Configuration

Please use wesp32 ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

[env:wesp32]
platform = espressif32
board = wesp32

You can override default Silicognition wESP32 settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest wesp32.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:wesp32]
platform = espressif32
board = wesp32

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = esp32

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 240000000L

Uploading

Silicognition wESP32 supports the following uploading protocols:

  • cmsis-dap

  • esp-bridge

  • esp-prog

  • espota

  • esptool

  • iot-bus-jtag

  • jlink

  • minimodule

  • olimex-arm-usb-ocd

  • olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h

  • olimex-arm-usb-tiny-h

Default protocol is esptool

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:wesp32]
platform = espressif32
board = wesp32

upload_protocol = esptool

Debugging

Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Warning

You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Silicognition wESP32 does not have on-board debug probe and IS NOT READY for debugging. You will need to use/buy one of external probe listed below.
