SWRS096D December 2012 – April 2015 CC2538
TI offers an extensive line of development tools, including tools to evaluate the performance of the processors, generate code, develop algorithm implementations, and fully integrate and debug software and hardware modules. The tool's support documentation is electronically available within the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
The following products support development of the CC2538 device applications:
Software Development Tools: Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE): including Editor C/C++/Assembly Code Generation, and Debug plus additional development tools Scalable, Real-Time Foundation Software (DSP/BIOS™), which provides the basic run-time target software needed to support any CC2538 device application.
Hardware Development Tools: Extended Development System (XDS™) Emulator
For a complete listing of development-support tools for the CC2538 platform, visit the Texas Instruments website at www.ti.com. For information on pricing and availability, contact the nearest TI field sales office or authorized distributor.
To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of all microprocessors (MPUs) and support tools. Each device has one of three prefixes: X, P, or null (no prefix) (for example, CC2538).
Device development evolutionary flow:
Support tool development evolutionary flow:
X and P devices are shipped against the following disclaimer:
"Developmental product is intended for internal evaluation purposes."
Production devices have been characterized fully, and the quality and reliability of the device have been demonstrated fully. TI's standard warranty applies.
Predictions show that prototype devices (X or P) have a greater failure rate than the standard production devices. Texas Instruments recommends that these devices not be used in any production system because their expected end-use failure rate still is undefined. Only qualified production devices are to be used.
TI device nomenclature also includes a suffix with the device family name. This suffix indicates the package type (for example, RTQ) and the temperature range (for example, blank is the default commercial temperature range).
For orderable part numbers of CC2538 devices in the RTQ package types, see the Package Option Addendum of this document, the TI website (www.ti.com), or contact your TI sales representative.
The following documents describe the CC2538 processor. Copies of these documents are available on the Internet at www.ti.com.

This integrated circuit can be damaged by ESD. Texas Instruments recommends that all integrated circuits be handled with appropriate precautions. Failure to observe proper handling and installation procedures can cause damage.
ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure. Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.
