Add Wi-Fi® to anything with TI's Internet on a chip

The new SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi family delivers the industry's first single-chip, low-power Wi-Fi solution with built-in programmable MCU designed for the IoT

DALLAS, June 16, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Today Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) introduced its new SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3100 and CC3200 platforms for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The SimpleLink Wi-Fi family is the first in a series of new easy, low power SimpleLink wireless connectivity solutions for the IoT. This new Internet-on-a-chip™ family allows customers to easily add embedded Wi-Fi and Internet to a wide-range of home, industrial and consumer electronics through features including:

  • The industry's lowest power consumption for battery operated devices with a low power radio and advanced low power modes.
  • Flexibility to use any microcontroller (MCU) with the CC3100 solution or leverage the CC3200's integrated programmable ARM® Cortex®-M4 MCU, allowing customers to add their own code.
  • Easy development for the IoT with quick connection, cloud support and on-chip Wi-Fi, Internet and robust security protocols, requiring no prior Wi-Fi experience to get a product connected. 
  • The ability to simply and securely connect their devices to Wi-Fi using a phone or tablet app or a web browser with multiple provisioning options including SmartConfig™ Technology, WPS and AP mode.

With a QFN package and fully integrated RF and analog, the CC3100 and CC3200 allow developers to create a low cost, compact and easy to use system by placing the device directly on a PCB. The SimpleLink Wi-Fi family comes with cloud connectivity support through TI's IoT cloud ecosystem members. TI also provides various kits and software tools, a certified TI module (coming soon), reference designs, sample applications, development documentation, and TI E2E™ community support.

Building on its MCU ecosystem of low-cost LaunchPad evaluation kits and BoosterPack plug-in modules, TI provides developers an easy way to design and evaluate Wi-Fi and Internet applications:

  • Get started using TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 solution with the first wireless connectivity LaunchPad evaluation kit.
  • The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100 BoosterPack plus the Advanced Emulation BoosterPack allows customers to connect to any MCU, including the ultra-low power MSP430™ LaunchPad.
  • If customers have not selected an MCU or want to get started quickly, they can begin software development with a PC and the CC3100 BoosterPack plus the Advanced Emulation BoosterPack using SimpleLink Studio.
