Last week i got frustrated about an esp8266 and started searching for an alternative. I came across the EMW3162 and ordered it without any research. I was working with a stm32f103 and the f205 seems nice because i wanted usb otg for my project.
After reading some documents from mxchip it felt like the chip was going to be a pain in the ass but them this forum showed up.
I'm used to program the f103 with just a usb->serial converter because stm's come with an bootloader. So i fought it would be possible on the EMW3162 too. After bending some header pins to get it to my breadboard and soldering it i downloaded the github repository.
I unzip the wiced download into the repository and copied the EMW3162 files into platforms.
Right now i can build the snip/apsta with the command "make snip.apsta-EMW3162".
It generates 2 directory's in the build directory: waf_bootloader-NoOS-NoNS-EMW3162-SDIO and snip_apsta-EMW3162
I flashed with the flash_loader_demo_v2.8.0 from stm.
waf_bootloader-NoOS-NoNS-EMW3162-SDIO to 8000000
snip_apsta-EMW3162 to 800c000
RIght now the program is running, i get a lot of crap over UART and "Ping failed"
So at least the program is running.
After flashin dct.bin to 800400 it worked fine.
From what i saw you guys are only working on linux with the EMW316x?
