exas Instruments’ CC1350 Microcontroller, Now at Mouser, Offers BLE and Sub-1GHz Connectivity

print_texas-instruments-cc1350Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the CC1350 SimpleLink™ ultra-low-power, dual-band wireless microcontroller from Texas Instruments (TI). Part of TI’s CC13xx and CC26xx families of devices, the CC1350 is designed for low-power wide area networks (LPWAN) and features dual-band connectivity that expands the functionality of a sub-1 GHz network with Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) implementations such as beaconing, over-the-air updates, smart commissioning, remote displays, and more. The device’s long-range connectivity paired with ultra-low power consumption that offers a sleep current of 0.7 µA allows for more than 10 years of battery life.


The TI CC1350 SimpleLink device, available from Mouser Electronics, integrates a flexible, very low-power RF transceiver with a powerful 48-MHz ARM® Cortex®-M3 microcontroller in a platform that supports multiple physical layers and radio frequency (RF) standards. A dedicated ARM Cortex-M0 radio controller handles low-level RF protocol commands that are stored in ROM or RAM, which ensures ultra-low power and flexibility to handle both sub-1 GHz protocols and 2.4 GHz protocols. This allows the combination of a sub-1 GHz communication solution with a BLE smartphone connection that enables great user experience through a phone application.


Mouser is also offering the TI CC1350 wireless microcontroller LaunchPad development kit. The CC1350 LaunchPad kit brings easy and low-cost sub-1GHz proprietary RF connections to the LaunchPad ecosystem with the SimpleLink ultra-low power CC13xx family of devices. A built-in onboard emulator helps designers get started with instant code development in the CCS Cloud. The CC1350 LaunchPad is supported by a large set of software examples as well as the TI BLE software stack, which enables full BLE connectivity.


The TI CC1350 SimpleLink device is available in a 7mm × 7mm, 48-pin VQFN package, allowing designers to create a wide range of innovative solutions for applications such as low-power wireless systems, home and building automation, wireless security systems, smart grid equipment, and long-range sensors.
