The TiWi-SL from LS Research, Cedarburg, WI, is a self-contained 802.11 transceiver module that provides easy wireless connectivity integration with an embedded system. The FCC/IC-certified and ETSI-tested module uses Texas Instruments' SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000 Wi-Fi wireless processor. The module contains the Wi-Fi driver, security supplicant, and TCP/IP stack and its architecture moves nearly all Wi-Fi connection functions from the host processor and onto the CC3000. Features include FirstTimeConfig that facilitates pairing to 802.11 access points without requiring a display or user interface, power consumption <5 µA in shutdown mode, low MIPS/CPU overhead, and a simple API.
