Kickstart Internet of Things development with TI's new SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3000 BoosterPack
$35 CC3000 module-based BoosterPack works with both MSP430™ and Tiva™ C Series LaunchPad evaluation kits for fast time to market of new Wi-Fi designs
DALLAS, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To help professional engineers, hobbyists and university students kickstart the development of Wi-Fi-enabled Internet of Things (IoT) applications, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced the SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3000 BoosterPack. The new Wi-Fi BoosterPack is powered by the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 module from TI, which offers simplified Wi-Fi connectivity for microcontroller (MCU) -based systems. Working with both the MSP430™ and Tiva™ C Series MCU LaunchPad evaluation kits, the CC3000 BoosterPack (CC3000BOOST) quickly gets designs started for a wide variety of MCU-based home automation, health and fitness and machine to machine (M2M) applications. For more information see www.ti.com/cc3000boost.
Since the new BoosterPack is based on TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 module, it benefits from features including reduced development time, lower manufacturing costs, less board space, easier certification, and minimal required RF expertise. Armed with TI's unique SmartConfig™ technology, the new SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 BoosterPack allows for one-step activation of multiple in-home, headless devices to get them quickly connected to the Wi-Fi network.
