Upcoming Features BIOS7 and TI CLANG

We are excited to announce new upcoming features being supported in the CC13x2 and CC26x2 SDK.

Between the July-2021 (5.20.00) and the July-2022 SDKs(6.20.00) TI will be releasing significant improvements to this SDK by supporting the new TI Clang compiler and TI-RTOS / SYS/BIOS 7.0.0 (BIOS7) update.

We recommend customer who are starting new development programs to leverage the latest available RTOS and compiler technology when available.

What to expect in this SDK roadmap:

Compiler Timeline

Version Date TI ARM-CGT TI Clang
5.20.00 July-2021 Full example and library support. Recommended production compiler. Prototyping and build support for most examples and devices.
5.30.00 - 6.10.00 Sept-2021 - April-2022 No new examples added. Production support still in SDK. Production support transitionally available per SDK Component.
6.20.00 July-2022 TI ARM-CGT examples and libraries removed from the SDK. Production support available for entire SDK.

RTOS Timeline
