CC3200 and the ATECC508A chip

ulsoulso Stockholm

How can I use the ATECC508A with my CC3200 board?

    No, you cannot.

    CC3200 uses its own network stack, and mbedTLS does not fit there. We talked to TI several times, asking them to add hooks to their stack to enable offloading crypto ops to the external chips.
    They said "go away, not interested, use our shiny new CC3220 chip, it has on-board crypto".

    So we went away.

    Ok. Then I just have to wait for mongoose-os to be ported to the new CC3220 then :)

  • SergeySergey Dublin, Ireland

    Haha :)
    It's not on our roadmap at this moment.
    Could you elaborate, why do you prefer TI over ESP32? It seems like ESP32 is superior .

    Much lower power consumption. Really quick wake-up from hibernate mode. Has a camera interface.

    ok, thank you @ulso !
