WICED® Wi-Fi™ 101 - Chapter 2: WICED Studio Introduction and WICED MCU Peripherals

By the end of Chapter 2, you'll know the basic ins and outs of our WICED IDE. In this Chapter, we're diving into the technology and expanding on the CYW943907AEVALF1 Evaluation Kit with the WICED environment. You'll be going through exercises including surveying the WICED ecosystem, using the MCU peripherals, exploring the WICED library, and more!

In the Introduction video for WICED® Wi-Fi® 101 Lesson 2, you’ll hear from our IoT expert Alan Hawse. To create an IoT device you need to be able to do two things: (1) read and write data from/to the physical world (e.g. read sensor data, write to a display); and (2) send and receive the data to/from the cloud. Lesson 2 focusses on the 1st task while the 2nd task will be covered in future lessons.

In this video, Lesson 2-1 of the WICED® Wi-Fi® 101 course, Alan Hawse walks you through the platform directory in our WICED studio IDE. The platforms in WICED studio contain the board support package – in other words, everything you’ll need to be successful in programming a kit or your custom board from WICED Studio.

In the next lesson of our WICED® Wi-Fi® 101 course, Alan Hawse walks you through starting a project in WICED studio from scratch. In most cases, you’ll start with an example project, save to a new name, and make your desired changes. But for now, here’s how to create your own!

In this video, you’ll continue learning about Cypress’ WICED® Studio. Specifically, how to read and write the WICED GPIOs. You’ll start with the empty project you learned how to create in the last video and use a GPIO to blink an LED.

In the next video for Lesson 2 of our WICED® Wi-Fi® 101 course, Alan Hawse discusses how to monitor the state of a button on the kit as an input. You’ll also learn how to connect the button to an interrupt. Instead of creating a project from scratch, for this video we will copy the project from Lesson 2-2 and rename it.

Now, the fun begins! Welcome to the UART debugging episode. In this video, we dive in to the built-in UART, and you'll learn how to display information to the terminal window. This is a great tool for debugging and for printing out useful information to the user.

Next up, we're expanding on lesson 2-5. In this episode, our IoT expert Alan Hawse, walks you through the process of testing a different UART baud rate and accepting input from the terminal in addition to sending output to the terminal. You'll be a pro after watching this!

In this WICED Wi-Fi lesson, you’re going to use one of the PWMs built into the chip to vary the brightness of your LED. How cool is that? In this video, we finally get down to business.

You made an LED light vary in brightness in the previous video, so let's keep moving forward. Next-up, you'll use the I2C master to talk to an I2C slave.
