The new SensorTags jump start development for the Internet of Things (IoT) through features that include flexible development with multiple wireless connectivity options including Bluetooth low energy, 6LoWPAN and ZigBee available today based on the SimpleLink ultra-low power CC2650 wireless microcontroller (MCU). Also new are ten integrated low-power sensors with the industry's lowest power consumption for multi-year battery life; new DevPack plug-in modules that extend the kits' functionality and programmability; out-of-the box capabilities with a free iOS or Android app with no programming experience required to get started; the ability to connect to the cloud in less than three minutes through the company's IoT cloud ecosystem including IBM's Bluemix IoT Foundation; and available reference designs, including 3D print files of the SensorTag enclosures, that allow their reuse as a starting point for users' designs. The kits come with ready-to-use protocol stacks, free Code Composer Studio integrated development environment (IDE) license, online training and 24/7 online TI E2E community support. In addition, the company's cloud-based software development tools provide instant access to examples, documentation, software and even an integrated development environment (IDE) all from the convenience of the web. Both SimpleLink and Wi-Fi versions are available.
