Mouser Electronics is now stocking CC3235x SimpleLink dual-band wireless systems-on-chip (SoCs) 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 CC3235x SoCs are ideal for a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT), building automation, security, and health care applications.
TI’s CC3235x SimpleLink series SoCs, available from Mouser Electronics, 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.
