Getting to know the SimpleLink Wi-Fi family

Learn more about the Texas Instruments innovative SimpleLink family of IC’s and modules.

Introduction

The SimpleLink Wi-Fi family is the industry’s first Internet-on-a-chip™ solution offering Wi-Fi certified™ IC’s and modules allowing easy connectivity to the cloud. Optimized for battery-operated applications operating over two years on two AAA batteries. The devices offer enhanced internet & application level security with built-in programmability allowing development of an encrypted application layer on a single IC. Anyone, regardless of Wi-Fi experience, can connect to the internet.

Product portfolio

The SimpleLink Wi-Fi product portfolio offers two families of certified devices and modules

CC32xx: wireless microcontroller (SoC) with Wi-Fi on one chip

Wi-Fi network processor + integrated 80MHz ARM® Cortex®-M4 MCU with security and peripherals enabling fast application development.

CC31xx: add Wi-Fi to any microcontroller

IC with integrated network processor, on-chip web server and embedded TCP/IP stack that connects easily to any microcontroller.
