Connect any low-cost, low-power microcontroller (MCU) to the Internet of Things (IoT). Texas Instruments' CC3100 wireless networking solution is part of the new SimpleLink Wi-Fi family that dramatically simplifies the implementation of Internet connectivity. The CC3100 device integrates all protocols for Wi-Fi and internet, which greatly minimizes host MCU software requirements. With built-in security protocols, the CC3100 solution provides a robust and simple security experience. Additionally, the CC3100 device is a complete platform solution including various tools and software, sample applications, user and programming guides, reference designs and the TI E2E™ support community. The CC3100 device is available in an easy-to-layout QFN package.

Start your design with the industry’s first single-chip microcontroller unit (MCU) with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Created for the Internet of Things (IoT), the SimpleLink CC3200 device is a wireless MCU that integrates a high-performance ARM® Cortex™-M4 MCU, allowing customers to develop an entire application with a single IC. With on-chip Wi-Fi, internet, and robust security protocols, no prior Wi-Fi experience is required for faster development. The CC3200 device is a complete platform solution including software, sample applications, tools, user and programming guides, reference designs, and the TI E2E™ support community. The device is available in a QFN package that is easy to layout.
