Cypress has created a flexible ecosystem which allows us to offer complete Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Linux solutions designed to address the evolving requirements of the embedded connectivity market.
Proprietary and Open Source Linux packages have now evolved which leverage our partner ecosystem and the Linux open source community.
Specifically, within the proprietary Linux support model, the CPU manufacture will provide the Linux Kernel, associated device drivers, evaluation platform and all necessary support for the same as part of a standard Linux release process. The production module supplier will then support the production Cypress based Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module which interfaces to the board via a connector, or resides directly on their intended development platform.
Conversely, the new Linux Open Source model enables the use of any host architecture and platform supported by kernel.org (en:users:drivers:brcm80211 [Linux Wireless]). By leveraging the open source community, the open source (example: Quick Start with FMAC Driver on iMX6 UVELK and Murata 1DX) driver will quickly become more stable and secure than closed-source alternatives, as a result of exposure to a broader audience and a broader set of use-cases. Finally, the integration of the open source driver will be facilitated by the open source community that is becoming more adept at supporting this process.
Lastly, here on the Community website we will provide SoC Datasheets, Manufacturing/Regulatory/Test documentation, Quick Start Guides and Help Articles designed to assist with integration of either models presented above.
To get started, please refer to the IoT Solutions Guide for a complete list of Linux enabled modules.
