Texas Instruments debuted its wireless MCU for Bluetooth low energy applications, offering an extended temperature range of -40°C to 125°C and USB connectivity. The temperature range allows for lighting designs with high junction temperature and any other designs requiring working in conditions above 85°C.

The CC2540T enables robust BLE master or slave nodes to be built with very low total BoMs, and can operate up to 125°C. The device combines an RF transceiver with an enhanced 8051 MCU, in-system programmable flash memory and 8KB RAM among others.

The MCU comes in a small form factor for industrial and consumer lighting. It provides low-power sleep modes, featuring short transition times between operating modes to further cut power consumption.

Other key features include wireless human machine interface (HMI) and remote display, storage of personalized preferences such as operator setups and ergonomic details, transfer of maintenance-related data to and from difficult-to-reach equipment via a mobile device, and cable replacement of RS-232, RS-485 or USB connections with moderate throughputs of less than 100kB/s.

TI said that its SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC2540T MCU is part of its free sample programme, available through authorised distributors starting at $2.3 per 1,000 units.


CC2540T is a wireless microcontroller for industrial and lighting applications.
