Supported Processing Hardware  

The Clarinox software framework encapsulating the Clarinox wireless stacks supports a number of hardware platforms.



Clarinox first ported our framework onto ATMEL ARM7 chips in 2002. Since then, we have worked with many ARM chips including ARM 7/9/11 and Cortex-M3/M4. Clarinox is part of the ARM Connected Community.


Clarinox support Freescale i.MX6 / i.MX28 / i.MX31 / SABRE Lite / SABRE Auto / Kinetis K-Series.


Clarinox maintains a long history of experience with Intel products. Support is provided for Intel x86 and Intel Atom processors. Clarinox is a member of the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance.


Clarinox provides support for NXP variants of LPC18xx/LPC43xx MCUs.


Clarinox wireless stacks have been optimized for use with Renesas S7G2 ARM Cortex M4 microcontroller.


The Clarinox Koala EVM wireless development platform is based on the STM32F4-family of MCUs. Clarinox have extensive experience with STMicroelectronics platforms and participates in their partner program.

Texas Instruments

Extensive project experience with TI DSP, from TMS320: 55x, 59x, 67x, Dual and Quad Core, OMAP3 / OMAP4 / OMAP5 / Jacinto / DaVinci / Sitara™ 335x, Tiva™ TM4C129x. Clarinox has executed TI NDA agreements to enable access to more complete CPU datasheet, peripheral programming and application note documentation.


Clarinox has many years of FPGA experience and is a member of the Xilinx Alliance Program. The Xilinx MicroBlaze platform is supported.

Other Supported Hardware

Clarinox provides support across Altera, Analog Devices, BlackFin, ColdFire, MIPS, PowerPC and SPARC-LEON processors. Most applications are best suited to a 16 / 32bit CPU with 64KB RAM and 256KB FLASH.

The specific requirements of the application need to be considered. Clarinox provides porting services to enable support for additional hardware platforms. Clarinox software runs on BeagleBoard, Embest, Freescale, GumStix and Spectrum Digital -based evaluation boards.


Bluetooth Hardware

Clarinox is compatible with any Bluetooth radio via UART, SDIO or USB interface; CSR (BC - 02/03/04/05/06), Broadcom/Cypress (BCM2033 / BCM4329), Marvell 88W8887/88W8977/88W8997, MediaTek, Realtek 8761, TI WiLink 6/7/8 families, TI CC256x, Dialog Semiconductor DA14580/DA14581 and Qualcomm. Clarinox have successfully worked with many USB dongles featuring CSR, ISSC, Broadcom and Ericsson licensed radios.

WiFi Hardware

Clarinox supports the Marvell 88W8887/88W8977/88W8997, Realtek RTL8723/RTL8821, TI WiLink6 (WL1271 / WL1273), WiLink7 (WL1281 / WL1283) and WiLink8 radio chips via SDIO interface. These are combo radio chips featuring WiFi, Bluetooth, BLE and other wireless technologies.

ZigBee Hardware

Clarinox supports the TI CC2520 radio IC, compatible with IEEE 802.15.4.
