Part Number: CC3220SF

Hi,

I just downloaded the reference design documentation and technical material but I didn't find anything related to the software. Do I miss something? Or there is no software package downloaded on the page? Any possibility to retrieve the software?

Kind regards,

Massimo

For more than 30 years I've been involved in both the hardware and software design of embedded systems.
Even when I started to manage design teams and international projects -- including having both planning and budget responsibilities -- I also remained active in hardware and software design.
I would like my next project would be yours.

  • Hi Massimo,

    I don't see the SW on the page either. More so the documentation says it's in the design files but when I check it's not in there easier.

    Please give me time to track down the engineer and figure out what's going on. Will likely respond back tomorrow.

  • Hello,

    I have tracked down and reached out to the owners of the TI design. Waiting for response.

    Exactly.

    Thanks,

    Hello Massimo,

    Apologies for the delay. The owners mentioned the TI design uses some examples from SimpleLink academy. Seems to me like the TI design is more to illustrate device features that would appeal to the grid sector rather than demonstrate with SW.

    I've asked them to send me the example regardless but waiting for a response still.

    In the mean time, what exactly are you trying to do so I can point you in the right direction?

    Hello Jesu,

    my interest born after reading this part of the description: "The design enables  the capability to setup a Wi-Fi network or connect to an external network, transfer data and optimize power. Data transfer scheme includes sending/receiving control, status, settings, firmware updates over the air between devices or to the cloud. Switching the device between always connected, intermittently connected, and hibernate mode optimizes power consumption for grid applications."

    Another point I am interested too (that is not related to the application note) is about how connecting to different MQTT brokers with the same MQTT client as TI MQTT  implementation or IBM-Paho implementation. I mean that the same application may choose to connect to AWS or IBM-Watson or Microsoft Azure and so on.

    Hi Massimo,

    Before I get into the SW specifics so you can test/run these features for yourself please make sure you have followed the getting started guide to get setup. 

    To learn how to setup a WiFi network (AP mode) or connect to one (station mode) the "network_terminal" example in the SDK is a good place to start. This application has a CLI that allows you to use commands like wlan_ap_start to configure and start an network as well as wlanconnect to connect to an external network.

    You can find a tutorial for the "network_terminal" on SimpleLink academy here

    For over the air (OTA) we also have a "cloud_ota" example along with a SimpleLink academy tutorial here.

    For power consumption our "power_measurement" example provides a CLI to configure the power mode you wish to use.

    Regarding MQTT we have examples for all the mentioned cloud platforms here. You can only have one MQTT client at a time. 

    These examples should allow you to setup and run most of these features with little effort.

    I know this is a lot of information. If you have need more details or have any questions let me know.

    Jesu

    Hi Massimo,

    Our programmers guide is also a great resource when you want to write an application of your own or understand better how certain features or functions work.

    Hi Jesu,

    I am already working with CC32xx MCUs and modules and I know the docs you pointed to me, thanks.

    I already read and know it, thanks.
