LS Research Announces TiWi-SL
LSR’s new TiWi-SL module offers customers an ideal avenue to quickly and simply integrate Wi-Fi connectivity on the full range of low-cost, microcontrollers (MCU)-based applications, including those in home automation, health and fitness, security and other markets. The module’s intelligent architecture is built in a way that moves nearly all functions required forWi-Fi connections off of the host processor and onto the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 solution itself. This speeds the integration of Internet capabilities on the embedded processor and simplifies the design process, making it easier to add Wi-Fi to an application, even without previous RF expertise.
“The launch of TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 offering reflects a major milestone in our commitment – together with partners such as LSR – to solving the challenges associated with the integration and certification of Wi-Fi technology on embedded applications,” said Eran Sandhaus, general manager, emerging connectivity solutions, TI. “With a solid history of building modules and supporting all aspects of customer design around TI’s connectivity solutions, LSR opens the door today to simplified, Wi-Fi-based designs with a full support model and product-ready TiWi-SL module.”
