Development tools

SmartRF Studio

A Windows application that helps designers of RF systems easily evaluate the RF-ICs at an early stage in the design process.

Sensor controller studio

Sensor Controller Studio is used to write, test and debug code for the CC26xx/CC13xx Sensor Controller allowing for ultra-low power application design.

Resource explorer

An environment that helps you find all the latest examples, libraries, demo applications, datasheets, and more for your chosen platform.

An integrated development environment (IDE) that supports TI's Microcontroller and Embedded Processors portfolio.

User-friendly IDE with project management tools and editor that incorporates a highly optimized C/C++ compiler.

A standalone tool used to program on-chip flash memory on TI MCUs and on-board flash memory for Sitara processors.

Used to program the flash memory for many SimpleLink™ wireless devices and for upgrading the firmware and bootloader on related evaluation boards and debugger.

A small programmer and debugger for Wireless Networking Solutions.

Created by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) as a tool to help developers quickly get up to speed with application development and debugging.

Windows application that displays services, characteristics and attributes of any Bluetooth low energy device. Can also be used to download firmware over the air for the SensorTag and BLE.

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group and the FCC provide the normative requirements to certify a Bluetooth product.

SmartRF Packet Sniffer 2 includes software and firmware to capture and display over-the-air packets.

Other kits and software

Connect your sensor data to the cloud in three minutes with the SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy SensorTag IoT demonstration kit for the CC2640 wireless MCU.

All-in-one solution for development of voice-based Bluetooth® low energy, ZigBee® RF4CE™ or multi-standard remote controls with the CC2640, CC2620 or CC2650 wireless MCUs, respectively.

Perfect for evaluating the CC2540 or the CC2541 wireless MCU. This kit contains a CC2541 keyfob board and a CC2540 USB dongle to evaluate both Bluetooth low energy wireless MCUs.
