TIDA-01012: How to change cc2640 project to cc2650

Part Number: TIDA-01012

Hi, BLE experts, 

I am new, I just downloaded TIDA-01012 project and after quite a struggle, build the project on CCS 8.0, there is no demo board on sale for this project, I think the easiest way to try it is to run on the cc2650 launch pad. 

I don't have any clue how to change this cc2640 project to make it works on CC2650, I guess it should not be very complicated. could any expert give me some suggestion about how to port cc2640 project to a cc2650 board. 

Thanks, 

David Sun

  • Hello David,

    Thank you for reaching out to us, and considering Texas Instruments.

    Q: Is there any reason in particular that you want to use the CC2650 instead of the CC2640? Are you seeking to use multiple 2.4 GHz wireless standards in your application?

    Q: Could you describe which specific errors or challenges are you coming across? or Are you seeking for guidance to just get started?

    If you are seeking to do BLE/Bluetooth Smart, I would recommend to consider some of our newer options:

    • CC2640R2F is similar to CC2640 but with some of the BLE-STACK in ROM, allowing for more Flash to be used for your Application code.
      CC2640R2F Development Kit: LAUNCHXL-CC2640R2

    • CC2642R (currently in PREVIEW Status) - this is TI's next generation BLE device.
    • CC2652R (currently in PREVIEW Status) - this is TI's next generation 2.4 GHzMulti-Standard.
      CC26x2R Development Kit: LAUNCHXL-CC26X2R1

      Note: CC2640R2F and CC2642R will be Pin-to-Pin compatible in the bigger package option (7x7 mm)

    Using either CC2640R2F or CC2642R would enable you to use the SimpleLink™ MCU Platform SDK (Note: this is not avaiable for CC2640), which should make porting code between devices easier moving forward, the following video describes this platform:

  • Hello David,

    I wanted to add to what I mentioned above — the following would be my recommendations for the options I suggested on my first reply, but let me point you to the Texas Instruments BLE Wiki first , it has got tons of useful information and it is periodically updated:

    • In regards to using the TIDA-01012 Firmware, as mentioned in Page 54 of the TIDA-01012 Design Guide, uses BLE-STACK-v2.1.1, which can be found in the BLE-STACK-ARCHIVE folder, and that the latest stack for CC2640/CC2650 is BLE-STACK-v2.2.1, also available in the same folder.
      • Note that the BLE Stack 2.2.x SDK uses a new directory and file format from previous BLE Stack 2.1.x and earlier SDK releases. Existing applications developed with earlier SDKs require porting to this release. Refer to the CC2640_BLE_Software_Developer’s_Guide and online porting guide found on the Texas Instruments BLE Wiki.
      • BLE Stack latest version for CC2640/CC2650 is v2.2.2, however, the BLE Stack is currently at v3.x.x (at the time of this reply), but it is only supported on newer devices.

    • Should you decide to move forward with CC2640R2F, CC2642R, or CC2652R you can find instructions for the stack in the BLE-STACK folder.

    • Porting Guides are available in the Texas Instruments BLE Wiki, namely:

    Note that Section 3.2 "Getting Started with Firmware" on the TIDA-01012 Design Guide mentions the steps used in the design, should you have any specific questions about CC2650 / CC2640 / CC2640R2F / CC2642R / CC2652R, feel free to Open a New Question on the Bluetooth® low energy Forum.

    Hi Victor

    Thank you very much for giveing me this detailed instruction, it will take me weeks to fully understand what you said here. to answer your first question. I don't care it is the 2650 or 2640, or 2640R. I just want do a simple test of how TIDA-01012 works and see if there is any possible commercial opportunity. because there isn't TIDA-01012 evaluation platform for sale. I have to build a patch platform, there is no 2640 launchpad. so I hope to use a 2650 launch pad and add an analog front end ADC. of cause I can use 2640R to do the same thing. I am not very good at software, so I hope porting the TIDA-01012 project is straightforward.

    Have a nice weekend.

    David
