WICED leverages onboard Cortex-M based processors and is designed to work with all RTOS & TCP/IP network stacks. I believe it works out of the box with FreeRTOS or ThreadX, with FreeRTOS being the most popular.
SDK 3.3.1 supports the BCM43341 and the assocaited eval board.
The BCM4343W is a follow on device to the 43341 (minus NFC and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi only), and I believe it may be supported in the WICED SDK supporting Amazon Web Services 3.4.0-AWS, if not, SDK 3.5, which will be released soon.
The eval board for the 4343W is BCM94343WWCD1_EVB and it is available through many of our franchised distributors.
I just checked and it appears Avnet has 5 of them in stock through their online operation, Express: Broadcom BCM94343WWCD1_EVB, - Avnet Express
Avnet also has its IoT Starter Kit, which also leverages the 4343W and the WICED SDK, along with Amazon Web Services:Avnet Introduces the Avnet BCM4343W IoT Starter Kit Powered by Broadcom’s WICED and Amazon Web Services IoT
This may be a fit as well.
The Linux radio only modules fall under a different model in that they assume an external Cortex-A or equivalent type processor is being used (i.e. i.MX 6/7, Sitara) with a Linux based OS. The modules offered by our partners that support this radio-only Linux module are listed here in the back of the The specified item was not found.
I am not familiar with BCM4354 support being offered either in the WICED SDK or within any of the current Linux partner modules, but I believe there may be a few Linux Partner module makers targeting this device in the future.
Thanks for the reply, very helpful. We are planning to use an i.MX6SX processor. I have heard that Freescale (now NXP) is working with Broadcom to add i.MX6 support to the WICED SDK. Is this true? If so, what revision of the SDK would offer this and when would it be available?
Not sure about adding Linux support to the WICED SDK.
True that Freescale, through Broadcom module partners like Murata Wi-Fi/Bluetooth for Linux and Android, Laird Connectivity, Inventek Systems and others are enabling Broadcom silicon within their partner modules.
Just sent you a couple emails with various details on NXP i.MX6 and Murata modules. Once you have signed onto our i.MX portal, you can view additional details on existing support for i.MX6 platforms - including the SoloX. Regarding WICED solutions, I also copied one of my colleagues (Hiro Hyogo) who can support you on those queries as well.
