WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Hello,

We are using an FPGA system based on Spartan 6 for an imaging application.  This system is comprised of typical DCDC converters, Analog and Digital Grounds, readout electronics, DDR3 memory to store image data (will need to be updated at some point, and is within the scope of project) and USB to transmit the stored data.

Specifically, CYUSB3014-BZXI is the part which is currently in use.  We would like to upgrade from this USB to WIFI.  As we start to investigate this transition, some questions arise

  • Can you provide some documentation for making this transition, I would guess this might already be available, though I did not find much with a quick search?
  • Is there some part selection guide and requirements for WIFI?
  • I am currently using usblib0 for communication using python (using pyusb).  Can you suggest any python based libraries for interfacing with wifi protocol?
  • As we integrate this with FPGA design & layout, is there available some VHDL or verilog module for handling data pipeline.

Those are the questions for now.  Likely will come back with couple more

Thanks and warm regards,

Jerome

If you are moving from USB to WiFi you need to pay close attention to what transfer speed you need. You probably need at least 802.11 ac 433Mbps for imaging data. Keep in mind that the network overhead will impact the actual transfer rate.

For 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 433Mbps, you can use the following cypress development kit CYW954907AEVAL1F Evaluation Kit. It uses the Cypress CYW54907 embedded wireless system-on-a-chip. It is supported by Wiced, and there is a module version Type 1PS | LBWA1UZ1PS , Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
