Renesas RL78 promo board meets TI CC3000 WiFi module

Posted on Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 in code, how-to, RF by the machinegeek


If you’re just receiving your Renesas RL78 promo board, here’s an article from the Renesas Rulz blog discussing how to interface it with the LS Research TiWi-SL based TI CC3000 WiFi board.

As the post points out, “The primary hardware issue is level conversion. The RPB is a 5V design and the CC3000 module operates at 3.3V. Communication between the modules happens via SPI. You must also use a linear regulator to power the CC3000 module from a voltage reference on the RPB.”

The WiFi module discussed herein is TI Part No. CC3000TIWISLEM and is available from their estore for $49.00.

NOTE: While the detailed post referred to by Renesas Rulz has been inexplicably deleted we found the complete project source code to go with the above schematic on the TI website.

    Well this is just blasphemy! :-P

    Renesas clearly uses inferior electrons to those found in TI’s devices.
