The CC2650RC, Texas Instruments' all-in-one SimpleLink multi-standard remote control development kit, aids developers in adding ultra-low power BLE, ZigBee RF4CE, or multi-standard connectivity to designs for voice remote controls, TVs and set-top boxes. It connects to the SimpleLink SensorTag ecosystem to expand functionality using DevPack plug-in modules. Using the MSP430FR2633 MCU with CapTIvate technology, features like gesture pad, capacitive buttons, sliders and grip detection can be added to remote designs while operating at less than 4 µA average current.
Integrated within the SimpleLink ultra-low power platform is a multi-standard radio, ARM Cortex-M3 core, direct microphone interface, up to 31 GPIOs and sensor controller in a single package. RF4CE, BLE or multi-standard connectivity can be implemented with voice capabilities into applications such as wearables, building automation, remote controls and automotive.
The CC2650RC SimpleLink ultra-low power wireless MCU development kit for remote controls is available now for $49. SimpleLink ZigBee RF4CE CC2620 and BLE CC2640 wireless MCUs are also available in different QFN package sizes from 4x4 mm to 7x7 mm with pricing starting at: $2.60 each/1,000 for the CC2620 wireless MCU (RF4CE) and the CC2640 wireless MCU (BLE); and $3.00 each/1,000 for the CC2650 wireless MCU (multi-standard).
