Bluetooth Solution Enables Designs On MSP430 MCUs
The seventh-generation CC2560 from Texas Instruments offers an embedded Bluetooth stack running on TIís ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontroller (MCU). Two development kits, the EZ430-RF2560 and the PAN1315 evaluation module (EMK), are immediately available to new and existing customers for evaluations and upgrades. TI says that these development kits accelerate Bluetooth acceleration processes from months to weeks, reduce design barriers associated with RF implementations, and place fully functional Bluetooth technology in customersí hands within minutes of being unpacked.
According to TI, designers rely on the MSP430 to simultaneously interface to analog signals, sensors, and digital components in a wide range of portable devices. The EZ430-RF2560 wraps all hardware and software solutions into a single USB stick. The PAN1315 is a production-ready, highly advanced software development tool designed to help customers design new applications with the MSP430F5438 Experimenter board using the Panasonics CC2560-based Bluetooth module.
Customers working with these kits get full access to TIís partner community. For example, Panasonic provides the Bluetooth connectivity module that includes the CC2560 solution. MindTree provides its free Bluetooth software stack and SPP profile integrated in the MSP430 MCU. Available today, the EZ430-RF2560 development tool and PAN1315 EMK are available today for $99.
