The wait is almost over


Today was a good day, our long-awaited DipCortex’s have arrived! We are busy testing the batch and running each one through our test rig to check every function works as required. To make them a bit easier to tell apart each has a different PCB colour. Red for the WiFi DipCortex, blue for the DipCortex M3 and green for the DipCortex M0. For those of you that have pre-ordered you will be getting an email inviting you to complete your purchase very soon.

Update : All pre-orders received before the 26th Oct should have an email inviting them to complete their order

DipCortex, Software examples and more

A few weeks ago, Martin Kojtal contacted us about working together to create a complete library for the CC3000 on the mbed platform. One that could be used with existing mbed library’s. He assembled a small team of developers with a similar goal and this week we are ready to share it with the world. The library is fully working on the WiFi DipCortex and there are many demos available that demonstrate how you can write your own applications using the WiFi Dipcortex.

We have put together an mbed cookbook that list the demo’s and shows you how to configure them, these include TCP server/client, UDP server/client, Websocket, HTTP client and Twitter client. Specifically for the DipCortex I am putting together an example that brings them all together in a similar way to the standalone C example project I shall be sharing does. I call this my kitchen sink project.

For those of you that prefer to work in an offline IDE and get a little closer to the bare metal, I will be posting my LPCXpresso C project to GitHub in the next few days here. This example shows you how to configure the CC3000 modules and again set UDP/TCP clients and servers. It also adds in the USB CDC support so that an external serial to USB convertor is not required. You can see an earlier version of this software in my video.

DipCortex Production Update

Many thanks for all of the DipCortex pre-orders, we have both been overwhelmed with support. Our visit to the Brighton Maker Faire where we showed the prototype versions off  to the crowds went well and we have had lots of interest.

A quick update on the production status, we hit a small block in customs at the start of the month, they held on to our components for over a week, which has caused a bit of a delay. We have sorted that and we now have the right import codes so that it wont happen again. The assembly is in progress with our manufacturer, we hope to have them in our hands in the next 2 weeks and in yours not long after.

Firmware progress has been good for the WiFi DipCortex, I have been contacted by a group of software developers working on CC3000 mbed library’s and have had their code working on the WiFi DipCortex, connecting to an access point and sending off some pings, So great progress.

The waiting is killing me! Thank you again for your patience.

WiFi DipCortex Firmware Demo

Here is a quick video showing the current firmware for the WiFi DipCortex using the CC3000, It demonstrates connecting to an access point, resolving and pinging a hostname. Communicating over UDP to a PC and using smart config to configure the access point the WiFi DipCortex should connect too.

This firmware will be delivered with your WiFi DipCortex letting you (and us) test it out before you start having fun customising it for your application or writing your own code.
