SimpleLink™ Wireless MCU-Based Thermostat Reference Design


Creating a low-power, connected MCU-based smart thermostat that links a variety of sensors securely to the cloud that enables remote monitoring and control is the goal of most smart thermostat designers. The TIDM-1020 provides software reference for the implementation of a smart thermostat, using the CC3220 as the primary microcontroller with Wi-Fi® connectivity. The design is a reference design for thermostat end equipment developers, engineers, and system evaluators. The design provides the reference code to demonstrate integration of the CC3220SF into a variety of analog and digital sensors, cloud connectivity services, HMI (Human Machine Interface), PIR (passive Infrared sensor), and external relay controls. The reference design is also aimed at showcasing the low-power connection to the internet/cloud, remote control and programming, remote monitoring of the data, and secure Over-The-Air (OTA) update of the device and application firmware.
