Unsolved

Hello,

We are considering using AES-BCM4343W-M1-G for our new product. I have tried to find the latest status about OTA / OTA2 update for AES-BCM4343W-M1-G but can't be sure.

We need an automated update system from a remote server.  Can we use AES-BCM4343W-M1-G in our design?

I have asked in the Cypress technical forums but was told to ask the question here.

Without a mechanism for remote update it would be very difficult to maintain the system as we are talking more than 1K nodes in a very diverse geography.

 

thanks

Cypress WICED Wi-Fi forum postings such as the following provide guidance on this:

For OTA updates, the application size will need to be limited to the overall memory constraints of the BCM4343W SoC module

Hello,

Thanks for the answer. Can you please eloborate on the overall application size? In your experience what is the limit?  This information would be very beneficial.

thanks
