This project adds Wi-Fi connectivity using an external Silex ULPGN Wi-Fi module connected over a UART interface.

The project provides an example demonstration of the Renesas Synergy Platform connected to a Silex SX-ULPGN-EVK Wi-Fi evaluation kit. The demonstration covers the SX-ULPGN Wi-Fi Framework Application Programming Interface (API). It also includes the on-chip software stack and API and the Socket API for the SK-S7G2 development board. The SX-ULPGN is a single-band 2.4GHz 802.11n module based on the Qualcomm QCA4010 System-on-Chip (SoC).
