RAM 32KB
Vendor Maxim

Configuration

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

[env:maxwsnenv]
platform = maxim32
board = maxwsnenv

You can override default Maxim Wireless Sensor Node Demonstrator settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest maxwsnenv.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:maxwsnenv]
platform = maxim32
board = maxwsnenv

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = max32610

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 24000000L

Uploading

Maxim Wireless Sensor Node Demonstrator supports the next uploading protocols:

  • cmsis-dap
  • mbed

Default protocol is mbed

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:maxwsnenv]
platform = maxim32
board = maxwsnenv

upload_protocol = mbed

Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “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).

Maxim Wireless Sensor Node Demonstrator 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.

Compatible Tools On-board Default
CMSIS-DAP   Yes

Frameworks

Name Description
mbed The mbed framework The mbed SDK has been designed to provide enough hardware abstraction to be intuitive and concise, yet powerful enough to build complex projects. It is built on the low-level ARM CMSIS APIs, allowing you to code down to the metal if needed. In addition to RTOS, USB and Networking libraries, a cookbook of hundreds of reusable peripheral and module libraries have been built on top of the SDK by the mbed Developer Community.
