Thank you very much @peekay123 for the clarification on the wiced front. That would be a great resource when it happens.
Also thank you to @mdma for the clarification on the TI question. (I have been reading through some of your firmware code for the past few days, Kudos)
The second part of my query however has been left unanswered. Maybe I need to clarify myself a little more. It is actually very basic set up that I am trying to figure out:
OK, assuming I want to make my own photon/P1, I need a BCM43362 and a STM32F205RGY6 on top of a PCB with the schematics and design described on the datasheet for Photon/P1 (that has been removed from the website, so I can’t accesss it now)
The firmware running on BCM43362 is factory flashed (and in anycase I wouldn’t imagine anybody trying to tweak a working Wi-Fi stack or would you?), so I assume it is the rest of the firmware loaded on STM32F205RGY6 that I need to run the FreeRTOS/wiced stuff (or ThreadX alternative) after cross compiling using toolchain makefiles.
While I find the contents of hal/src/photon/platforms/BCM9WCDUSI09/README.txt very intriguing, I have trouble figuring out why we need a USI WM-N-BM-09 or BCM9MWCD2WCDAD WICED module adapter, if the BOM is what I just described in the previous paragraph. In particular if someone could descibe BCM9WCDUSI09/ and BCM9WCDUSI14/ and their differences andrelationship with photon/P1 I would most appreciate it. I find the reference (mentioned in the aforementioned README.txt) http://broadcom.com/wiced/platforms/BCM943362WCD4/schematics/ just redirects to a generic IoT page!
Thank you in advance!
PS anyone know when the datasheets will be online again?
