Description

The CC2650 device is a wireless MCU targeting Bluetooth, ZigBee® and 6LoWPAN, and ZigBee RF4CE remote control applications.

The device is a member of the CC26xx family of cost-effective, ultralow power, 2.4-GHz RF devices. Very low active RF and MCU current and low-power mode current consumption provide excellent battery lifetime and allow for operation on small coin cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.

The CC2650 device contains a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor that runs at 48 MHz as the main processor and a rich peripheral feature set that includes a unique ultralow power sensor controller. This sensor controller is ideal for interfacing external sensors and for collecting analog and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode. Thus, the CC2650 device is ideal for applications within a whole range of products including industrial, consumer electronics, and medical.

The Bluetooth Low Energy controller and the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC are embedded into ROM and are partly running on a separate ARM Cortex-M0 processor. This architecture improves overall system performance and power consumption and frees up flash memory for the application.

The Bluetooth and ZigBee stacks are available free of charge from www.ti.com.
