Debugging an EFM32 product on a custom board

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Where does one find documentation for developing to a custom board in Simplicity?  I'm using the EFR32BG1B132F256GM489

 

Details:

I've started a new MCU project with kit:none, part: EFR32BG1B132F256GM489 SDK: bluetooth smart sdk ...

I chose the example project SOC Demo Health Thermometer

 

In the resulting .isc window, "general" tab, I verified the IAR toolchain.  In the "other" tab, I deselected using the hardware configurator (because that led to dead ends in all previous efforts), and then generated.

 

The subsequent build fails due to a missing bspconfig.h file.

I created one based upon an existing, and then created my own bsp_bcp.h file because that one caused trouble.

 

I'm now unable to find all the references in the stack code to bspconfig.h.  (I really don't understand THAT.)

 

Suggestions welcome.

 

(Sadly, I get significantly more responses when I rant than when I ask calmly.  It seems it should not be that way.)

Hi,

 

Could try it with BLE SDK v2.0.0? It is much more flexible in case using custom hardware.

For this you need studio v4.

 

Cheers,

Re: Debugging an EFM32 product on a custom board

Will there ever be support for adding a custom board to Simplicity Studio? I am doing something similar with an EFR32 product on a custom board. The functionality of SS is very limited if it only allows for generating for predefined kits. I am using SS v4 and Blue SDK 2.0.0 and can't find any way to add a custom board. It is possible to use the sample and modify it for the custom board, but it would be much more efficient for other projects to allow a custom board definition in Simplicity Studio to test additional applications on the same board.
