CC3200/3100MOD Breakout Board

a simple breakout for CC3200MOD or CC3100MOD

Similar projects worth following
After quite a long time, Ti finally have CC3200 and CC3100 module version.
And it's time to build a breakout for futher dev( although it seems that everyone is
dev wifi using ESP)

So this breakout can handle both CC3200MOD and CC3100MOD,

for CC3200MOD, I've add a CP2102 as UART to USB, hope can be use with energia .

(by the way, I forgot to add a switch for CC3200MOD boot from UART upload mode

to SWD debug mode on this version

and this breakout have all the pins on CC3200MOD, and breadboard compatible

( Although it cover almost all the rows

for the ANT, the PCB can use both chip ANT from TI's EVB or U.fl socket compatible ANT.

finally, the board has a LDO for power supply.

  • 1 × CC3200MOD/CC3100MOD wifi module
  • 1 × PCB Electronic Components / Misc. Electronic Components
  • 1 × CP2102 USB to UART IC

  • using Energia as IDE

    Energia supported CC3200 launchpad, and the upload method is using onboard FTDI chip

    to do the reset, since I hate FTDI, I'm not going to use the same chip on my PCB.

    but that makes this breakout can't auto reset.

    So the upload process become an old Arduino, after uploading then press reset, and it will upload program to CC3200, but the debug stage will fail, I'm finding a way that when CC3200prog.exe send a break signal, CC3200 will auto reset, hope I can do it with passive components rather then some atmega16U2 as UART to USB.

    So by using Uniflash to flash and energia to compile, I can now using CC3200.

    but the PCB have to do some modification

    first, adding a switch and two 2.7K resister to choose between UART Upload and Normal mode.

    second, adding a tact switch for reset function.

    the whole process is:

    1. Switch to UART Upload mode

    2. select the bin file

    3. click program, and when it tells to reset, press the reset for about 3 sec

    4. finish

    here is the example of AP mode.

    and Serial echo example in the SDK.

Nice one! I was looking for something "more" than an esp8266 / esp32. I've found something similar on aliexpress: and tried it out.

Hi, I have notices you changed the shape and size of the trace going to antenna. It is different from the one on the LAUNCHXL board. Did it affect RF performance in any way?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Will Whang wrote 02/18/2016 at 09:30 point

Yes , it will affect RF performace, not only I've change the trace & size

PCB layer also changed from 4 layer to 2 layer, definally degraded the performance

  Are you sure? yes | no

Still looks  pretty cool

  Are you sure? yes | no

sorry but I am not going to sell the PCB, but the files are on Github,

so you can make one for your self.

I think the current breakout board is adequate for CC3100MOD but not CC3200MOD

because of lack of reset button and auto reset.

  Are you sure? yes | no

I got two samples of each 3200 & 3100 thinking I was getting eval boards. Are your protoboards available to purchase? - Mike

  Are you sure? yes | no
