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 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.
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!
The Cypress CYW943907AEVAL1F Evaluation kit enables you to evaluate and develop Wi-Fi applications using the dual band CYW43907 with onboard 320-MHz ARM Cortex-R4 MCU.
The PSoC AFE Shield is an Arduino Uno R3 compatible companion board that can be used to add analog capability and sensors as well as a user interface to an Arduino Uno R3 compatible baseboard (not included with this kit).
