Description

The CC2640R2L device is a 2.4 GHz wireless microcontroller (MCU) supporting Bluetooth ® 5.1 Low Energy and Proprietary 2.4 GHz applications. The device is optimized for low-power wireless communication and advanced sensing in medical, asset tracking, personal electronics, retail automation, and building automation markets, and applications where industrial performance is required. The highlighted features of this device include:

  • Support for Bluetooth ® 5.1 features: LE Coded PHYs (Long Range), LE 2-Mbit PHY (High Speed), Advertising Extensions, Multiple Advertisement Sets, as well as backwards compatibility and support for key features from the Bluetooth ® 5.0 and earlier Low Energy specifications.
  • Fully-qualified Bluetooth ® 5.1 software protocol stack included with the SimpleLink™ CC2640R2 Software Development Kit (SDK) for developing applications on the powerful Arm® Cortex®-M3 processor.
  • Flash-based architecture with Cryptographic Accelerators and provision for on-chip and off-chip OAD.
  • Dedicated software controlled radio controller (Arm® Cortex®-M0) providing flexible low-power RF transceiver capability to support multiple physical layers and RF standards.
  • Excellent radio sensitivity and robustness (selectivity and blocking) performance for Bluetooth ® Low Energy (-97 dBm for 1Mbps PHY).

The CC2640R2L device is part of the SimpleLink™ microcontroller (MCU) platform, which consists of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread, ZigBee, Sub-1 GHz MCUs, and host MCUs that all share a common, easy-to-use development environment with a single core software development kit (SDK) and rich tool set. A one-time integration of the SimpleLink™ platform enables you to add any combination of the portfolio’s devices into your design, allowing 100 percent code reuse when your design requirements change.
