CC2640R2F: Does the CC2640R2F_SDK_4_10_00_10 support connectionless AOA?
Part Number: SIMPLELINK-CC13X2-26X2-SDK
I found from other threads and BLE5-STACK Release notes that ToF is not supported by TI.
Is there a possibility that ToF will return with SIMPLELINK SDK in the future?
(Is the position measurement only for AoA?)
We are very sad because we thought the ToF would be enhanced with the Simplelink SDK update.
As a supplier of Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) solutions we are committed to making available high quality software stacks with a focus on interoperability and broad market adoption.
In previous Software Development Kits (SDKs), TI introduced, on an experimental basis, a new innovative ranging technology called Time-of-Flight (ToF) together with our BLE Software Stack as a software example to demonstrate one possible option for new ranging technologies. This ToF example technology was based on a proprietary extension demonstrating operation between compatible TI devices only.
In this increasingly connected world, interoperability between different suppliers and systems is a critical value and TI listens to this market and customer requirement. Moving forward, TI has decided to merge our secure ranging efforts onto a standardized solution with focus on broad adaption and interoperability.
As part of this decision to focus on standardized solutions, TI has made the decision to discontinue further development and support of the TI-proprietary ToF and TI-proprietary Angle-of-Arrival (AoA) software examples in the SDKs listed below:
(*) Angle-of-Arrival software examples based on the Bluetooth 5.1 specification are not affected by this change.
We recommend to transition from proprietary Real Time Locating System (RTLS) software examples to the new RTLS software examples based on the Bluetooth 5.1 specification. These examples are included in the SimpleLink™ CC13x2 and CC26x2 software development kit 3.40 or later.
At the same time, we are placing an emphasis on creating a standard for secured ranging technologies and intend to convert the existing technology when these solutions become available.
For further information please contact your local TI sales representative.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Clément:
Thank you for your reply. AoD is also in the Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) ranging solution. Do you have any plans to focus on AoD?

You will understand that I cannot comment on TI future developments on a public forum.
Please contact your local TI sales representative to get more details on this question.
