Description

The MCP package contains the install package, pre-compiled object and source of the proprietary Wi-Fi Driver - QNX, Nucleus, WinCE as well as ThreadX, FreeRTOS, µC, MQX ,RTX and uITRON RTOS baseline image to easily integrate the TI WiLink Wi-Fi drivers. The integration is supported through third party vendors. The links to the vendors are below.

The Sigma package provides the required APIs for WL8 code to support automated Sigma certification testing.

The WAPI package provides the WPA Supplicant patch to support WAPI security protocol. For licensing information, release notes and profiles supported, please download the package.

Software block overview:

  • MCP8 WLAN – Software components
    • Main Software Components:
      • Driver core:
        • Implements layer 2 Wi-Fi protocol requirements (Data path and control).
        • Manages and abstracts the WL8-Device & Wi-Fi-FW.
      • Hostap package:
        • Provides the upper-management layers for all WLAN roles (Wi-Fi Station, Wi-Fi Access Point, P2P Group Owner/Client).
          • For Wi-Fi Station role, most functionalities are done inside the driver. Supplicant is mainly in charge of security.
        • User-space component.
        • Based on Open-Source implementation.
      • Platform/Framework/Networking interfaces:
        • Provide the interface to the networking stack.
        • Implements platform-specific logic and services.
      • Utilities:
        • Provide initialization and configuration services.
        • Implement debug and statistics capabilities.
