Texas Instruments Inc. announced the expansion of its SimpleLink Bluetooth CC256x portfolio with the addition of new modules and audio reference designs for rapid prototyping, development and production. These new solutions are Bluetooth 4.1 certified and include updates such as on-chip audio encoding and decoding as well as new Bluetooth low energy capabilities.

Now the SimpleLink Bluetooth dual mode portfolio will allow customers to create a range of innovative audio solutions for applications such as toys, Bluetooth speakers, audio streaming accessories, sports/heath fitness and more.

The new SimpleLink Bluetooth modules from TI are based on the CC2564 dual mode solution and include all components that allow it to be FCC/IC and CE certifications. Furthermore, the CC256x family has been updated with new on-chip audio processing allowing for SBC (subband coding) encode and decode to be offloaded from the external host. By keeping the audio path external to the host microcontroller (MCU), the solution allows a greater range of suitable host MCUs, driving down system cost and power consumption.

TI is making it easier to develop Bluetooth audio with any MCU such as ultra-low power MSP430F5529, MSP43055438 and Tiva C Series microcontrollers. Also, this platform is supported with the flexibility of multiple devices and tools.
