TI introduces the CC2567, the first dual-mode single-chip solution delivering ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity

Texas Instruments » CC2567

Texas Instruments Incorporated today introduced the CC2567 device, the first wireless, single-chip solution that enables direct short-range communication between ultra low-power, ANT+-enabled devices and commonly used mobile devices relying on Bluetooth® technology such as PCs, Smartphones and tablets. The industry's first dual-mode device, the CC2567 requires 80 percent less board area than a design with two single-mode solutions (one ANT+, one Bluetooth), enables simultaneous operation over a shared antenna with built-in coexistence, and increases the wireless transmission range up to two times the distance of a single-mode ANT+ solution.

The CC2567 device will be available as part of the new ANT+ Bluetooth Health & Fitness Aggregator Kit.

As the only supplier of ANT solutions for both sensor applications and mobile handheld peripherals, TI also announced today availability of a second evaluation kit, the CC257x ANT Network Processor Kit -- building out the company's ANT solution portfolio.

To date, the established ANT+ interoperable ecosystem offers an install base of more than 11 million devices that, for example, monitor heart rate, weight, speed, or distance data. Consumers then want to interact with that vital data on an endpoint device to develop and monitor health and fitness regimens. With nearly three billion Bluetooth-enabled endpoint devices -- like PCs, tablets or Smartphones -- on the market, direct communication with Bluetooth becomes the optimal wireless communication channel.

"TI's solution offers the best of both worlds: the leader in high speed wireless transport linking to the leader in ULP wireless sensor data collection," stated Rod Morris, Director, ANT Wireless. "This gives the consumer the ubiquitous solution they need to easily make health and fitness a part of daily life."

By incorporating TI's CC2567 solution into their devices, customers delivering monitoring products with ANT+ or endpoint products with Bluetooth can finally leverage the connectivity technologies' market adoption to create a truly wireless, cable-free end user experience. As a result, consumers will be able to engage with their vital data in real time without incurring a huge cost.

The ANT+ Bluetooth Health & Fitness Aggregator Kit

TI's CC2567 Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and ANT+ dual-mode transceiver is available via the CC2567-PAN1327, a highly-integrated class 2 HCI module with increased output power capabilities created by Panasonic. The module is included in TI's new ANT+ Bluetooth Health & Fitness Aggregator Kit, the first complete solution for ANT to Bluetooth connectivity development. The development kit includes:

  • (1) ANT UIF board - USB stick for sensor simulation
  • (1) C7 ANT module based on TI's CC2571 for sensor simulation
  • (1) PAN131xETU to build out the aggregator
  • (1) MSP430 experimenter board including the MSP430BT5190 device and 6 pin jumper to build out the aggregator
  • (1) eZ430 USB stick that enables Bluetooth connection to a PC

CC257x single-mode ANT network processor and evaluation kit

TI's CC257x ANT is a dual-chip sensor solution, combining the 2.4-GHz CC257x network processor and an MSP430™ microcontroller. The CC257x network processors are 2.4 GHz devices tailored for ANT sensor applications. The CC257x evaluation kit (ANTC7EK1) contains everything needed to quickly explore and develop with the CC257x, including the integrated ANT-FS feature. The evaluation kit consists of:

  • (4) CC257x modules (production type modules based on CC2571 with integrated F antenna)
  • (2) Battery boards that allow modules to be powered by a coin cell battery; also has a breakout header for interfacing to an external microprocessor
  • (2) EEPROM boards that enable users to test and evaluate the CC257x's embedded ANT-FS features
  • (2) USB User Interface (UIF) sticks that enable CC257x module connection to a PC
  • (2) coin cell battery

Pricing and availability

The ANT+ Bluetooth Health & Fitness Aggregator Kit is available for order. Pricing is $399 per kit. The PAN1327 module based on TI's CC2567 device is available for pre-order today from Panasonic. The CC257x Evaluation Kit (ANTC7EK1) is available at www.ti.com/ant
