Robust ICs implement reliable Wi-Fi 6 connections

Operating over a temperature range of -40°C to +105°C, SimpleLink CC33xx Wi-Fi 6 ICs from TI provide stable connections across more than 220 access points. These companion ICs work with TI and other companies’ MCUs and processors that support Linux or real-time operating systems, enabling wireless communication for such use cases as building automation, EV charging systems, and medical equipment.

The CC3300 is a Wi-Fi 6-only device, while the CC3301 is a combination Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth Low Energy 5.3 device. Both 2.4-GHz chips feature orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) and target wake time (TWT) to improve efficiency and conserve power. The SimpleLink parts also support Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security features, including WPA3 cryptographic technologies for personal and enterprise networks and secure boot with firmware authentication.

Samples of the CC33xx companion ICs are available in QFN packages, with prices starting at $1.60 in lots of 1000 units. Volume production is expected in Q4 2023. An evaluation board, the BP-CC3301, is available for purchase on TI’s website for $39.
