TI announces the CC3000 SimpleLink Wi-Fi Module boosterpack for Tiva C Series and MSP430 MCU LaunchPads.

The TI CC3000 module is a self-contained Wi-Fi solution that enables
internet connectivity for a wide variety of embedded applications. According to the datasheet, the module includes a 802.11b/g integrated radio, modem, and MAC supporting WLAN communication as a BSS station with CCK and OFDM rates from 1 to 54 Mbps in the 2.4-GHz ISM band. An embedded IPv4 TCP/IP stack is also included.

The CC3000 is available from the TI estore for $35 including shipping.

    Expensive!

      lol
      it is way cheaper than an arduino wifi shield or any other wifi module.
      The TP-link routers can compete because of the large manufacturing quiantities.

  2. Nick says:

    Pretty slick ~$45 for both the LaunchPad and CC3000 module

  3. Federico says:

    I noticed that the post states that shipping cost is included in the $35 price for this boosterpack as follows:

    “The CC3000 is available from the TI estore for $35 INCLUDING SHIPPING.”

    Is that right?

    I checked TI’s site and could not confirm it.
