8 Product and Documentation Support

8.1 Development Support

TI offers an extensive line of development tools, including tools to evaluate the performance of the processors, generate code, develop algorithm implementations, and fully integrate and debug software and hardware modules. The tool's support documentation is electronically available within the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

The following products support development of the CC3100MOD applications:

Software Development Tools: Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE): including Editor C/C++/Assembly Code Generation, and Debug plus additional development tools Scalable, Real-Time Foundation Software (DSP/BIOS™), which provides the basic run-time target software needed to support any CC3100MOD application.

Hardware Development Tools: Extended Development System (XDS™) Emulator

For a complete listing of development-support tools for the CC3100MOD platform, visit the Texas Instruments website at www.ti.com. For information on pricing and availability, contact the nearest TI field sales office or authorized distributor.

8.1.1 Firmware Updates

TI updates features in the service pack for this module with no published schedule. Due to the ongoing changes, TI recommends that the user has the latest service pack in his or her module for production. To stay informed, sign up for the SDK Alert Me button on the tools page or www.ti.com/tool/cc3100sdk.

8.2 Device Nomenclature

To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of the CC3100MOD and support tools (see Figure 8-1).

8.5 Electrostatic Discharge Caution


This integrated circuit can be damaged by ESD. Texas Instruments recommends that all integrated circuits be handled with appropriate precautions. Failure to observe proper handling and installation procedures can cause damage.

ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure. Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.

8.6 Export Control Notice

Recipient agrees to not knowingly export or re-export, directly or indirectly, any product or technical data (as defined by the U.S., EU, and other Export Administration Regulations) including software, or any controlled product restricted by other applicable national regulations, received from Disclosing party under this Agreement, or any direct product of such technology, to any destination to which such export or re-export is restricted or prohibited by U.S. or other applicable laws, without obtaining prior authorization from U.S. Department of Commerce and other competent Government authorities to the extent required by those laws.
