    How to start with MFi

      Hello. Recently I received a certified Apple MFi. I'm going to produce HomeKit compatible accessories. Please explain to me the following:

      1. Bluetooth modules WICED series are compatible with MFi?

      2. Does the BCM20732 module is suitable for use with chip authentication 2.0C?

      3. Does the bluetooth module will be loaded after ordering the MFi stack?

      4. Does the MFI authentication chip will have to connect to the host or the system microcontroler bluetooth?

      5. Are there any ready-made solutions for the implementation of HomeKit

       

      thank you

          Hello Krzysztof,

           

          We will send you a private email to verify your MFI License

           

          While the HomeKit standard is still evolving, here a few comments:

           

          1. Bluetooth modules WICED series are compatible with MFi?

          • We will release a Development Kit in Q2 to support the HomeKit Platform

          2. Does the BCM20732 module is suitable for use with chip authentication 2.0C?

          • After verification of your license, we will share information with you on our MFI Private site.

          3. Does the bluetooth module will be loaded after ordering the MFi stack?

          • Don't understand your question - Our development kit will support the MFI library

          4. Does the MFI authentication chip will have to connect to the host or the system microcontroler bluetooth?

          • See #2

          5. Are there any ready-made solutions for the implementation of HomeKit

          • Our Development Kit will provide examples

           

          Thanks,

          JT

            Hi. Do you already know when you will be available for WICED SMART SDK with support for MFi?
