Kits and evaluation modules

Wireless connectivity kits and evaluation modules consist of an array of boards ranging from demo and application-specific hardware to full-feature development kits for hardware performance testing and software development.

SimpleLink CC2650 Multi-Standard SensorTag Kit

The SensorTag IoT kit invites you to realize your cloud-connected product idea. Includes 10 low-power MEMS sensors and is expandable with DevPacks to make it easy to add your own sensors or actuators. Based on the CC2650 wireless MCU, it offers development on ZigBee and other wireless standards.

CC2531 USB Evaluation Module

The CC2531EMK kit provides one CC2531 USB Dongle and documentation to support a PC interface to 802.15.4 / ZigBee applications. The dongle can be plugged directly into your PC and can be used as an IEEE 802.15.4 packet sniffer or for other purposes.

CC2538 Development Kit

The CC2538 development kit provides a complete hardware performance test platform and generic software development environment for the ARM Cortex M3-based, IEEE 802.15.4 compliant CC2538 system-on-chip. 

CC2538 Evaluation Module

The CC2538 Evaluation Module Kit is an add-on kit for the CC2538DK and it contains two CC2538 evaluation module boards. The CC2538 evaluation modules can be used as reference modules for hardware and software prototyping and for verifying the performance of the CC2538 RF IC.

ZigBee Light Link Development Kit

The ZigBee® Light Link™ development kit, based on TI's CC2530 system-on-chip, contains everything needed to easily evaluate ZLL lighting control for LED light products and develop simple applications and demos based on this standard.


Wireless network stacks, peripheral and driver libraries and software application examples that simplify designing wireless applications.

Z-Stack™ Software Stack

Z-Stack™ software stack is the Texas Instruments ZigBee-compliant protocal stack for a growing portfolio of IEEE 802.15.4 products and applications. The Z-Stack™ software is designed for home automation, lighting and smart energy applications.

CC2538 Foundation Firmware

The CC2538 foundation firmware is an extensive collection of software libraries for the CC2538 - an ARM Cortex-M3 based IEEE 802.15.4 compliant RF system-on-chip.

IEEE802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) Software Stack

TIMAC is the Texas Instruments IEEE802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) software stack and is available for multiple platforms and enables easy application development and easy porting.

Development tools

Get started with your programming using these development tools for RF testing, configuration and code generation.

SmartRF™ Studio

The SmartRF™ Studio application help designers of RF systems easily evaluate the RF-ICs at an early stage in the design process. It is especially useful for generation of configuration register values, for practical testing of the RF system and for finding optimized external component values.

SmartRF™ Flash Programmer

The SmartRF™ Flash Programmer can be used to program the flash memory many SimpleLink wireless networking solutions devices and for upgrading the firmware and bootloader on the related evaluation boards and debugger (SmartRF Evaluation Boards, CC Debugger, etc.).

Debugger and Programmer for SimpleLink™ Solutions

The CC Debugger is a small programmer and debugger for the SimpleLink wireless networking solutions. It can be used together with IAR Embedded Workbench for 8051 (version 7.51A or later) for debugging and SmartRF Flash Programmer for flash programming.
