    Shifting from PSoC Creator to Wiced Studio

    MrMa_286121

      Hi

      I have been designing extensively on PSoC creator using PSoC 4 and 5 chips. We are now starting with WiFi and IoT and I have PSoC-6 WiFi + BLE kit with me.

      Things are so unclear in Wiced studio. I have a few questions, please help.

      1. Does the CYW4343 chip have a TCP/IP stack?

      2. When we build a simple example project to say scan for WiFi network, does the IDE program the PSOC chip or does it program the WiFi chip, since even the WiFi module has a ARM M3 processor?

      3. How is communication happening between WiFi module and PSoC? (If at all PSoC is involved)

      4. All the examples are so platform-centric. How can I use PSoC-5 with the WiFi module. We need the analog features of PSoC5. Is it even possible?

      Please help me with a link of good documentations.

      Thank you

          Hi,

          1. Does the CYW4343 chip have a TCP/IP stack?

          --> The WICED Studio SDK supports TCP/IP stack implementation, be it LwIP, NetX or NetXDuo. Cypress provides this support in WICED not only for CYW4343 chip, but for all chips.

          2. When we build a simple example project to say scan for WiFi network, does the IDE program the PSOC chip or does it program the WiFi chip, since even the WiFi module has a ARM M3 processor?

          --> The IDE programs the PSoC chip.

          3. How is communication happening between WiFi module and PSoC? (If at all PSoC is involved)

          --> The communication is happening via SDIO lines.

          4. All the examples are so platform-centric. How can I use PSoC-5 with the WiFi module. We need the analog features of PSoC5. Is it even possible?

          --> The analog features of PSoC5 isn't available in WICED. You need to port the PDL of PSoC 5 if you want to use these features.

           

          Thanks
