The TI CC256x device is a complete Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE HCI solution that reduces design effort and enables fast time to market. Based on TI’s seventh-generation Bluetooth core, the CC256x device provides a product-proven solution that is Bluetooth 4.1 compliant. When coupled with a microcontroller unit (MCU), this HCI device offers best-in-class RF performance with a range of about 2X compared to other Bluetooth LE-only solutions. Furthermore, TI’s power-management hardware and software algorithms provide significant power savings in all commonly used Bluetooth BR/EDR/LE modes of operation.
