SparkFun RED-V Thing Plus

Hardware

Platform SiFive: SiFive brings the power of open source and software automation to the semiconductor industry, making it possible to develop new hardware faster and more affordably than ever before.

Microcontroller FE310
Frequency 320MHz
Flash 16MB
RAM 16KB
Vendor SparkFun

Configuration

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

[env:sparkfun_thing_plus_v]
platform = sifive
board = sparkfun_thing_plus_v

You can override default SparkFun RED-V Thing Plus settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest sparkfun_thing_plus_v.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:sparkfun_thing_plus_v]
platform = sifive
board = sparkfun_thing_plus_v

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = fe310

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 320000000L

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).

SparkFun RED-V Thing Plus has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.

Compatible Tools On-board Default
J-LINK Yes Yes
Renode Yes
