Getting Started
Please follow the on-line CC3100 Quick Start Guide to start using the CC3100 BoosterPack
development platform.
Please download the CC3100 Getting Started Guide to get started with your project
development.
2.1
Procedure to Upgrade from SDKv0.5.2 to SDK1.0
To upgrade from SDKv0.5.2 to SDK1.0, servicepack “servicepack_1.0.0.1.0” needs to be flashed on
CC3100. The Service pack “servicepack_1.0.0.1.0” is provided thru CC31xx_CC32xx_ServicePack1.0.0.1-windows-installer.exe downloadable from http://www.ti.com/tool/cc3200sdk. Please refer to
UNIFLASH Quick start guide on details of flashing
(http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/CC31xx_%26_CC32xx_UniFlash) the service pack

10 Errata
The following section covers known issues and performance limitations with CC3100 preproduction devices.
10.1 Hardware
10.1.1 Pre-regulated 3.3v to Pin 47
For preproduction devices connect an external pre-regulated 3.3v +/- 5% supply to pin 47
(VDD_ANA2). This adds 12mA average current and up to 100mA peak current over 20uSec to the
total system current at 3.3V.
The CC3100 BoosterPack version 3.3 already includes the correct supply configuration for the preproduction device and also adds a 10uF capacitor to filter the peak currents. No further action is
required.
The external 3.3V supply is not required in the CC3100 production device in which case pin 47
should be left not connected.
10.1.2 Power consumption increase
Power consumption of the CC3100 pre-production device in all active modes is 1-2 mA higher
compared to the CC3100 production devices

DHCPACK arrives to SL with invalid address in the DHCPACK params address field
