i just want to know whether the CC2540 can work at the bluetooth mode without program the 8051 mcu which embeded in the CC2540 chip.IF i need to program the CC2540 chip, which software i need to download. Thank you very much.
If you want to NOT program the CC2540, you hve several .hex files, which are already compiled, to flash within the CC2540 modules.
If you want to PROGRAM the cc2540, you need the IAR Workbench v8.10 ans SmartRF flash programmer.
If you only want to program a microcontroller, you do not need the cc2540, get a MSP430 launchpad, for example.
I hope I helped you since I do not understand your question.

thank you very much for your reply, actually I want to design a bluetooth module and use CC2540 as the main chip, it can receive the data which come from ARM CPU throughout the UART serial ports and transmits it out ,it can also receive the data which come from another bluetooth module and send these data to ARM CPU throughout the UART serial ports.
To make the design more easier, what can i do? I donot want to program the CC2540 because it just a small part of the whole system,and the master PCB board has just left a 4 wire UART port for the bluetooth module. Thanks a lot and good luck to you.
Flash the HostTestRelease on the module and attach a microcontroller to send commands to it.
It is the Network Processor approach.
