Start your design with the industry’s first programmable FCC, IC, CE, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ wireless MCU module with built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity. Created for the IoT, the SimpleLink™ CC3200MOD is a wireless MCU module that integrates an Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU, allowing customers to develop an entire application with one device. With on-chip Wi-Fi, Internet, and robust security protocols, no prior Wi-Fi experience is required for faster development. The CC3200MOD integrates all required system-level hardware components including clocks, SPI Flash, RF switch, and passives into an QFM package for easy assembly and low-cost PCB design. The CC3200MOD is provided as a complete platform solution including software, sample applications, tools, user and programming guides, reference designs, and the TI E2E™ support community.
The applications MCU subsystem contains an industry-standard Arm® Cortex®-M4 core running at 80 MHz.
The device includes a wide variety of peripherals, including a fast parallel camera interface, I2S, SD/MMC, UART, SPI, I2C, and four-channel ADC. The CC3200 family includes flexible embedded RAM for code and data; ROM with external serial Flash bootloader and peripheral drivers; and SPI Flash for Wi-Fi network processor service packs, Wi-Fi certificates, and credentials.
The Wi-Fi network processor subsystem features a Wi-Fi Internet-on-a chip™ and contains an additional dedicated Arm® MCU that completely off-loads the applications MCU. This subsystem includes an 802.11 b/g/n radio, baseband, and MAC with a powerful crypto engine for fast, secure Internet connections with 256-bit encryption. The CC3200MOD supports station, access point, and Wi-Fi Direct modes. The device also supports WPA2 personal and enterprise security and WPS 2.0. The Wi-Fi Internet-on-a-chip includes embedded TCP/IP and TLS/SSL stacks, HTTP server, and multiple Internet protocols. The power-management subsystem includes integrated DC/DC converters supporting a wide range of supply voltages. This subsystem enables low-power consumption modes, such as the hibernate with RTC mode requiring less than 7 µA of current.
