CC256x Bluetooth® Solution

A Bluetooth/dual-mode evaluation module from Texas Instruments

Image of Texas Instruments' CC256x Bluetooth® SolutionTexas Instruments' reference design for CC256x Bluetooth solution is used on this evaluation module board. The CC256x Bluetooth solution can support Bluetooth classic and Bluetooth low energy or ANT.

To aid in the implementation of this reference design, there are schematic, layout, BOM and gerber files available on the CC256x Main Wiki page.

The CC256x QFN EM board is intended for evaluation purpose and works with Texas Instruments hardware development kits such as MSP-EXP430F5529, MSP-EXP430F5438, DK-TM4C123G, and DK-TM4C129X.

The TI CC256x Bluetooth device is a complete BR/EDR/LE HCI solution that reduces design effort and enables fast time-to-market for applications like cable replacement, wireless sensors, mobile device accessories, industrial control, health and fitness devices, and simple audio solutions. Based on TI’s seventh-generation core, the device brings a product-proven solution that supports 4.1 dual-mode (BR/EDR/LE) protocols.
