Hello.

I have the following device:

WICED Sense™ Bluetooth Smart Sensor Tag/Experience Kit - BCM9WICED_SENSE | Broadcom

I'm trying to build and flash firmware from examples: hello_sensor-BCM920736TAG_Q32 download UART=COM7

WICED Sense device appears at COM7 port in Windows 7 Device Manager (also COM8 port appears).

Log of WICED Smart IDE is the following:

14:11:36 **** Build of configuration Release for project WICED-Smart-SDK ****

"C:\\Users\\alex\\Documents\\WICED\\WICED-Smart-SDK-2.2.1\\WICED-Smart-SDK\\make.exe" hello_sensor-BCM920736TAG_Q32 download UART=COM7

Compiling spar_setup.c

Compiling hello_sensor.c

Compiling sparinit.c

Compiling lib_installer.c

Could someone please tell me:

1) How to flash an application into WICED Sence device?

2) Where is "reset button" on WICED Sence device?

I resolved an issue!

1) open device case (on both sides)

2) press button (not accessible when device in its case) near buzzer (it's RESET button)

I recommend pwm_tones-BCM920737TAG_Q32 application for quick&dirty test that device works and flashing was successful 😉

Thanks for reporting this back to the forum Alex.  WICED Sense was designed to be a simple, very low cost "Out of the Box Experience kit", so it lacks many of the more tried and proven features of our true development board, the TAG3 (Hardware User Guide (SDK 2.x and TAG3 Board)

With that said, we have since added an external reset button to the new WICED SENSE 2 Quick Start Guide (BCM20737L)​ as so many users attempt to use WICED Sense for development and often run across the same issue.
