Design files


TIDC-BLUETOOTH-LOW-ENERGY-LONG-RANGE is a Bluetooth Smart reference design for long range applications. Use the CC2590 range extender to increase output power and improve sensitivity and thus achieve much longer range.

  • Use Bluetooth low energy technology for long range applications
  • Connect your solution to the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Over-the-air upgrades from phone/tablet to equipment
  • Use a smartphone instead of local display for:
    • More information, historical data, etc.
    • More intuitive set-up and configuration
    • Easy remote access to data
    • Personal operator/user setup and configuration
  • This circuit design is tested and includes firmware, GUI, demo and getting started guide

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
