Wi-Fi Combo

What would be the appropriate steps to load only the program in at 0x08000000 (4343w)?

I do not need the bootloader or DCT and would like to free some space for code.

Thanks,

Ben

Which STM MCU are you using?

If you are using a custom test platform, you can combine the WIFI FW into the internal Flash (assuming you have at least 512KB of Flash. Bootloader and DCT are mandatory since otherwise we don't know where to boot from and where to load the application and WIFI FW from. These do take up some Flash space, but you can reduce this by reducing the size of the DCT

4343W is WiFi only chip!

Your question should be focus on the MCU which attached the 4343W WiFi!

If you already look into SDK, There are some Apps under Apps/wwd which is loader wifi without bootloader!

4343W is a follow on to the 4334X.


Wi-Fi + BT.

Any thoughts on this?  Are there make parameters to avoid building the dct and bootloader?  Also is there a way to put the app at the start of flash?

In this specific application we are using the SDK for a test system.  All we need in the ST is the app and preferably the WiFi firmware.  Currently we have the WiFi firmware in external flash, but it boots much slower, which means a longer test time per unit.

Thanks in advance,

Ben
