Connect any microcontroller (MCU) to the Internet of Things (IoT) with the CC3130 device from Texas Instruments. The SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi CC3130 Internet-on-a chip™ device contains an Arm Cortex-M3 MCU dedicated to Wi-Fi® and internet protocols, in order to offload networking activities from the host MCU. The subsystem includes an 802.11b/g/n radio, baseband, and MAC with a powerful crypto engine for fast, secure Internet connections with 256-bit encryption and a built in power management for best in class low power performance.
The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® CC3130 device dramatically simplifies the implementation of low-power, with the integrated Wi-Fi Alliance® IoT low power feature.
This generation introduces new capabilities that further simplify the connectivity of things to the internet. The main new features include:
- Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi 2.4-GHz radio coexistence (CC13x2/CC26x2)
- Antenna selection
- Up to 16 concurrent secure sockets
- Certificate sign request (CSR)
- Online certificate status protocol (OCSP)
- Wi-Fi Alliance certified IoT power-saving features (such as BSS max idle, DMS, and proxy ARP)
- Hostless mode for offloading template packet transmissions
- Network-assisted roaming
The CC3130 device is delivered with a slim and user-friendly host driver to simplify the integration and development of networking applications. The host driver can easily be ported to most platforms and operating systems (OS). The driver has a small memory footprint and can run on 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit microcontrollers with any clock speed (no performance or real-time dependency).
The CC3130 device is part of the SimpleLink™ MCU platform, a common, easy-to-use development environment based on a single core software development kit (SDK), rich tool set, reference designs and E2E™ community which supports Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® low energy, Sub-1 GHz and host MCUs.
