Programming TI Products

  1. Nov 14, 2013 #1
    Hello guys,

    I am a little intrigued with TI's (Texas Instrument) line of products, especially the Bluetooth Low Energy chips that they have. I am working on a project (personal, not school) and all I need to do is program a TI CC2540 or CC2541 to control a basic DC motor (eventually, from an app on a mobile device).

    Since I am a total newb to TI, can someone give me a general idea of the road ahead?

    - What program/environment does TI use? Is it C or C++?
    - Do I need to purchase one of their kits to get going? Or can I just purchase the microcontroller and connect to it and start programming it (like I do with Arduino)?
    - Any advice, resources, or beginner suggestions will be appreciated
