Arrayent Announces Support for TI’s New SimpleLink Wi-Fi Wireless Microcontroller

Texas Instruments TI SimpleLink CC3220SF

TI CC3220 SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® LaunchPad™ Development Kit

We are delighted today to announce support for the new low-power, low-cost Texas Instruments SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3220 wireless microcontroller (MCU).

The new addition to TI’s CC3x20 family for customers developing Internet of Things (IoT) applications was announced today in conjunction with the Embedded World exhibition and conference in Nuremberg, Germany. The new microcontroller is built on a novel architecture that supports firmware and secure cloud communications on a single chip. It also includes embedded security features—such as secure storage, cloning protection, secure boot and networking security—to help protect IoT devices from intellectual property and data theft and other risks. Like the rest of the CC3x20 family of devices, the newest edition also lets designers create products that can be in production in six months and can run on two AA batteries.

As Arrayent CEO Cyril Brignone noted in his statement of support released by TI today, we are particularly pleased to extend our relationship with our long-time partner. “Arrayent and TI have been collaborating to bring IoT products to market since 2005.” In his statement, Cyril further noted the specific advantages available to our mutual customers: “By connecting the CC3220 solution to Arrayent’s Cloud Services, customers will realize product interoperability within key ecosystems like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Nest, IFTTT and more. We believe interoperability will be the key to creating compelling consumer experiences that will drive market growth.”

Arrayent software DevKits will include support for TI’s CC3220 Launchpad Development Kits.
