Texas Instruments Inc. debuts the SimpleLink family of wireless connectivity technologies for low-power, low-cost embedded applications with the introduction of the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 network processor.

The product family includes self-contained wireless processors that are designed to facilitate easy integration with any embedded system, pushing forward the development of the Internet of things.

The self-contained 802.11 network processor features TCP, UDP and IP on chip, uses only 0.5 per cent of the resources as compared to traditional Wi-Fi, with as low as 6KB Flash, 3KB RAM software footprint, plus standard software APIs. These enable designers to connect applications to the Internet even without networking "know-how." It runs on any low-cost MCU without any need for an OS, and integrates within hours with any new or existing embedded application.

It is a self-contained, RF-certified module compliant with the FCC, IC and ETSI standards for use in the United States, Canada and Europe that designers can add to a PCB even if they have no RF expertise.

It supports TI's FirstTimeConfig technology to facilitate easy pairing to 802.11 access point without the need of a display or user interface.

Also, the company's turnkey development kit based on TI's MSP430 FRAM MCU enables quick start with TI E2E Web support and online documentation, including comprehensive porting guides and sample code.
