Each Wi-Fi device must have a unique MAC address for communication through WiFi. WICED has different options to set the MAC address.
1) MAC address in OTP portion
Module Partners will program MAC address in the OTP memory of the WLAN chip. This will be unique and you can contact the module vendors for your know MAC address.
2) MAC address in DCT portion
DCT has memory for specifying MAC address. To direct WLAN chip to use MAC address from DCT, it is necessary to define global variable in the application makefile.
Add "GLOBAL_DEFINES+= MAC_ADDRESS_SET_BY_HOST" in .mk file in the project folder.
3) MAC address by User
If you don't want to use MAC address in OTP or DCT, you may redefine the WICED API function host_platform_get_mac_address() to provide your know MAC address when the WICED WiFi driver intializes the WLAN chip. You also need to set "GLOBAL_DEFINES+= MAC_ADDRESS_SET_BY_HOST" in .mk file.
You can locate host_platform_get_mac_address() under MCU folder, C:\..\..\..\WICED-Studio-5.0\43xxx_Wi-Fi\WICED\platform\MCU\BCM4390x\BCM4390x_platform.c
If you are having problems with your installer, check that the download size of the installer is roughly 260MB, installer problems are typically caused by incomplete downloads.
The picture below shows a very common error message. Our SDK utilizes a 32-bit version of an Eclipse based IDE which requires a 32-bit version of JRE to be installed. If you already have the 64-bit JRE installed, you will also need to install the 32-bit version as well. The JRE is designed to allow both 32 and 64 bit variants to be installed on the system.
The WICED Sense kit uses a Silicon Labs USB to Serial Device. The TAG3 board uses an FTDI USB to Serial Device. Both should be installed as part of the SDK 2.2.1 installation process. If not, the FTDI drivers for the TAG3 reinstall them using the file /WICED-Smart-SDK/Drivers/dpinst.exe (make sure you access from the command line). The Silicon Labs USB Drivers can be foundWICED Sense Table of Contents
