Amazon Sidewalk is a secure and reliable community network that covers in-home, in-building, entire neighborhood and even entire city use cases using Amazon Sidewalk Bridges, such as compatible Amazon Echo and Ring devices, to provide cloud connectivity for IoT devices. Amazon Sidewalk enables low-bandwidth and long-range connectivity at home and beyond and uses Bluetooth® Low Energy for short-distance communication and Sub-1 GHz 915 MHz frequencies to cover longer distances. Amazon Sidewalk leverages small portions of internet bandwidth from millions of participating Sidewalk Bridges to provide widespread wireless connectivity. A best-in-class developer journey gives developers an unprecedented opportunity to build the intelligent apps, services, and devices needed to create the smart enterprises, homes, neighborhoods, cities and campuses of the future without worrying about enabling and maintaining cloud connectivity. The TI Amazon Sidewalk toolkit provides the fastest option to get started developing Amazon Sidewalk-enabled devices. The toolkit includes the TI tools necessary for the development (hardware, software and documentation) as well as a direct link to the AWS IoT Core for Amazon Sidewalk.

TI’s SimpleLink™ CC1312R7, CC1352P7, CC2652R7 and CC2652P7 wireless MCUs support the following Amazon Sidewalk protocols:

  • Sub-1 GHz FSK
  • Bluetooth Low Energy

The CC1312R7, CC1352P7, CC2652R7 and CC2652P7 are part of the SimpleLink microcontroller (MCU) platform which consists of Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth Low Energy, Sub-1 GHz, Thread, Zigbee®, 802.15.4 and host MCUs, which 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. The TI LaunchPad™ development kits for the CC1352P7 and CC2652R7 support programming and debugging from Code Composer Studio™ and IAR Embedded Workbench® integrated development environments (IDEs). TI provides a seamless integration and setup of Amazon Sidewalk with the shortest path to an authenticated development environment.
