Common software Description
SimpleLink Wi-Fi starter pro The SimpleLink Wi-Fi Starter Pro mobile App is a new mobile application for SimpleLink provisioning.
Wi-Fi provisioning Wi-Fi provisioning is the process of connecting a new Wi-Fi device (station) to a Wi-Fi network (access point). This process involves loading the station with the network name (SSID) and its security credentials. TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi family offers the most flexibility for provisioning options including Access Point Mode, WPS, TI's SmartConfig technology and others.

Wireless network processor Devices Description
CC3100 software development kit and firmware


The CC3100 SDK contains drivers, many sample applications for Wi-Fi features and Internet and documentation needed to use the CC3100 Internet-on-a-chip™ solution. This SDK can be used with TI’s MSP-EXP430F5529LP LaunchPad kit or SimpleLink Studio, a PC tool that allows MCU development with CC3100. You can also use the SDK as example code for any platform.
All sample applications are supported via Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) and on RTOS. Some applications are supported via IAR.

Wireless MCU Devices Description
CC3200 software development kit and firmware


The CC3200 SDK contains drivers for the integrated programmable MCU, 40+ sample applications for Wi-Fi features, internet applications, and peripheral functions with associated documentation needed to use the solution. This SDK can be used with the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU evaluation boards.
All sample applications are supported on the integrated Cortex®-M4 with Code Composer Studio IDE and on RTOS. Some applications support IAR, GCC, TI RTOS and free RTOS
