This does not work for me anymore since my upgrade to Simplicity Studio 4. I can't change Debug mode of the STK board (whatever type of STK LG,GG or TG), the Debug OUT led on the board does not switch on and the Studio Launcher screen still shows MCU.
(All this worked fine with Studio 3)
What can I do?
What exactly are you seeing when you try to change the Debug Mode through V4? Can you share some screenshots?
Easy: Nothing !
In other words, the screen shows that the SDK Debug mode is MCU mode. You click on 'change' link to see the 'Adapter Configuration' dialog box that contains a listbox to change the Debug Mode (see attached screen1 file).
Choose OUT, after a little while the listbox becomes valid again and the word 'applied' is shown beside it (see attached screen 2 file), however the SDK did not change mode and the OUT led on the SDK is not on.
Obviously, this means that the SDK debug mode is not in OUT mode and trying to debug an external board with it does not work.
Hope this helps,
I experienced this issue, but it was resolved by updating the adapter firmware from the launcher in SS4.
@ryanco Are you using Studio V4 on an XP machine?
nope, windows 7
I could not upgrade STK firmware from SS4 as well. It just does not work and is just ignored by the STK board.
Is there a way to "uncompress" the .emz package and copy it directly on the STK "virtual disk" to manually upgrade it?
You are seeing this issue because an executable which is responsible for changing the debug mode of the MCU is not working as expected on XP. This is happening because one of the visual studio c runtime files in XP is of an incompatible version on V4. For now, I would suggest you to continue using V3.3 on your system. We are looking into this internally and once we have an update I will let you know.
Which EFM32 family devices is it possible to externally debug with an specific Starter Kit? For instance, a Tiny Gecko Starter Kit (STK3300) can debug an external EFM32LG micro?
Any news regarding V4 version and XP?
