Guide to the CC3200 SimpleLink WiFi (CC3200-LAUNCHXL)

Supported in Energia Version 13+, Energia MT capable

CAUTION — Analog input is limited to 1.46V on the CC3200. Higher voltages may damage the MCU. — Reference: §3.2 Drive Strength and Reset States for Analog-Digital Multiplexed Pins, CC3200 SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® and Internet-of-Things Solution, a Single-Chip Wireless MCU (swas032f).

The CC3200-LAUNCHXL has on board Wi-Fi to easily add a wireless connection to the internet. Use the Energia WiFi library to get online quickly and easily.  You can also make use of many community contributed libraries that utilize the WiFi library APIs.

NOTE ON VARIATIONS: There is also another board called the CC3200MODLAUNCHXL which works exactly the same but uses the module version of the CC3200. It is more expensive, so it’s usually better to use the CC3200-LAUNCHXL for evaluation purposes unless you need to test the module version.

Energia MT is supported for CC3200. You can make use of multi-tasking in your Energia sketches and automatically enter low power modes when idle. Learn more about MT!
