Texas Instruments MCU LaunchPad Sensor Tag Kit

Texas Instruments’ CC1352R Wireless MCU LaunchPad Sensor Tag Kit integrates sensing, wireless connectivity, and easy-to-use software for prototyping connected applications. The kit is based on the CC1352R multi-band wireless MCU, which features a 48MHz Arm Cortex-M4F processor, an ultra-low-power sensor controller, and concurrent multi-band, multi-protocol operations for Sub-1GHz and 2.4GHz connections through a dedicated Arm Cortex-M0 radio controller. 

The board can operate from AAA or CR2032 batteries and also offers four low-power environmental and motion sensors, with the option to add more using TI BoosterPacks or other components.

TI offers an SDK, multiple software examples, and the SimpleLink starter mobile app to support rapid development using the kit.
