New SimpleLink Wi-Fi® Family

The SimpleLink Wi-Fi family has upgraded and expanded its offerings since the introduction of the CC3000. Development is now faster and easier with the CC3100 and CC3200 Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ chips.

TI offers embedded Wi-Fi chips and Wi-Fi modulesfor any design.


The TI CC3000 module is a self-contained wireless network processor that simplifies the implementation of Internet connectivity. TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi solution minimizes the software requirements of the host microcontroller (MCU) and is thus the ideal solution for embedded applications using any low-cost and low-power MCU.

The TI CC3000 module reduces development time, lowers manufacturing costs, saves board space, eases certification, and minimizes the RF expertise required. This complete platform solution includes software drivers, sample applications, API guide, user documentation, and a world-class support community.
