CC3100 WiFi BoosterPack
Where the CC3200 includes the WiFi radio and a Cortex-M4 MCU on the same chip, the CC3100 only features the WiFi radio, and thus requires an external MCU.
The CC3100 BoosterPack is a great add-on for IoT projects and runs on virtually any LaunchPad. Connection between the CC3100 and the MCU is carried out through SPI. Energia provides the WiFi library.
The update of the CC3100 firmware requires another board, the Advanced Emulation BoosterPack for SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3100 BoosterPack™ plug-in module.
