Release Notes

Table of Contents


The SimpleLinkTM Sensor and Actuator Plugin/Sensor Actuator Interface Layer(SAIL) provides portable software modules to individual elements/components like temperature sensor, humidity sensors and other actuators like drives, buttons. The modules will be code compatible across CC2640R2, CC1310, MSP432, CC3220. It will be modular framework to offer extendable support for sensors and actuators.

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

Check the User Guide to get more information on the supported sensors in this release.

This is version 1_10_00_06 of the SAIL.


What’s New

Note: Currently the sail.lib library for supported platforms is prebuilt and available in package. The library is not automatically rebuilt on building the example. User can refer to Quick Start Guide on building sail library.

NOTE: There may be incompatibility in the Modules ( specifically PGA460 Module ) in the next SAIL plugin release version 1.20.00.
