CMP9010 wifi module integration

I have bought a CMP9010-1-EVB from mouser. The board has an CEL CMP9010 module, which is based on iw416. CEL provides a brief description on hardware on their web site but no further documentation on software integration.

The module is not listed in latest SDK for my imxrt1020 evk board. There are three modules based on iw416. One from murata and others from azurewave.

I wonder what I could do to bring it up. Is it compatible with a module from azurewave or murata? Or I must wait for a new SDK release including this module? Or perhaps I can get help here.

Dear @gingerologist ,

 

NXP IW416 chipset is supported on most of the i.MX RT hosts, using latest SDK 2.12:

- i.MX RT 1020, 1064, 1160: wifi only supported

- i.MX RT 1050, 1060, 1170, 685, 595 both wifi and BT supported

 

We could not test CEL CMP9010 module, but we assume it should work by selecting one of the WIFI_IW416_BOARD_*_USD flag in source/app_config.h.

 

@bruce_havemeier could you help on that request ?

 

Regards,

Olivier

Thank you for your reply and also thanks to Bruce Havemeier, I have received his email with some hardware documents.

 

Besides, I had some luck today. After carefully reading all related documents, I did the following steps:

 

1. Connect micro USB power to CMP9010 EVB and set jumper J1 to REG ('down position' according to quick start guide provided by CEL).

2. set J2 on CMP9010 EVB to 1.8V ('down position' according to quick start guide provided by CEL)

3. in app_config.h, comment out definition of "WIFI_88W8801_BOARD_AW_NM191_USD", define "WIFI_IW416_BOARD_AW_AM510_USD" instead.

 

Then at lease the "xxxx_wifi_setup" example works. I got the following output from serial console (/dev/ttyACM0 on my linux desktop).

 

```

Matian and oliver...I sent Matian the CMP9010-1-EVB quick start guide in a private email.  Also, I have put him in touch with our lead software engineer.
