Written by: Kimberly Kulesh

We are excited that the SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3200 wireless MCU has been selected as the winner of several prestigious awards for industry excellence. As a part of the latest generation of the SimpleLink Wi-Fi family, this Internet-on a-chip™ solution allows developers to easily add wireless connectivity to their designs with no prior Wi-Fi experience. Here are examples of a few of our awards:

Electronic Products: 2014 Product of the Year

Starting the year off with a bang, Electronic Products selected the CC3200 as one of recipients of the 2014 Product of the Year awards. In the publication’s feature article about our Wi-Fi microcontroller, the CC3200 was praised for its low power performance, on chip crypto engine and the network processor offloading the MCU. All of these features make this single chip solution “wonderfully easy to integrate into an IoT system.”

Electronic Design: Best Communications Product of 2014

Continuing the momentum, Electronic Design released their Best of 2014 award winners, where the CC3200 was named the best communications product of the year. Electronic Design also published an article about the Wi-Fi chip, highlighting its Wi-Fi CERTIFICATION™, ease of use and numerous vertical plays. The article advises, “if you are getting ready to jump on the IoT or M2M bandwagon, SimpleLink may be your best option.” We couldn’t agree more!

Additional accolades

The SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 took home a Zinnov Innovation award as the Potential to Solve Large Problems category winner. Additionally, the CC3200 was selected as a finalist in the Golden Mousetrap Awards. We couldn't be happier that the CC3200 has been recognized with these award wins and we’re incredibly grateful.
