Hi,

We would like to use WICED device as a slave device.

That is "WICED" <-> SPI bus <-> "MCU / Cortex-M4".

I know that a Cortex-M is inside WICED device, however, another Cortex-M is required for other applications.

In this case, to simply software in host side, the TCP/IP stack should be running at WICED end.

Is there any examples to show software design for this case ?

Yes. It is possible to use the entire WICED module as a "Black Box" if that is what you are asking.

Any of our partner modules can help you integrate into your system.

Yes, WICED module will be used as a "black box".

I have studied every snippets in SDK v2.4.1, none of them can give me a clue to speed up software development.

Shall I develop a serial protocol (SPI) from scratch for this case ?

The WICED module we are using is SSB_WM_N01 from SPIL,

I will check with them to see if any solutions for this is available as well.

I assume you have the SPIL platform files for the WICED SDK?

Platform-SPIL-2.4.0.zip

And, yes, I would discuss with SPIL.

No, I don't have SPIL platform files.

I have no privilege to access to the zip file.

The SDK we have is downloaded from this web site.

And platform files within the SDK only includes USI, Broadcom platforms.

There is no SPIL platform files.

Anything I missed ?

Also, the API wiced_spi_init() seems to be capable of SPI MASTER mode only at this moment,

In our case, SPI should be in SLAVE mode whereas another Cortex-M chip is in MASTER mode.

Hence, I am wondering if any available examples showing WICED device acting as slave device or not.

Can I please also have access to the SPIL code package?  I am writing similar inteface.

I have SSB-WM-N01 from SPIL. So can I have SPIL platform files for the WICED SDK too?

Platform-SPIL-2.4.0.zip

does this work? Or are you using newer SDK and this is too old?
