How to create project for custom EFR32 board ?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

I am new with Silabs products and ARM MCU.

I am a student and I must realize a prototype for a company.

 

What I need to do:

  • A program with UART communication and a range test for a sub-GHz frequency of 868MHz. I made a customized card with an EFR32FG12P431F1024GM48.

 

I think the best solution is to use emlib for UART and RAIL for RF. But I do not know how to create a new project.

 

The solutions I have tried are:

  1. New Project -> Silicon Labs AppBuilder Project -> Silicon Labs Flex SDK -> RAIL: Simple TRX -> Generate
    Several BSP errors !
    I saw in HAL->Board Header Configuration->Custom created header I can open a custom header but I don't know how to make one

  2. New project -> Silicon Labs AppBuilder Project -> Silicon Labs Flex SDK -> Start with a blank application -> Plugins: RAIL Common -> Generate
    Many errors with missing files !

  3. New Silicon Labs Project (Hardware Configurator)

    I can build the project but I don't know how to use the RF part

 

The differents documents / videos I have seen are for starter kits and they don't seem to work for a custom board.

 

Have you any specific documentation for a custom board ?

What is the easiest way to create a new project? from an example? If so, what is the difference between RAIL and Connect?.

 

I'm sorry for my writing, English isn't my first language

 

IDE : Simplicity Studio V4

SDK: Flex SDK 1.2.1.0

SoC: EFR32FG12P431F1024GM48

Kit : Custom Board
