    How to download firmware to WICED Sense from the IDE running on iMac?



      I have installed the WICED Smart IDE 2.1.1 on an iMac which is  running OS X 10.10.2.

      wiced_sense firmware is also installed and compiled successfully.

      CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP driver is also installed.

      I can find the following devices











      "Crystal warm up time" = 5000 is also applied.


      I have tried the target: wiced_sense-BCM920737TAG_Q32 recover UART=/dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART15


      But it reports:


      08:30:38 **** Build of configuration Release for project WICED-Smart-SDK ****

      Linking target ELF

      OK, made elf.

      Call to wiced_sense_spar_crt_setup @ 002079a1

      OK, made /Users/xxx/Documents/WICED/WICED-Smart-SDK-2.1.1/WICED-Smart-SDK/Wiced-Smart/spar/../../build/wiced_sense-BCM920737TAG_Q32-rom-ram-Wiced-release/A_20737A1-wiced_sense-rom-ram-spar.cgs. MD5 sum is:

      Is UART=/dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART15 a correct parameter on the Mac?

      BTW, download command is also used, but failed as well.


      Is there any suggestion?


      Thank you in advance.
