The SimpleLink™ CC2652RB device is the industry’s first
multiprotocol 2.4 GHz wireless crystal-less microcontroller (MCU) with integrated TI
Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) resonator technology supporting
Bluetooth® 5.1 Low Energy, IEEE 802.15.4,
IPv6-enabled smart objects (6LoWPAN), proprietary systems, including the TI 15.4-Stack
(2.4 GHz), and
multiprotocol operation through the Dynamic Multiprotocol Manager (DMM) software driver.
Integrated BAW resonator technology eliminates the need for external
crystals without compromising latency or frequency stability. The device is optimized
for low-power wireless communication and advanced sensing in
theater & entertainment, and
The highlighted features of TI Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) resonator
- Unparalleled RF performance with high-performance frequency stability
(±40 PPM) across temperature (-40 ⁰C to 85 ⁰C) and full
operating voltage (1.8 V to 3.8 V), ultra-low jitter and phase noise to
meet various wireless communication standards clock requirements.
development and production cycles by eliminating crystal oscillator sourcing and reducing costly
board re-designs and re-certification due to external crystal layout and assembly
- Optimized Bill of Material (BOM) and PCB area savings (12%
- Superior long-term clock stability and aging performance (10 years)
in comparison with most standard quartz crystal (longest 5 years aging) enables longer product
- Robust vibration and mechanical shock resistance (3× lower PPM variance versus external crystal) reduces product
replacement costs from external crystal failure and allows for operation in harsh environments,
such as in motors or heavy machinery.
- Mitigation of potential timing related
side channel attacks from external clock tampering.
The highlighted features of the
MCU platform include:
- Wide flexibility of protocol stack support in the
SimpleLink™ CC13x2 and CC26x2
Software Development Kit (SDK).
- Longer battery life wireless
applications with low standby current of 0.84 µA and full RAM
- Industrial temperature ready with lowest standby current of
5.6 µA at 85 ⁰C.
- Advanced sensing with a
programmable, autonomous ultra-low power Sensor Controller
CPU with fast wake-up capability. As an example, the sensor controller is capable of 1-Hz
ADC sampling at 1 µA system current.
(Soft Error Rate) FIT (Failure-in-time) for long operation lifetime with no disruption for
industrial markets with always-on SRAM parity against corruption due to potential radiation
- Dedicated software-defined radio controller
(Arm® Cortex®-M0) providing flexible
low-power RF transceiver capability to support multiple physical layers and RF
The CC2652RB device is part of the SimpleLink™ MCU platform, which
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. For more information, visit
