visit

This release is available royalty-free to customers using TI’s SimpleLink Sub-1 GHz CC1312R and Dual-band CC1352R wireless MCUs.
