SmartRF Flash Programmer 2 can be used to program the flash memory in Texas Instruments ARM based low-power RF wireless MCUs over the debug and serial interfaces. The flash programmer includes both a graphical user interface and a command line interface.
This is version 2.2.7 of the TI Bluetooth® low energy protocol stack Software Development Kit (SDK). The BLE-Stack SDK allows for the development of single-mode Bluetooth low energy (BLE) applications on TI's first generation SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC2640 and Multi-Standard CC2650 wireless microcontroller units (MCUs) supporting version 5.1 of the Bluetooth specification with features defined by version 4.2 of the Bluetooth specification. The CC26x0 family of wireless MCUs includes a 32-bit Arm® Cortex™-M3 as the main application CPU running at 48 MHz, a dedicated Cortex-M0 processor for the radio / Physical Layer (PHY), and an autonomous Sensor Controller Engine for low-power sensing applications. The BLE protocol stack is built on top of the TI Real-time Operating System (TI-RTOS) which provides advanced power management and flexible peripheral driver capabilities allowing the development of highly optimized and power efficient standalone or network processor applications. The TI-RTOS SDK is installed during the BLE-Stack SDK installation.
Version 2.2.7 of the BLE-Stack is a maintenance update to TI's existing royalty-free Bluetooth low energy software protocol stack which is certified for Bluetooth specification version 5.1. This release includes support for all core specification version 4.2 Low Energy (LE) features as well as several development kits. This protocol stack update is in addition to support of all major Bluetooth LE core specification version 4.1 features, including support for up to 8 master or slave BLE connections. Please note that no Bluetooth 5 or Bluetooth 5.1 features are supported. A few examples of what can be created using the sample applications in this SDK and/or the additional resources found in the Examples section below include Bluetooth beacons incorporating the popular Apple iBeacon® and Eddystone™ formats, glucose, heart rate and fitness monitors, dongles for cable replacement via a BLE Serial Port Bridge and industrial motor monitors.
See What's New section for an overview of the changes included in this release. The Bluetooth core specification version 4.2 features supported in this release allow development of the most secure and power efficient products incorporating the Bluetooth low energy specification.
SmartRF™ Studio is a Windows application that can be used to evaluate and configure Low Power RF devices from Texas Instruments. The application helps designers of RF systems to easily evaluate the radio at an early stage in the design process. It is especially useful for generation of configuration register values and commands, and for practical testing and debugging of the RF system. SmartRF Studio can be used either as a standalone application or together with applicable evaluation boards or debug probes for the RF device.
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:
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:
