The CC3100 SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® solution provides the flexibility to add Wi-Fi to any microcontroller (MCU). This user guide explains the various configurations of the CC3100 hardware BoosterPack™. This internet on a chip solution contains everything that you need to easily create IoT solutions – security, quick connection, cloud support and more. The CC3100 BoosterPack can be used in several ways. First, it can be connected to a TI MCU LaunchPad (software examples provided for MSP-EXP430F5529LP). Second, it can be plugged into a CC31XXEMUBOOST1 board and connected to a PC for MCU emulation. Finally, it can be connected onto an adapter board (MCU-ADAPT), which allows customers to use CC3100BOOST with additional platforms beyond TI LaunchPads.
This kit comes in three configurations:
CC3100BOOST + CC31XXEMUBOOST + MSP-EXP430F5529LP – Able to run all software in SDK, and develop on MSP430F5529 MCU.
CC3100BOOST + CC31XXEMUBOOST – Used for any CC3100 development.
CC3100BOOST – If extra CC3100 BoosterPacks are needed, and the user already has CC31XXEMUBOOST.
NOTE: 1 CC31XXEMUBOOST is an advanced emulation board that is required for flashing CC3100BOOST, using the radio tool (Radio performance testing or putting into certification modes), and for doing networking processing logs for advanced debug.
NOTE: The antennas used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm from all people and must not be co-located or operate in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
