TI CC3200 LaunchPad Hardware:

The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad is an evaluation development platform for the CC3200 wireless microcontroller (MCU) with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. The board features on-board emulation using FTDI and includes sensors for a full out-of-the-box experience. This board can be directly connected to a PC for use with development tools such as Energia, Code Composer Studio™ Cloud integrated development environment (IDE) and IAR Embedded Workbench. This LaunchPad has driver support and a software development kit (SDK) with 40+ applications for Wi-Fi protocols, Internet applications and MCU peripheral examples.

Energia Software:

Energia is an open-source electronics prototyping platform to bring the Wiring and Arduino framework to the Texas Instruments MSP430 based LaunchPad. The Energia IDE is cross platform and supported on Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. Energia uses the mspgcc compiler by Peter Bigot and is based on the Wiring and Arduino framework. Energia includes an integrated development environment (IDE) that has it’s foundation in the Processing IDE (Processing→Wiring→Arduino→Energia). Energia is also a portable framework/abstraction layer that can be used in other popular IDEs. Professional engineers, entrepreneurs, makers, and students can all benefit from the ease of use Energia brings to the microcontroller.

Energia started out to bring the Wiring and Arduino framework to the Texas Instruments MSP430 LaunchPad.

Texas Instruments offers a MSP430, MSP432x, TM4C, C2000, CC32xx and CC13xx LaunchPad. The LaunchPad is a low-cost microcontroller board that is made by Texas Instruments. The latest release of Energia supports the majority of the LaunchPad product offerings.

Together with Energia, LaunchPad can be used to develop interactive objects, taking inputs from a variety of switches or sensors, and controlling a variety of lights, motors, and other physical outputs. LaunchPad projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on your computer (Host PC). You can also add wireless modules to enable communication over various types of RF including Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, Zigbee, cellular, and more. More details can be found in the URL: Energia
