SWRS207H January 2018 – March 2021 CC2652R
The CC2652R device is supported by a variety of software and hardware development tools.
The CC26x2R LaunchPad™ Development Kit enables development of high-performance wireless applications that benefit from low-power operation. The kit features the CC2652R SimpleLink Wireless MCU, which allows you to quickly evaluate and prototype 2.4-GHz wireless applications such as Bluetooth 5 Low Energy, Zigbee and Thread, plus combinations of these. The kit works with the LaunchPad ecosystem, easily enabling additional functionality like sensors, display and more. The built-in EnergyTrace™ software is an energy-based code analysis tool that measures and displays the application’s energy profile and helps to optimize it for ultra-low-power consumption. See Table 6-1 for guidance in selecting the correct device for single-protocol products.
The SimpleLink CC13x2-CC26x2 Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a complete package for the development of wireless applications on the CC13x2 / CC26x2 family of devices. The SDK includes a comprehensive software package for the CC2652R device, including the following protocol stacks:
The SimpleLink CC13x2-CC26x2 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.

Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) that supports TI's Microcontroller and Embedded Processors portfolio. Code Composer Studio comprises a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. It includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler, and many other features. The intuitive IDE provides a single user interface taking you through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces allow users to get started faster than ever before. Code Composer Studio combines the advantages of the Eclipse® software framework with advanced embedded debug capabilities from TI resulting in a compelling feature-rich development environment for embedded developers.
CCS has support for all SimpleLink Wireless MCUs and includes support for EnergyTrace™ software (application energy usage profiling). A real-time object viewer plugin is available for TI-RTOS, part of the SimpleLink SDK.
Code Composer Studio is provided free of charge when used in conjunction with the XDS debuggers included on a LaunchPad Development Kit.
Code Composer Studio (CCS) Cloud is a web-based IDE that allows you to create, edit and build CCS and Energia™ projects. After you have successfully built your project, you can download and run on your connected LaunchPad. Basic debugging, including features like setting breakpoints and viewing variable values is now supported with CCS Cloud.
IAR Embedded Workbench® is a set of development tools for building and debugging embedded system applications using assembler, C and C++. It provides a completely integrated development environment that includes a project manager, editor, and build tools. IAR has support for all SimpleLink Wireless MCUs. It offers broad debugger support, including XDS110, IAR I-jet™ and Segger J-Link™. A real-time object viewer plugin is available for TI-RTOS, part of the SimpleLink SDK. IAR is also supported out-of-the-box on most software examples provided as part of the SimpleLink SDK.
A 30-day evaluation or a 32 KB size-limited version is available through iar.com.
SmartRF™ Studio is a Windows® application that can be used to evaluate and configure SimpleLink Wireless MCUs from Texas Instruments. The application will help designers of RF systems to easily evaluate the radio at an early stage in the design process. It is especially useful for generation of configuration register values and for practical testing and debugging of the RF system. SmartRF Studio can be used either as a standalone application or together with applicable evaluation boards or debug probes for the RF device. Features of the SmartRF Studio include:
Sensor Controller Studio is used to write, test and debug code for the Sensor Controller peripheral. The tool generates a Sensor Controller Interface driver, which is a set of C source files that are compiled into the System CPU application. These source files also contain the Sensor Controller binary image and allow the System CPU application to control and exchange data with the Sensor Controller. Features of the Sensor Controller Studio include:
CCS UniFlash is a standalone tool used to program on-chip flash memory on TI MCUs. UniFlash has a GUI, command line, and scripting interface. CCS UniFlash is available free of charge.
