Mouser Electronics is now stocking CC3235x SimpleLink™ dual-band wireless systems-on-chip (SoCs) from Texas Instruments. Integrating a high-performance application processor, network processor, and crypto engine in a single chip with a rich set of peripherals, the CC3235x SoCs are ideal for a wide range of IoT, building automation, security, and health care applications.
TI’s CC3235x SimpleLink series SoCs provide a network processor to run all Wi-Fi and internet logical layers. The ROM-based 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 CC3235x devices feature new capabilities that simplify the connectivity of IoT applications. These features include 802.11a (5GHz) support, Bluetooth® Low Energy and 2.4 GHz radio coexistence, antenna selection, enhanced security with FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification, up to 16 concurrent secure sockets, and a certificate sign request (CSR).
The CC3235x device is available in two variants: the CC3235S and CC3235SF. The CC3235S incorporates an Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with 256 Kbytes of RAM, IoT networking security, and device identity/keys. The CC3235SF builds on the CC3235S 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 CC3235x SoCs are supported by the TI LAUNCHXL-CC3235x LaunchPad™ development kit. The kit includes either a CC3235S or CC3235SF device, and features onboard emulation and 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.
