Application Reports

    SimpleLink™ CC3x20 Wi-Fi® Internet-on-a chip™ Solution Built-In Security FeaturesThe SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3120 and CC3220 Internet-on-a chip™ family of devices from Texas Instruments offers a wide range of built-in security features to help developers address a variety of security needs, which is achieved without any processing burden on the main microcontroller (MCU). This document describes these security-related features and provides recommendations for leveraging each in the context of practical system implementation.
    Using Serial Flash on SimpleLink™ CC3x20 Wi-Fi® and Internet-of-Things DevicesThis application note is divided into two parts. The first part provides important guidelines and best- practice design techniques to consider when choosing and embedding a serial flash paired with the CC3120 and CC3220 (CC3x20) devices. The second part describes the file system, along with guidelines and considerations for system designers working with the CC3x20 devices.
