[edit] Connectivity Combinations

WL127x and WL128x are two generations of TI connectivity chips for the OMAP platforms. With any particular OMAP processor generation any particular generation of connectivity chip may be used (for a particular product). Generally used OMAP processor and connectivity chip combinations are:

  • OMAP3 and WL127x (as in Zoom2, Zoom3 devices) or
  • OMAP4 and WL128x (as in Blaze devices)

However, a few customers and internal development teams at TI use and need these (rare) combinations:

  • OMAP3 + WL128x and
  • OMAP4 + WL127x

The following hints are provided should you have an alternative combination of devices and have chosen not to use the devices on-board (for whatever reason):

Note that for on-board devices that come on a particular platform, i.e. Zoom2/3 (with WL127x), Blaze (with WL128x) and Panda (with WL127x), the relevant software releases for the platform (or board) should get WiFi, Bluetooth and FM work out of the box.

It should be clear by now that any OMAP platform can use any TI WiLink device. Below list provides a couple of rare/odd combinations along with a couple of regular:

  • OMAP3 + 1271 + 5500 (default for OMAP3)
  • OMAP3 + 1283
  • OMAP4 + 1283 (default for OMAP4)
  • OMAP4 + 1271
