Guide to the CC3100 SimpleLink Wi-Fi BoosterPack
Energia supports the CC3100 BoosterPack. The BoosterPack let’s you quickly incorporate Wi-Fi into your LaunchPad projects. Check out the tool folder (http://www.ti.com/tool/cc3100boost) for more information. The WiFi libraries are included in the Energia release.
This hardware is open source! Get the design files of the CC3100BOOST from TI.
|On some LaunchPads (MSP-EXP430FR4133, MSP-EXP430FR6989) not enough current gets sourced to the BoosterPack from the LaunchPad. To fix this, change the J8 Jumper to ‘LDO’ position instead of ‘MCU’ position. This should fix it. The use of the external power USB cable is not necessary in most use cases.
