Release Notes

Table of Contents


The SimpleLinkTM Sensor and Actuator Plugin/Sensor Actuator Inteface Layer(SAIL) provides portable software modules to indivdual elements/components like temeperature sensor, humidity sensors and other actuators like drives,buttons.The modules will be code compatible across CC26xx,MSP432,CC3220.It will be modular framework to offer extendable support for sensors and actuators.Developing examples for BoosterPacks will simplified on using modules of SAIL.

NOTE:The names SAIL plugin and SimpleLinkTM Sensor and Actuator Plugin are used interchangeably in most of the documentation

The current release of SAIL supports 7 modules across platforms CC3220SF_LAUNCHXL,MSP_EXP432P401R,CC2640R2_LAUNCHXL.

NOTE: BMI160 and BME280 source files and support files are reused from BOSCH Sensortech GitHub repository . There have been configuration changes made to these files.

This is version 1_00_00_09 of the SAIL.


What’s New

ID Summary
SAIL-144 IaR examples for CC2640R2-LAUNCHXL do not compile/link (using workspace). makefiles for the examples do work.
SAIL-143 opt3001 sensor example sometimes does not run on CC3220SF-LAUNCHXL. Hard fault is observed.
SAIL-136 IAR issue affecting examples(for IAR IDE) on MSP432. The .out generated can be loaded and ran from CCS IDE.
SAIL-133 bme280 example for freertos. The serial terminal output is incorrect(missing % symbol).
SAIL-129 Add CC1310 and CC1350 examples for each module
SAIL-127 Add an “empty” project as an additional example. This project can serve as base barebone project.
SAIL-114 Freertos based examples do not build in the CCS cloud
SAIL-96 CC3220SF alert tasks for TMP007 example and OPT3001 example do not get triggered
