Texas Instruments has announced that it has demonstrated the world's first coin cell demo for the new Bluetooth low energy open standard based on its upcoming CC2540 single-mode, system-on-chip. Bluetooth low energy applications like sports and fitness equipment, mobile accessories, and home and office devices use coin cell and energy harvesting solutions to run for more than a year on a single tiny button cell battery.

The TI application supports both dual-mode and single-mode solutions and are optimized for low-power and low-cost applications. TI says that its device is packaged on a 6mm x 6mm unit including the controller, host, and application.

The benefits of TI's system include a one-chip integrated solution that reduces size and cost. The flash-based device enables firmware to be updated in the field and data can be stored on the chip. The low power consumption also allows the device to have a longer battery life using coin cells or alkaline batteries.
