DALLAS, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To further support the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced support of the Thingsquare Mist IoT open source firmware for select TI hardware platforms for connected home automation products, connected lighting, and smart city projects. For maximum scalability, manufacturers can select from several TI IP/6LoWPAN solutions including the sub-1 GHz CC1101 or CC1120 radio frequency (RF) transceiver combined with an ultra-low power MSP430™ microcontroller (MCU) or the CC2538 system-on-chip (SoC) with integrated ARM® Cortex™ M3, RF transceiver and memory. Building on well-known open source components, Thingsquare Mist is a game-changing, lightweight and proven software system that brings true Internet connectivity to the IoT.
