@ kiwi_stu - I have not run any power consumption test. I’d appreciate help in devising a plan though The module will be available in both a chip antenna version and one with a U.FL connector. Price has not been set yet, but should be ~$60-65 (US).
Looking forward to turning one of those modules over to Dr. Evil for some testing as I think there is something special lined up for it. Looks like a gotta have module in the Gadgeteer tool box, nice API.
@ munderhill ask @ Justin as Dr. Evil has kept him up maybe more then a few nights Some of the tests aren’t spoken of outside of the lab but Dr. Evil has a unique ability to break things in interesting ways.
Another milestone towards production has been made! The module now supports OTA updates to it’s firmware! Very simple API. Board will be updated to use 2 Gadgeteer sockets (K and S) and 4 mounting holes.
private void UpdateFirmware()
var wifiSocket = new WifiSocket(_wifi, "iotlabs.azurewebsites.net");
_updater = new FirmwareUpdater(wifiSocket);
_updater.UpdateCompleted += new EventHandler(OnUpdateCompleted);
_updater.UpdateFailed += new EventHandler(OnUpdateFailed);
void OnUpdateFailed(object sender, EventArgs e)
void OnUpdateCompleted(object sender, EventArgs e)
So, I’m back from vacation with version 2 of the IoT Labs IL-G-WF121 WiFi module! The board now includes a Flash memory chip to support OTA updates of the firmware. When not being used for updates it may be used by an application as we also provide a driver. The board now requires a K (wifi) and S (flash) socket. It can be used without the S socket connected, but OTA updates will not be supported then.
