I'm just getting started with Silicon Lab's bluetooth parts and so far it has been a painful process. After reading through all the suggested documents, app notes, and getting started guides and searching online I have still not been able to find a set of simple hardware peripheral examples for this part. I've downloaded the 32-bit MCU SDK (multiple versions) and none of them have anything for any EFR32 serial part.
Am I doing something wrong? Does support not exist for these components? I know I can start reading through the documentation but a simple blinking LED and UART debug example would be a nice starting point.
You can refer these links for Blink and Serial out example
Thank you for the links, but these only get me so far. Does this mean that there are no peripheral examples available for the EFR32BG available in the SDK?
I'm currently trying to get a basic gpio interrupt working and when I try to follow the EFR32BG13 documentation it's telling me that the INT module is deprecated.
In the Bluetooth SDK we don't have peripheral examples as such, the examples focus on the Bluetooth functionality although some of them do use the EFR32BG peripherals (e.g. thermometer examples uses I2C to interface with the SI7021 Temperature/Humidity sensor on the WSTK).
The 32-bit MCU team has rolled out a set of peripheral examples with support for EFR32 radio boards, they are available on github: https://github.com/SiliconLabs/peripheral_examples
Unfortunately I don't see any support for the BG13 here still. I can try my luck with the EFR32BG1P for now I guess.
What's the proper way to open a .slsproj file. The import menu in simplicity studio isn't able to find the projects.
You need to select "Import as MCU project" and then navigate to the "Simplicity Studio" folder within each peripheral example directory.
Have you seen these? You may be able to use them as starting point.
