The latest updates to Windows 10 and Windows 7 have caused reported issues with Silicon Labs' Toolstick adapters, 8-bit debug adapters, and 32-bit debug adapters.
The updates in question are:
KB4487044 (Win10 ver 1809)
KB4487017 (Win10 ver 1803)
The reported behavior is that the debug adapters do not enumerate properly. Affected devices will not show up in the Windows Device Manager. Example bug reports are linked below.
If you are running into these issues you can try to roll back the above updates. However note that Microsoft places some restrictions on rolling back an update. For more information about rolling back a windows update and Microsoft's restrictions on uninstalling updates click the links below.
If you are able to roll back these updates but still experience issues, please submit a support ticket here.
Silicon Labs is in contact with Microsoft and we are working to resolve the issue. Updates will be posted here.
Relatively new to this IDE and the chipset. We are working with a third-party who is doing a radio protocol, so they are using the RAIL library. I would like to create a custom project that doesn't have the RAIL library, and links to the third-party static library, which incorporates the RAIL library. Static library is created and imported into the project, but I can not seem to get a template of a working project that doesn't include the RAIL or CONNECT plugins/libraries. So, questions:
I have developed a working application for my BGM113 running on a custom PCB powered by a 3V battery. When I run this application through the debug panel on Simplicity Studios on the device through the Simplicity Mini Debug Adapter everything works great, however when I flash the application to the device and try to run it standalone off its own battery power disconnected from the debug adapter, it does not seem to run. Not sure what could be going wrong here, any help would be appreciated as I am still new to Simplicity Studios and Microcontroller programming.
I developed a project with using radio board BRD4164 Mighty Gecko SoC and connect to SLWSTK. In my project which include some functions of bluetooth stack. the project can be built successfully in Simplicity, and my firmware can be debugged and running on SLWSTK (with BRD4164). But when I use external battery to suppy power to let SLWSTK (with BRD4164) run without PC connection in standalone condition, a curious problem is happen that it does not work on bluetooth radio part.
Can anyone give me some hints to resolve this problem?
I guess whether SLWSTK connect to PC, the firmware is runnning in Simplicity debug mode, but if SLWSTK with firmware run standalone, it is without completely library support or not? that is only my guess.
I am looking forward your supporting soon. Thanks
I am using Simplicity Studio 18.104.22.168 with the Gecko SDK Suite: Bluetooth 22.214.171.124 with Flex and Micrium OS. We have a custom board using the EFR32BG13P632F512IM32 and also a board using the MGM12P32F1024GA.
When creating a new project from Launcher for either of these products there is no .hwconf file created. There also appears to be no way to add/create a .hwconf file to an existing project.
When creating a project using the Hardware Configurator tab under Compatible Tools in Launcher, Simplicity throws the error "Simplicity Configurator does not support the previously selected SDK and this device".
I have tried using the Gecko SDK Suite: Bluetooth 126.96.36.199 (no Flex or Micrium) with the same result. However, if the SDK is switched to Gecko SDK Suite: MCU 188.8.131.52 then the .hwconf will be successfully created but if you try to copy this .hwconf into an empty Bluetooth SOC project, Simplicity throws the error "This file cannot be used with the currently selected SDK! Please downgrade the SDK or create a new Configuration file." Well, OK, how do you create a new .hwconfig file? This does not appear to be an option in Simplicity.
I had a colleague try to create a similar project on his laptop with Simplicity and he gets these same results. Is hardware configurator supported for the EFR32 family? What is the correct process to create a new project with .hwconf if so?
Thank you for your help.
I'm currently using Simplicity Studio 4 on Windows.
I'm tried importing a project that was originally created in Atollic TrueStudio with Tiny Gecko processor.
How can I import the project and apply to it the processor that I want?
I'd like a convenient method for watching a data buffer. Also how to display it in hex?
I'm stuck with a irritating issue. When I open simplicity studio I get noticed that there is updates and I often install these, but for some reason the Bluetooth SDK for Apple HomeKit will not update. I'm currently stuck in 184.108.40.206 and now every time I open Simplicity Studio I get a the update notification.
When I open the package manager and try to update the SDK, I get a license agreement, which I accepts, but then nothing happens, the update button is grayed out but if I press "check for updates" it is re-enabled. All the other SDK's have no issues and starts downloading as expected when I press "Update".
The issue is on my Mac installation. Anybody experiencing something similar or know how I can fix this?
I get the following error message after trying to login in Simplicity Studio:
I can login to silabs.com from my company network without any problem. I have also tried to configure a proxy server but then Simplicity Studio does not respond after entering my credentials. I have to manually kill the process. The proxy server works fine otherwise. Any ideas?
Update: I can occaisionally connect to the server but SS does not find any connected device and does not offer me any packages to install. The SS installation seems really, really broken. I have tried to re-install SS several times but I get the exact same behavior every time.
If i create a new example project (like SLWSTK6220A_ezradio_simple_trx) or open an existing one in any freshly installed version(v3/v4) of Simplicity Studio, when i open the radio configurator it gives me the attached window instead of the configurator interface. It does not matter which sdk version I use, it happens anyway.
What is wrong with it?
Edit: I cant attach picture, but the window says: "No appropriate stack was found. Please point to a stack that you would like to use."
Here is what I would "like" to do - mainly because this is what I'm used to.
1. Copy an entire project/workspace from one directory into a new directory, Project1 into Project2.
2. Search and replace all text instances of Project1 to Project2 in the Project2 directory so that file paths and names are updated.
3. Open new project/workspace from the Project2 directory, and continue working in new directory with same files, settings, or change files and settings as needed in new project.
Maybe there is already way to do this, but the steps above didn't seem to work as a brute force method. Nor is there a Copy Project button to take care of copying files and changing paths in project files automatically. Instead, it seems like Studio wants me to create a new project from scratch, re-entering all of the settings that may have taken days to get right.
So here are my questions.
1. Is there a way to copy a project as described in steps 1-3 above.
2. Is there an easy, automatic, semi-automatic way of copying a project (and settings) with Studio tools ?
Or is creating a new project, re-entering all the settings again, then copying resources from one project to another the only way ?
