WiFi RN171 - Does it use Socket U?


#1

On the product page, the RN 171 module is socket U compatible.
https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/444

However in the designer it only allows socket K connections. Is the product page wrong?

The reason I ask is the Cobra II ECO unit (without the expansion board) has a U-socket. It only receives the K-socket with the optional expansion board.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but there is a bug in the XML file for this module. This bug has been fixed and will be available in the next release of the SDK. If you require an immediate fix, you will need to change lines 78-86 of

C:\Program Files (x86)\GHI Electronics\GHI .NET Gadgeteer SDK\Modules\WiFi_RN171\GadgeteerHardware.xml

to match the following:

<Socket Left="21" Top="48" Orientation="90" ConstructorOrder="1" TypesLabel="KU">
          <Types>
            <Type>K</Type>
            <Type>U</Type>
          </Types>
          <Pins>
            <Pin Shared="false">3</Pin>
            <Pin Shared="false">4</Pin>
          </Pins>
        </Socket>
