WiFi SMD Module - CC3000

The CC3000 from TI (Texas Instruments) is a self-contained wireless network processor that makes incorporating internet connectivity into your project simple. Instead of the more standard UART communication method, the CC3000 module utilizes an SPI interface allowing you, the user, to control the flow of data as you please. What makes the CC3000 unique is its ability to associate to a WiFi access point using a cell phone app in the Texas Instruments process called SmartConfig. This is a great module if you need to add wireless networking to your project!

The CC3000 is an IEEE 802.11 b/g compliant WiFi module with an embedded IPv4 TCP/IP stack with an SPI host interface at 16MHz. Each CC3000 requires a power supply of 2.9V - 4.8V with a max current rating of 92mA and is capable of connecting to WEP, WPA/WPA2 WiFi security Modes.

  • Supply Voltage: 2.9V - 4.8V
  • Host Interface: SPI @ 16MHZ
  • Throughput (TCP): ~4Mbps
  • IEEE 802.11 b/g Compliant
  • WEP, WPA/WPA2 (AES and TKIP - Personal) Security Modes
  • FCC, IC, CE, and TELEC Certified
  • 16.3mm x 13.5mm x 2mm

WiFi SMD Module - CC3000 Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
