WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

When a project is compiled, Wi-Fi Firmware (ex. 43362A2.bin) has largest file  that the size is over 200KB.

Q1. Is this file offers binary format only?

Q2. How can I get down-size Wi-Fi firmware file? or Wi-Fi firmware file can be modified by user?

Hi,

This is a binary blob that goes in to the WLAN chip. WICED version 3.3.0 support exteranl WIFI firmware reading. Have a look at apps/snip/firmware_external to see how to move the firmware in external flash.

Hope this helps.

Bassem

Hi Bassem,

Thanks for your comment.

SDK 3.3.0 that you said hasn't yet been launched on Wiced download page.

When it will be released?

Thanks.

Hello, I'm trying to load the wifi firmware image from the external flash. How could I achieve this? The apps/snip/firmware_external directory does not seem to be present in WICED 3.3.0, 3.3.1 or 3.4.0 - do you know where I could find it?


Thanks.

Hi bdawood​,

apps/snip/firmware_external does not exist in any SDK version.

Hi gangi,

I'm looking for 3.3.0 SDK rather than 3.3.1. SDK.

I found some people are using SDK-3.3.0 on the forum but cannot find the place to download.

Can you point me where to get the SDK?

Thanks.

We released it to very few people to support certain HW which was not supported in 3.1.2.

Do you have a HW platform that is not supported?

There is no apps/snip/firmware_external folder at all in any of the releases from 3.3.0 so far.. at least from the releases that can be downloaded officially.. can i know from where i can get the same?

I saw the last question in this thread also asking the same, but left unanswered

Hello,

I am currently working on an application with a combo chip (Wi-Fi + BLE). I noticed that the chip firmware itself occupies more than half of the internal memory, and for this reason I am in short of memory.

A good solution can be storing this binary into the external memory, as it has been discussed previously in this topic.

You suggested a solution, but it seems that nothing has been released yet. What is the current status for this issue ?

Thanks !

SDK version : WICED 3.3.1

Microcontroller : STM32F415

Wi-Fi/BT chip : Murata Type 1BW (based on BCM43341)
