Dell XPS 2710 W10

Installed full MP Lab X 3.50 package all options

Near end of install it

  1. Reminded me to use switcher for IDe V8.x to MPLab X switching
  2. Optionally took me to links for:
    • XC compilers (I downloaded XC32)
    • Harmony 2.0 beta
    • MPLab Code Configurator
  3. Gave me host ID and license type links
    • I got trial license using host id and ran provided .bat file

Opened provided MPLab X project, got error re missing plib.h etc

  • DL & Installed:
    • PIC32 Legacy Peripheral Libraries – Windows 6/17/15
    • Installer said IMPORTANT to install after compiler so note to self to uninstall in reverse order

Still get error so tried:

  • File->Project properties->XC32 (Global Options) and checked Use Legacy libc

Now I get:

In file included from ../xxxx/xxxx.c:7:0:
c:\program files (x86)\microchip\xc32\v1.42\pic32mx\include\lega-c\plib.h:41:30: fatal error: peripheral/adc10.h: No such file or directory
 #include <peripheral/adc10.h>


  • Project properties->XC32-xc32-gxx:
    • Option Categories: = Preprocessing & messages
      • Added specifc path “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\xc32\v1.40\pic32mx\include\lega-c”

Uninstalled all, installed MPLab X 3.15, XC32 1.33 per KE2

Host ID is 5cf9dddd73e2 for XC 1.33

STM F4 Discovery IDE

Install CooCox IDE CoIDE-1.7.8

Install GCC ARM compiler gcc-arm-none-eabi-6_2-2016q4-20161216-win32

Install STM32 Link utility (Installs drivers as well) is file en.stsw-link004

When you go to build your project, it will ask for the path to the compiler, complete that and you are away

Downloaded WICED-SDK-3.3.1

7/20/2015 UPDATE: 
After installing the IDE you may not see all the APPs.  Press F5 in Eclipse to refresh and all the Apps will show.

Following the step from SEEDSTUDIO:

1. First of all, make sure you have git installed on your machine. Try typing "git" into a terminal window and if that gives you an error message, look up how to install git on your operating system.

2. In a terminal window, navigate to where you want to set up WICED, for example "~/repos".

3. Run "git clone". This will create a new directory in the current directory called "WICED-for-EMW".

Place the file "" you downloaded from Broadcom into the new directory.

Enter the directory in the terminal and run "./extract-and-patch-WICED".

WICED is now set up and patched to work with EMW3165, as well as EMW3162.
  1. Started a Terminal window
  2. Entered ‘sudo apt-get install git’ seems ok
  3. Entered ‘mkdir WICED’
  4. Entered ‘git clone’ seems ok
  5. Copied download to ‘WICED – for – EMW’
  6. Entered ‘./extract-and-patch-WICED’
    • Get message re Decompressing WICED, but then I get line:22 7z: command not found
    • Assuming no 7zip installed on Ubuntu be default: Entered ‘sudo apt-get install p7zip’
    • Did that and retried command above
    • Bloody hell, ok after a few retrys, realise that before 6 above need to do a : ‘sudo apt-get install p7zip-full’. [I fucking hate Linux]



Stlink P1 -> P15, JTRST -> Reset

Stlink P4 -> P9, SWCLK -> SWCLK

Stlink P6 -> P5, SWDIO -> SWDIO

Stlink P7 -> P4, 6, 8, 10, 12…. Gnd -> Gnd

But my cheap STLink V2 has a different pinout..

P1 -> P15 Reset


P4 -> P5 SWDIO

P6 -> GND


Default Bootloader needs SW1 down, outputs on serial at 912600

BeagleBone flashing, boot source and other OS reminders


BeagleBone Black Rev A5C = 2GB eMMC on board

Updating the OS

Ansgtrom was onboard eMMC as supplied and booted up fine onto HDTV using HDMI

Went looking for latest distro and found latest Debian distros at (Angstrom depreciated?)

  • Downloaded runnable version, installed and used Win32DiskImager to output unzipped imgage to 16GB micro SD Card
  • Loaded SDCard into BBB and held down User button whilst applying power.
  • Booted ok into desktop

Downloaded latest ‘flash’ version targetted for 2GB eMMC, and preparred another SDCard as per above

Booted ok, and watch on TV as it flashed from SDcard into eMMC

After it powered off removed SDCard and restarted BBB, booted ok and displayed terminal login on screen

Debian minimal eMMC image – installing LXDE desktop

Logged into debian terminal and did:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install lxde lxde-core lxde-icon-theme

Went through each command above and accepted options

NODEMCU getting started

2 x NodeMCU arrived. Website is a bit cryptic.  Turned to YouTube as this video is not too fluffy

Point to note:

  • Github/nodemcu for:
    • nodemcu-firmware
    • nodemcu-flasher
  • Connect ia USB and run flasher and is self evident process

Restart device go to terminal program and connect for interactive Lua session.

Then a LUA uploader:

  • for ‘Lua Uploader’



IOT SOM options

Linux onboard



Ingenic M150

Halley Development kit


Qualcomm Atheros AR9331 SoC

Non OS


An interesting option based on negligible pricing.

Restricted in sockets, but still possibly useful.

Interesting firmware options, either download to unit itself (SDK available) or for simple applications/ 2 x Node Lua variants:

Example apps, seems to fit a lot into ESP2866:

So, have some ordered and will see what can be done with these.


Looks very good on paper just waiting for GCC support

Limited toolsets available, limited information.

Ordered a couple + dev board

IOT Protocols

In the background I am trying to be mindful of message services from embedded devices to consumers.

So it will be useful to start to collect some thoughts on whats already being done out there..
