Digi-Key adds low-power TI wireless MCU
Texas Instruments’ CC2640 is a wireless MCU targeting Bluetooth Smart applications. It is in stock at distributor Digi-Key.
The device is a member of the CC26xx family of cost-effective, ultra-low power, 2.4 GHz RF devices.
It offers very-low active RF and MCU current, and low-power mode current consumption which provides excellent battery lifetime and allows operation on small coin cell batteries and in energy-harvesting applications.
The CC2640 is based on a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M3 processor running at 48 MHz as the main processor and a rich peripheral feature set, including an ultra-low-power sensor controller that is ideal for interfacing external sensors and/or collecting analogue and digital data autonomously while the rest of the system is in sleep mode.
This makes the CC2640 ideal for a wide range of applications where long battery lifetime, small form-factor, and ease-of-use are important.
These include home and building automation, industrial, retail, health and medical, sports and fitness, HID, and accessories
