TI: connecting building, factory and grid via Thread, Zigbee, Bluetooth 5 and Sub-1 GHz

To meet growing connectivity needs for buildings, factories and the grid, Texas Instruments introduced its newest SimpleLink wireless and wired microcontrollers. These new devices offer industry-leading low power consumption and concurrent multi-standard and multi-band connectivity for Thread, Zigbee, Bluetooth 5 and Sub-1 GHz. With more memory and unlimited connectivity options, the expanded SimpleLink MCU platform offers designers 100 percent code reuse across TI’s Arm Cortex-M4-based MCUs to enhance and connect sensor networks to the cloud.

The new wireless and host MCUs consistently achieve the lowest power in the industry, more than 10 years on a coin-cell battery, and now offer a newly enhanced low-power sensor controller with current consumption as low as 1.5uA for a 100 Hz comparator reading. With the multi-band CC1352P wireless MCU, developers can extend range even further for metering and building automation applications using its integrated power amplifier with high output power of +20-dBm and transmit current as low as 60 mA.

New SimpleLink MSP432P4 MCUs, with an integrated 16-bit precision ADC, give developers eight times more code space and the ability to host multiple wireless connectivity stacks and a 320-segment liquid crystal display with extended temperature range for industrial applications. The CC13x2 and CC26x2 wireless MCUs offer new security hardware accelerators for the following encryption protocols: AES-128/256, SHA2-512, Elliptic Curve Cryptography, RSA-2048 and true random number generator.

These new products are all supported by the SimpleLink software development kit and provide a unified framework for platform extension through 100 percent application code reuse.

To assist in developing with the SimpleLink MCU platform, TI offers the SimpleLink Academy, a comprehensive and interactive learning experience with overviews and training tutorials on the supported industry standards and technologies.
