SimpleLink™ Academy for Sub-1 GHz CC13x0 SDK

Below are the SimpleLink Academy modules associated to the SimpleLink CC13x0 Wireless MCUs.

SimpleLink™ Academy is a collection of curated training modules developed by TI subject matter experts to help developers get up and running as quickly as possible with a SimpleLink MCU device and its SDK. The trainings are delivered using TI Resource Explorer, which offers a powerful cloud-enabled environment that includes background information, interactive exercises, code snippets, quizzes & more. Each SimpleLink MCU & SDK is supported by SimpleLink Academy, and includes a collection of trainings that pertain to the feature set that is available on that given device/SDK. However many of the training modules are applicable & shared between all of the SimpleLink devices.

3. TI Drivers

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.   This device-agnostic approach provides easy portability of the application code across SimpleLink devices now and into the future.
