Description

Driver API for WiFi (Driver_WiFi.h)

Wi-Fi is technology for radio wireless local area networking of devices. Wi-Fi compatible devices typically connect to the Internet via a WLAN and a wireless access point (AP) also called hotspot.

Wikipedia offers more information about the WiFi.

WiFi API

The following header files define the Application Programming Interface (API) for the WiFi interface:

The CMSIS-Driver WiFi provides access to the following interfaces:

The WiFi interface usually requires CMSIS-RTOS features (i.e. mutex) and is often implemented with a peripheral device that is connected to the system using the SPI or UART interface. However, there are also some microcontroller devices with WiFi interface on the chip.

The implementation of the WiFi CMSIS-Driver is therefore generally provided as a separate software pack. It is often implemented as wrapper to the SDK (Software Development Kit) of the WiFi chipset.

Driver Functions

The driver functions are published in the access struct as explained in Common Driver Functions

Example Code


Data Structure Documentation

struct ARM_DRIVER_WIFI

Access structure of the WiFi Driver.

The functions of the WiFi driver are accessed by function pointers exposed by this structure. Refer to Common Driver Functions for overview information.

Each instance of a WiFi interface provides such an access structure. The instance is identified by a postfix number in the symbol name of the access structure, for example:

  • Driver_WiFi0 is the name of the access struct of the first instance (no. 0).
  • Driver_WiFi1 is the name of the access struct of the second instance (no. 1).

A middleware configuration setting allows connecting the middleware to a specific driver instance Driver_WiFin. The default is 0, which connects a middleware to the first instance of a driver.
