    • Advanced Emulation BoosterPack for SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100 BoosterPack

    Overview

    This advanced emulation BoosterPack™ plug-in module is an accessory for the SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3100 wireless network processor BoosterPack plug-in module

    This accessory can be used for:

    1. Flashing updates to the CC3100BOOST
    2. Using the CC3100 radio tool for RF performance evaluation
    3. Using SimpleLink™ Studio for CC3100 for MCU software development – PC tool, documents and example applications can be found in the CC3100 software development kit (SDK)

    This kit can be purchased in three configurations:

    1. CC3100BOOST + CC31XXEMUBOOST + MSP-EXP430F5529LP: run all software in the CC3100 SDK and develop on the MSP430F5529 MCU
    2. CC3100BOOST + CC31XXEMUBOOST: used for any CC3100 development
    3. CC31XXEMUBOOST: standalone kit for development separate from the CC3100 BoosterPack

    The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3100 solution provides the flexibility to add Wi-Fi to any microcontroller (MCU). This Internet-on-a-chip™ solution contains all you need to easily create IoT solutions – security, quick connection, cloud support, publicly available documentation, E2E support forums and more.

    -
    What are the functions of the two USB ports?
    J6 handles the SPI, GPIO, Network Processor logger output, and COM port for flashing purposes. J5 handles RT3 and the MAC logger. J6 is the normal connection to the computer while J5 is not connected.

    -
    Certain Launchpads are unable to provide enough power to the CC3100BOOST such that it requires a separate USB connection for power. Is a separate USB connection for power required when the CC3100BOOST is connected to the CC31XXEMUBOOST?
    No a separate power connection is not required. The CC31XXEMUBOOST can provide the required current to the CC3100Boost.

    -
    What is the Radio Tool used for?
    The Radio Tool is a program that allows the user to manually set the radio on The CC3100BOOST into transmit or receive mode via the software interface. The CC31XXEMUBOOST is required to use the Radio Tool.
