I would like to buy ATWINC1500-XSTK starter kit for evaluation and testing the WI-FI WINC 1500 chip to communicate with another Microcontroller, however I can’t find any supporting documents, software and design support for the WINC1500 on your website, I also need to know what comes in the package with the ATWINC1500-XSTK starter kit.

 

I have downloaded Atmel Studio and Atmel-WINC1500-1.0.0.vsix but I am unable to activate it using the Atmel Studio software and I need guidance in doing so.

i am new to using WI-FI technology

Who do you think you are addressing as "you" there?

 

If you want to contact Atmel for sales or support, go to the Atmel website - or your Distributor.

So is there any specific reason for choosing this kit?

 

As a newbie, wouldn't it be better to find something with better support...?

That's looks very useful - how/where did you get hold of it?

There is updated and new documentation inside the Atmel Studio WINC1500 version 18 extension. It is within one of the example projects (WINC1500_FIRMWARE_UPDATE_AND_DOCUMENTATION).

You're awesome do you have more documentation for WINC1500 ?

Tried to check the links for WINC1500 here http://asf.atmel.com/docs/latest/api.html but they all seemed broken. Also I can't seem to find the source of the FW for the WINC1500.

Hello

I have found a small bug in the ATWINC1500 driver socket.c

 

- open TCP socket, SOCK 0 is active
- close socket 0

 

when I open the TCP socket again, you see that in the socketi_cb()  the socket is increased by one.

this is because the u8NextTcpSock is a static variable and is not set to 0 when starting this function

 

small change in the code: 

 

/*********************************************************************
Function
        socket

Description
        Creates a socket.

Return
        - Negative value for error.
        - ZERO or positive value as a socket ID if successful.

{
    SOCKET                    sock = -1;
    uint8                    u8SockID;
    uint8                    u8Count;
