Linux kernel support

Where can I find the Linux kernel support for the BCM4343W that is part of the Sterling-LWB module. I was asked if I could use it. If not we will look at some other company.

I need the source code for the driver that can be used to support this device
It would be used with a DRA726 from Texas Instruments. We would connect to it with SDIO and a UART.
I also need an example for a devicetree entry for it.

Linux kernel support

Linux support for this module is available on the product webpage for the product, please reference the below link for this. The PDF for Linux driver porting and usage is under the Dev Board & Kits section.

https://www.lsr.com/embedded-wireless-modules/wifi-plus-bluetooth-module/sterling-lwb#product-documents

The source code for the driver is not available. Cypress/Broadcomn owns the rights to these and they have not released them as open source. the Sterling-LWB will working in a variety of host platforms. There are devtree examples in the porting guides.

Linux kernel support

Hi,

I am using Sterling LWB module. I want to interface this module with STM32F411E DISCO board. basically, I am completely new in BLE development and I want to interface this BLE with DISCO board. For development purpose, I am using FreeRTOS. So can someone help how to do this task.

I am not able to get any BLE-Stack for FreeRTOS. So please provide some like or way to develop this task.

Thanks,
Harsh

Linux kernel support

Cypress/Broadcom provides their BT stack for FreeRTOS, but it is in the older WICED SDK v3, it is compatible with FreeRTOS or ThreadX. The newest version of WICED v4 has dropped support for FreeRTOS, but the older version still has it. You can obtain the SDK's from the link below.

I have to agree with SupportEngineer that
