TI offers an extensive line of development tools. Tools and software to evaluate the performance of the device, generate code, and develop solutions are listed in this section.
SimpleLink Studio for CC3120R is a Windows®-based software tool used to aid in the development of embedded networking applications and software for microcontrollers. Using SimpleLink Studio for CC3120R, embedded software developers can develop and test applications using any desktop IDE, such as Visual Studio or Eclipse, and connect their applications to the cloud using the CC3120R BoosterPack™ Plug-in Module. The application can then be easily ported to any microcontroller. With the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3120R solution, customers now have the flexibility to add Wi-Fi to any microcontroller (MCU). This Internet-on-a-chip solution contains all you need to easily create IoT solutions: security, quick connection, cloud support, and more. For more information on CC3120R, visit SimpleLink Wi-Fi Solutions.
The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3220 SDK contains drivers for the CC3220 programmable MCU, 30+ sample applications, and documentation needed to use the solution. The SDK also contains the flash programmer, a command line tool for flashing software, configuring network and software parameters (SSID, access point channel, network profile, and so on), system files, and user files (certificates, web pages, and so on). This SDK can be used with TI’s SimpleLInk Wi-Fi CC3220 LaunchPad™ development kit.
The SDK has a variety of support offerings. All sample applications in the SDK are supported on the integrated Cortex-M4 processor with CCS IDE and no RTOS. In addition, a few of the applications support IAR, Free RTOS, and TI-RTOS.
TI Designs and Reference Designs
The TI Designs Reference Design Library is a robust reference design library spanning analog, embedded processor, and connectivity. Created by TI experts to help you jumpstart your system design, all TI Designs include schematic or block diagrams, BOMs, and design files to speed your time to market.
To designate the stages in the product development cycle, TI assigns prefixes to the part numbers of the CC3120R device and support tools (see Figure 7-1).

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.
