Mouser Electronics is now stocking the CC2640R2F SimpleLink ultra-low-power wireless microcontroller from Texas Instruments (TI). Part of TI’s CC26xx SimpleLink family of 2.4GHz devices, the CC2640R2F microcontroller features a small, single-chip system that integrates a flash-based microcontroller and Bluetooth Smart radio to target Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth 5 low-energy applications.
The TI CC2640R2F SimpleLink microcontroller combines a 61μA/MHz ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and a rich peripheral set that includes an 8.2μA/MHz sensor controller. The 48MHz ARM microcontroller offers 128kBytes of flash and 28kBytes of SRAM and supports over-the-air (OTA) updates. The sensor controller is suitable for interfacing external sensors and for collecting analogue and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode. The CC2640R2F device includes a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter, up to 31 general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), and built-in robust security on chip with one of the simplest radio frequency (RF) and antenna designs available. Minimal RF expertise is required to implement the device, which helps make development and layout very easy.
The CC2640R2F wireless microcontroller is available in 2.7×2.7mm WCSP and 4×4, 5×5 and 7×7mm QFN packages, and is designed for a board array of wireless Internet of Things (IoT) applications, including health and fitness, industrial, and home and building automation.
With ready-to-use protocol stacks (including the SIMPLELINK-CC2640R2-SDK software development kit for Bluetooth 5), the SimpleLink portfolio of wireless connectivity products not only offers designers flexibility and support but also delivers the industry’s only multi-standard capabilities with code- and pin-compatibility across Bluetooth Smart, 6LoWPAN, ZigBee and ZigBee RF4CE.
