This training covers the fundamental design techniques required to implement a successful capacitive sensing hardware design. This series will explore a number of design topics, including: Basic layout guidelines overlays, back lighting; Dealing with moisture; Self capacitance sensors; Mutual capacitance sensors; and Proximity sensors.
In-field firmware updates are becoming an increasingly popular feature supported on products that are deployed to the field; however, this feature is also very commonly exploited by attackers, and if vulnerable, can compromise the security of the system.
The SimpleLink™ SDK features POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface), which is a family of standards specified by the IEEE Computer Society for maintaining compatibility between operating systems. Through POSIX-compliant APIs, developers can maintain 100% application code portability between various OS/kernels.
The CC13x0 wireless MCU features an integrated radio, which can be programmed to support various protocols. The CC1310 device features a sub-GHz RF radio, while the CC1350 device features a dual-band radio capable of both sub-GHz and 2.4GHz.
The SimpleLink SDK includes TI Drivers, a robust set of intuitive, functional APIs that offer portable, feature-rich access to peripherals. The TI Drivers API exposes the functionality of the hardware-specific drivers in the same way across all TI SimpleLink devices, giving developers portable, feature-rich access to a variety of peripherals. TI drivers are open source [Berkeley Software Distribution license (BSD)] and built on a hardware abstraction layer, offering full access to the device’s complete capability.
The SimpleLink CC13x0 SDK includes the TI 15.4-Stack software, providing an IEEE 802.15.4e/g-based star topology networking solution for Sub-1 GHz band, along with a large set of proprietary RF examples for Sub-1 GHz based on the RF driver through the EasyLink RF abstraction layer.
