Overview

To get started visit dev.ti.com/BOOSTXL-ULPSENSE

The ULP Sense BoosterPack is a kit designed to make it easy to demonstrate the ultra-low power features of the sensor controller included in the CC13x2/CC26x2 RF SoCs. 

Examples of applications that will greatly benefit from this are measurement on mechanical flow meters (either based on a reed switch or an inductive principle), Capacitive touch buttons and ultra-low power handling of accelerometers (for example fall detection).

The board also contains an analog light sensor and a potentiometer that is useful for ADC test cases. Many of the software examples in the ULP Sense Studio will be using the ULP Sense BoosterPack as a hardware platform.

Release Infomation

Sensor Controller Studio is used to write, test and debug code for the CC26xx/CC13xx Sensor Controller, allowing for ultra-low power application design.

The tool generates a Sensor Controller Interface driver, which is a set of C source files to be compiled into the System CPU (ARM Cortex-M3/M4) application. These source files contain the Sensor Controller firmware image and associated definitions, and generic functions that allow the System CPU application to control the Sensor Controller and exchange data.

The Sensor Controller is a small CPU core that is highly optimized for low power consumption and efficient peripheral operation. The Sensor Controller is located in the CC26xx/CC13xx auxiliary (AUX) power/clock domain, and can perform simple background tasks autonomously and independently of the System CPU and the MCU domain power state. Such tasks include but are not limited to:

  • Analog sensor polling, using ADC or comparator
  • Digital sensor polling, using SPI, I2C or other protocols
  • Capacitive sensing, using current source, comparator and time-to-digital converter (TDC)
  • Waveform generation, for example for LCDs

The Sensor Controller is user programmable, using a simple programming language with syntax similar to C. This allows for sensor polling and other tasks to be specified as sequential algorithms, rather than static configuration of complex peripheral modules, timers, DMA, register programmable state machines, event routing and so on. The main advantages are:

  • Flexibility
  • Dynamic reuse of hardware resources
  • Ability to perform simple data processing without need for dedicated hardware
  • Observability and debugging options

 

What's new

  • Added support for new devices: CC2672R3, CC2672P3, CC2662R-Q1, CC2652PSIP and CC2652P7.
  • Added example support for new SDKs, using TI-RTOS 7 and GPIO driver for the latest CC13x2/CC26x2 SDK.
  • Minor improvements.
  • Bug-fixes.
TI's Standard Terms and Conditions for Evaluation Items apply.
