The SimpleLink™ CC2650MODA device is a
wireless microcontroller (MCU) module that targets Bluetooth® low energy applications. The
CC2650MODA device can also run ZigBee® and 6LoWPAN and ZigBee
RF4CE™ remote control applications.
The module is based on the SimpleLink CC2650 wireless MCU, a member of the CC26xx
family of cost-effective, ultra-low-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 CC2650MODA module 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 ultra-low-power sensor
controller. This sensor controller is good for interfacing with external sensors or for collecting
analog and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode. Thus, the
CC2650MODA device is good for applications within a wide range of products including industrial,
consumer electronics, and medical devices.
The CC2650MODA module is pre-certified for operation under the regulations of the FCC,
IC, ETSI, and ARIB. These certifications save significant cost and effort for customers when
integrating the module into their products.
The Bluetooth low energy controller and the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC are embedded in the ROM
and are partly running on a separate ARM®
Cortex®-M0 processor. This architecture improves overall system
performance and power consumption and makes more flash memory available.
The Bluetooth low energy software stack (BLE-Stack)
and the ZigBee software stack (Z-Stack™) are available free of charge.
