also be made available. In addition, designers
are given many options to ensure Internet connection in headless applications. Flexible connection methods (provisioning) include Access
Point Mode, WPS, SmartConfig™ Technology
and others. On the security side, an embedded
hardware cryptography engine allows establishing TLS secure Link in 200ms.
Interfacing to any MCU, designed with lowpower radio and advanced low-power modes,
the SimpleLink Wi-Fi family makes sensor-tothe-cloud connectivity possible. Moreover, the
solution contains several Internet protocols
in ROM including mDNS, DNS, SSL/TLS and
HTTP server. There are also several wireless
applications such as instant messaging, email
and more. The SimpleLink Wi-Fi family enables
easy implementation of Internet applications
such as service discovery, email, instant messaging, and security.

Wi-Fi® Network Processor
The CC3100 device is a Wi-Fi, self-contained
network processor with on-chip web server and
embedded TCP/IP stack that connects easily
to any low-cost and low-power microcontroller
(MCU) such as the MSP430F552, thanks to a
simple UART or SPI driver and host memory
footprint as low as 7kB of code to reside on
the MCU. Hardware design is made easy for
space-constrained boards with a small 64-pin
9×9 mm QFN package. Certified m

Fast Parallel
integrates a high-performance 80-MHz ARM®
Cortex®-M4 MCU and peripherals allowing
customers to develop their application with a
single device. Developers can fully access the
MCU portion with 200kB of application code
available fully independent from the Wi-Fi
processing. The peripheral set includes parallel
camera, I2S ­audio, SDMMC, ADC, SPI, UART,
I2C, PWM, I/Os, built-in power management
and RTC enabling many MCU embedded applications to connect to the cloud.
Software and Support
Both CC3100 and CC3200 devices are supported by a software development kit (SDK)
including software drivers, sample applications, API guide, user documentation and a
world-class support E2E™ community. On the
integrated Cortex-M4, all sample applications
in the SDK are supported with Code Composer
Studio™ Integrated Development Environment
and no RTOS. In addition, a few of the applications support IAR, GCC, Free RTOS, TI-RTOS.
Categories of applications are outlined below:
• Internet-on-a-chip sample applications
•Email from SimpleLink Wi-Fi solution
•Information Center – get time and weather
from Internet
•http server – host a web page on
­SimpleLink Wi-Fi solution
•XMPP – Instant Message chat client
•Serial interface
• Wi-Fi sample apps
•Easy Wi-Fi configuration
•Station, AP modes
•Security – Enterprise/Personal, TLS/SSL
• MCU peripheral samples apps

Growing cloud of ecosystem partners
The TI IoT cloud ecosystem helps manufacturers using TI technology to easily and rapidly connect more to the IoT. Open to cloud service providers
with a differentiated service offering and value-added services running on one of TI’s IoT solutions, the TI cloud ecosystem provides options to meet
individual manufacturer needs.
SimpleLink Studio: Add CC3100 SimpleLink Wi-Fi to any MCU
SimpleLink Studio for CC3100 is a Microsoft Windows®-based software tool to aid in the development of embedded networking applications and
software tool for MCUs. Using SimpleLink Studio for CC3100, embedded software developers can develop and test applications using any desktop IDE,
such as Visual Studio or Eclipse; this allows the code to be easily tested while it is under development, and then later ported to an MCU without having to
be modified. Developers can then connect their applications to the cloud using the CC3100 BoosterPack.
SimpleLink™ Studio
• Use your PC as a host processor
for application development
• Short development cycle
• Easy debug
• Accelerate development on
any MCU
