    Driver installation for WICED Sense

      Hi,

       

      I have the BCM9WICED_SNSE Bluetooth Smart sensor development kit

       

      The one with the red cover shown in the link below:

       

       

      http://www.macnica-na.com/wiced

       

       

      I also downloaded the SDK, and followed the "WICED Smart Deveopment system" document.

       

      After I first connected the device to my PC, the drivers didn't install properly, and I was unable to see them in the device manager.

       

      I am using windows 7.

       

       

      Also, the documentation in the SDK referece to BCM92073x_LE_KIT, which is not what I have, so I don't see how can I use this manual to help me build applications.

       

      Thanks,

          You will need to download the Silicon Labs USB to Serial drivers that are listed within the WICED Sense Index here: WICED Sense Table of Contents

           

          Make sure the kit is unplugged from the USB port when this is done, then reboot and plug the kit in.

           

          Once the drivers are running, you can plug the kit into your PC and program any of the included profiles within the WICED Smart SDK onto the kit.

           

          The Index above also has alot of other good links both for ideas and if you get stuck.

           

          Good luck.

            got it...

             

            download the driver from

             

            http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx

             

            DONT FORGET TO EXTRACT the files to any folder, and only then click the installation file (32 or 64 bit)

              what "index above"?

              • 5. Re: Driver installation for WICED Sense

                thanks,

                how can I verify the switches modes in the WICED sense kit, as written in the documentation:

                 

                "Verify the WICED Smart Tag is plugged into the development PC

                 Verify the USB-UART driver is correctly installed and all switches (SW2, SW3, SW4) are correctly set as described in Section 3.1.2

                 Press the reset button on the WICED Smart Tag to prepare the tag for firmware download on the UART interface. The reset button is shown in Figure 3 outlined by a red rectangle."

                 

                The kit does not have those switches.

                 

                Thanks,

                    Disregard.

                     

                    This is referring to our full featured TAG board, which is used for development.

                     

                    WICED Sense was designed as a user experience/Eval board tool, so it's quite a bit more basic compared to the development board.

                     

                    Nonetheless, you can use the SDK to program it...

                     

                    To fix this issue, you need to get the kit into programming mode (in Application mode by default)

                     

                    Open the kit and hit the reset switch inside: WICED Sense Recovery Procedure Video

                        To fix this issue, you need to get the kit into programming mode (in Application mode by default)

                         

                        Open the kit and hit the reset switch inside: WICED Sense Recovery Procedure Video

                        • 10. Re: Driver installation for WICED Sense

                          according to the video I need to hit both the boot and reset buttons at the same time...which means I need to take it remove the PCB from its cover... they seems to be glued pretty hard to one another...Is there a safe way to separate between the two?

                            Just hit reset.

                            • 12. Re: Driver installation for WICED Sense

                              I can't, the reset button is at the bottom. I only have access to the boot ROM button shown as 1 in the video.

                               

                              In order to reach the reset I think I have to take the whole thing apart... and I want to be able to put it back together (which will not happen if I use force to separate the two parts).

                                Take the top off, the button you see inside is reset.

                                 

                                I have done this several times, on several boards.

                                • 14. Re: Driver installation for WICED Sense

                                  OK, I pressed it once, twice, 10 seconds...still the same error.
