SimpleLink WiFi modules simplify IoT connectivity

Based around the TI CC3200 and CC3100 SimpleLink chipsets, two 2.4GHz IEEE802.11 b/g/n compliant wireless modules have been announced by Murata. The Type 1JP and Type1JQ modules, measuring 13.2x21.45x2.65mm, significantly ease incorporating wireless internet connectivity to a host of embedded applications and especially IoT designs.

Both modules have SPI and UART interfaces, 16Mb of Flash memory and a 40MHz clock. The module is constructed on a PCB with all matching components and a PCB antenna and the wireless transceiver and associated logic enclosed in a metal case. Peripheral interfaces include SPI, UART and numerous GPIO pins for attaching sensors and other devices.

The Type 1JP module (part code LBWA1ZZ1JP-928) uses the TI CC3100 chipset and attaches to a host MCU to control communication. The Type 1JQ (part code LBWA1ZZ1JQ-929) uses the TI CC3200 chipset that features a Cortex-M4 MCU and 256kB RAM, enabling it to operate as a complete 'host-less' application.

Both modules are pin-to-pin compatible and will remain compatible with later 2nd gen modules of Simplelink allowing customers to upgrade their designs without any hardware redesign. They are certified for FCC/IC and R&TTE tested for CE.
