Regarding CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT, App. Note AN221774 indicates you can use both (in stages) to program a WICED unit. Everyone else (mainly Cypress support on forums) says it does not work, can't be done, etc. AN219434 says you can do it, but again the Cypress engineers in the forums say no. KBA225060 says that WICED programs the Bluetooth Modules, more or less stand alone.
Currently, Modus Toolbox does not support programming the PSOC 6 fabric with customer created components like PSOC Creator does. Modus Toolbox also does NOT support the CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT Psoc 6 Wifi-BT Pioneer Kit for WiFi. That project is unavailable, but other non-radio projects are supported. Therefore, it does NOT handle the same items that WICED does, even though one of the engineers in the forum says it does (or did they mean will?)
So here are my basic questions/comments:
1) Is the LBEE5KL1DX module separately programmable by WICED? If not, please update your KBA225060 to state that certain Bluetooth modules can't be programmed.
2) if you can program the LBEE5KL1DX separately using WICED, do you have a step by step for a Wifi for the PSOC 6 Wifi-BT pioneer kit that allows programming a separate PSoc Creator project into the PSOC 6? I guess I'm asking if the LBEE5KL1DX is ram based, or flash based.
3) If your documentation is correct and your engineers are working off of obsolete information, please create a step by step document to recreate the DEMO you ship with PSOC 6 WiFI-BT Pioneer Kit for using the combination PSOC Creator + WICED. It would be a simple, "Load this project, build", "import this, build", Program. (With nice pictures) If you cannot produce this , please update your documentation.
Why am I asking for this?
We are working in partnership with another company and want to take the WiFi-BT kit and put its components into a product that will be shipping hopefully soon. However, it looks like a different manufacturer's radio may be a better situation, because it is truly stand alone and can be communicated with by very simple methods. It appears to not require any changes whatsoever to be used as a WiFi Radio, as it is flash based. It may well be usable with a low power PSOC unit, and may be the way we have to go, depending upon your answers.
The reason we need the ability to use both WICED/Modus and PSOC Creator is the need to place some internally developed hardware components into our PSOC and also have access to the WiFi and Bluetooth radio. WICED does not allow users to create components. Neither does Modus Toolbox, really, but I suspect you could publish a create your own custom component guide, but the modus toolbox (which says it is up to date) does not support radios (WiFi or BT).
This has been very humbling on my part. I really pushed your products, and it is blowing up in my face. I currently look like a bad decision maker to my staff and our partner company. Any chance of face saving anytime soon?
