The Texas Instruments' CC2564 device is a complete Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE HCI solution that reduces design effort and enables fast time-to-market. Based on TI’s seventh-generation Bluetooth core, the CC2564 device brings a product-proven solution that supports Bluetooth 4.0 dual-mode (BR/EDR/LE) protocols. When coupled with an MCU device, this HCI device provides best-in-class RF performance.
TI’s power-management hardware and software algorithms provide significant power savings in all commonly-used Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE modes of operation.
With transmit power and receive sensitivity, this solution provides a best-in-class range of about 2x, compared to other BLE-only solutions. A royalty-free software Bluetooth stack available from TI is pre-integrated with TI's MSP430 and ARM® Cortex™-M3 and Cortex™-M4 MCUs. The stack is also available for MFi solutions and on other MCUs through TI's partner Stonestreet One (www.stonestreetone.com). Some of the profiles supported today include serial port profile (SPP), human interface device (HID), and several BLE profiles.
