Texas Instruments SimpleLink CC3000 Module Supports Headless Devices
Texas Instruments introduced the latest SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 module. The TI module features SmartConfig technology, which is a Wi-Fi configuration process that enables multiple in-home devices without displays to connect to a Wi-Fi network via a smartphone or tablet in one easy step. SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 pre-production modules are sampling now. Production modules will be available this quarter. The self-contained module is priced at $9.99 in 1,000-unit quantities.
The CC3000 module supports service discovery applications on phones, tablets and PCs using Bonjour zero-configuration networking technology. This makes it easier for consumers to quickly identify and manage networked devices. The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 module is compatible with low-cost, low-memory microcontroller (MCU) systems.
