WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Cypress Support Community:

Does anybody know where to find documentation that explains how WICED works?

For example: where is the API document for WICED_RTOS ?

If WICED_RTOS works well, why do we need to have either ThreadX or FreeRTOS options ?

Where is the document or API for "socket io" functions ?

Where is the document that explains how to perform a TLS handshake ?

Where are the documents that assist with connections to Azure ?

There are many more questions, but let's start with these.

Thanks, Garry Anderson.

Hi

Does anybody know where to find documentation that explains how WICED works?

--> Unfortunately, there's no specific document that deals with this. If you face any issues during any implementation, do let us know and we will assist you.

Where is the API document for WICED_RTOS ?

--> There's a html documentation under /43xxx_Wi-Fi/doc called API.html

You should be able to find all API documentations under this.

Also this video course has a brief introduction to RTOS : https://www.cypress.com/training/wiced-wi-fi-101-chapter-3-wiced-rtos-features

If WICED_RTOS works well, why do we need to have either ThreadX or FreeRTOS options ?

--> WICED_RTOS is implemented based on either ThreadX or FreeRTOS depending upon the requirement. WICED_RTOS is not a separate RTOS.

Where is the document or API for "socket io" functions ?

-->You should be able to find the documents in API.html under Cypress WICED API Reference Guide->Components->IP Communication-> WebSocket

Where is the document that explains how to perform a TLS handshake ?

--> Unfortunately, there's no specific document from Cypress that deals with this. The standard TLS handshake procedure is what is implemented in WICED.

Where are the documents that assist with connections to Azure ?

--> Please do check out these Blog Posts : MQTT with Microsoft Azure Posting a Message to Azure IoT Hub

Thanks
