This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

TEXAS INSTRUMENTS CC3130 SimpleLink Wi-Fi Wireless Network Processor

Texas Instruments CC3130 SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi Wireless Network Processor is an Internet-on-a-chip™ device that can connect any MCU to the IoT. 

The CC3130 includes an Arm Cortex-M3 MCU to run Wi-Fi and internet protocols, offloading these tasks from the host MCU, as well as a rich set of IoT security features to keep data secure. The integrated 2.4GHz radio supports 802.11 b/g/n and offers multiple coexistence modes for use with BLE or other 2.4GHz radios. 

The CC3130 also has a power management subsystem to operate from a wide range of supply voltages and support low power modes. It interfaces to the host over SPI or UART and includes a user-friendly host driver with a small memory print for use on 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit MCUs at any clock speed.
