Mouser Electronics is now stocking CC3235MODx SimpleLink™ dual-band wireless microcontroller modules from Texas Instruments (TI). Integrating a high-performance application processor, network processor, and crypto engine in a single chip with a rich set of peripherals, the CC, ISED/IC, ETSI/CE, and MIC-certified CC3235MODx modules are ideal for a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT), building automation, security, and health care applications.
TI’s CC3235MODx SimpleLink series modules integrate a 40-MHz crystal, 32.768-kHz RTC clock, SPI serial flash, RF filters, diplexer, and passive components, plus a network processor that runs all Wi-Fi and internet logical layers. The network processor subsystem completely offloads the host microcontroller and includes an 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio, baseband, and MAC with a powerful hardware cryptography engine.
The CC3235MODx devices feature new capabilities that simplify the connectivity of IoT applications. These features include 802.11a/n 5 GHz support, coexistence capabilities for radios in the 2.4 GHz band (such as Bluetooth® Low Energy), antenna selection, enhanced security with FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification, up to 16 concurrent secure TCP/IP sockets, and a certificate sign request (CSR).
The CC3235MODx modules are available in two variants: the CC3235MODS and CC3235MODSF. The CC3235MODS incorporates an Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with 256 Kbytes of application RAM, IoT networking security, and device identity/keys. The CC3235MODSF builds on the CC3235MODS and adds a user-dedicated 1 Mbyte of executable flash in addition to the 256 Kbytes of RAM. Both variants offer microcontroller-level security features such as file system encryption, user IP (microcontroller image) encryption, secure boot, and debug security.
The CC3235MODx modules are supported by the TI CC3235MODSF LaunchPad™ development kit. The kit includes a CC3235MODSF module, and features onboard emulation using XDS-110, and a suite of sensors for a full out-of-the-box experience and rapid development. The board’s 40-pin LaunchPad pinout enables designers to incorporate add-on boards from the BoosterPack™ ecosystem. Engineers can connect the board directly to a PC for use with development tools such as Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) Cloud and IAR Embedded Workbench.
