Which debugger/programmer best suited for BGM 121 ?

Hi, everyone!

I'm new to ARM Cortex programming.

Can you, please, help me with choosing debugger/programmer best suited for BGM 121 ?

I'm a student, so for now i cant spent 100$ for starter kit, so im trying to start by cheaper means by buying BGM 121 and some debugger/program tool. Any ideas ?

As a student your best bet is:

...and you probably what the following if you are using the 10pin cortex header.

Many of our EFM32 starter kits include an on-board Segger J-Link debugger that can be used to program external devices (including BGM121). And they are quite affordable, starting at $29:

Hi JaakoV,

 

I have just ordered SLSDA001A.

I  already have Blue Gecko Bluetooth® Low Energy SiP Module Wireless Starter Kit SLWSTK6101C

 

I am also beginner for programming. 

 

I had taken shortcut. Just pulled out wires required for mini simplicity connector but its now working. 

Can you send me some link which can tell me how to program external target BGM121 using simplicity studio. Does target MCU gets supply from debugger connector or it needs to be powered externally?

 

Thanks,

Sudhir

Hi Tiago, Please find attached schematic drafted for BLE beacon application. Please let me know if it looks correct. Please approve the design so that we can proceed for prototype. Regards, Sudhir

Hi,

 

Please do not re-use threads for completely separate topics. I recommend that you issue a support ticket asking for a design review so that it can be assigned to our hardware support team.

 

Regards,

Tiago
