Broadcom has partnered with Inventek Systems,, to deliver the first production modules based on the highly anticipated and very integrated BCM43341 offering. The BCM43341 is a single–chip integrated quad radio (WLAN/Bluetooth/ BLE & Near Field Communications [NFC], with integrated low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and a transmit/receive (Tx/Rx) switch which offers a level of integration that greatly reduces the external part count, PCB footprint, and overall cost of the embedded wireless solution.

Broadcom and Inventek are also collaborating to deliver complete turnkey hardware solutions of different form factors to readily enable Wi-Fi, BLE and NFC connectivity in system design. In conjunction with this collaboration, Inventek offers their proprietary IWIN (Inventek Wireless Interoperability Network) firmware - a user friendly AT command protocol to ensure maximum optimization and seamless integration of WICED. In addition, Inventek also provides Cloud-ready Agent FW, IWINC (Inventek Wireless Interoperability Network for Clouds) to enable IoT platforms to seamless connect to target Cloud Owners and/or Providers.

On the Wi-Fi side of connectivity, Broadcom also provides a full-featured Eclipse-based SDK/Development Kit. Additionally, Broadcom is leading the way with Apple MFi HomeKit ready and Universal Bluetooth Smart to WLAN combo chip designs, all of which allow the developers to create secure embedded wireless networking applications on an existing microcontroller, or on an additional WICED module that includes a microcontroller.

Workshop Objective:
Attendees will receive an overview of Broadcom’s WICED Smart and WICED Wi-Fi IoT solutions, including a glimpse into the Roadmap for these products. In addition, hands-on demos will be provided which include detailed technical discussion on both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy software and hardware topics which affect today’s embedded IoT developer.

12:00pm – 1:00pm – Lunch will be provided
