      • 1. Re: How do I read the Wi-Fi firmware version?
        We will add an API for this in the next SDK.

         

         

        Until then, you can add the API manually as follows:

         

         

        Add the following API function prototype to <WICED-SDK-2.2.1>/Wiced/WWD/include/wwd_wifi.h

         

        /** Retrieves the WLAN firmware version
         *
         * @param[out] Pointer to a buffer that version information will be written to
         * @param[in]  Length of the buffer
         * @return     @ref wiced_result_t
         */
        extern wiced_result_t wiced_wifi_get_wifi_version( char* version, uint8_t length );
        

         

         

         

        Add the following API call to <WICED-SDK-2.2.1>/Wiced/WWD/internal/wwd_wifi.c

         

        wiced_result_t wiced_wifi_get_wifi_version( char* version, uint8_t length )
        {
            wiced_buffer_t buffer;
            wiced_buffer_t response;
            wiced_result_t result;
        
            if ( NULL == wiced_get_iovar_buffer( &buffer, length, IOVAR_STR_VERSION ) )
            {
                return WICED_ERROR;
            }
            result = wiced_send_iovar( SDPCM_GET, buffer, &response, SDPCM_STA_INTERFACE );
            if ( result == WICED_SUCCESS )
            {
                memcpy( version, host_buffer_get_current_piece_data_pointer( response ), length );
                host_buffer_release( response, WICED_NETWORK_RX );
            }
            return result;
        }
