Part Number: WL1835MOD

Hi Experts,
Our customer has been developing a product by utilizing WL1835MOD with Windows Embedded Compact 7.
They need to download the firmware every after power on the product.
Therefore, they have obtained TIinit_11.8.32.bts and studied about the source code for the hciattach command on Linux.

It seems that hciattach is a command included in BlueZ distribution under Linux.
> hciattach /dev/ttyO4 texas 300000
For example, it is executed by the command above.

They have investigated the source code.
https://github.com/pauloborges/bluez/blob/master/tools/hciattach_ti.c

There seems two potions as follows:
a. Serial port writing
b. hci0 is up and then write it.

a. is working with no problem on Compact 7.
However, b. does not work on Compact 7.

Can TI support how to download the firmware on Windows Embedded Compact 7?

Thank you very much for your kind advice.
Best regards,
Hitoshi

  • Hitoshi-san,
    TI doesn't directly support Windows platform for WiLink8 drivers. You may contact 3rd part Intelligraphics to check if they provide such support. Their contact details can be found @ www.ti.com/.../WILINK8-WIFI-MCP8

    Thanks
