1. On the Solutions tab of Simplicity Studio Launcher press Add Devices, type your device name and select it from the drop down list. It's important that you select a device listed under Parts and not under Kits or Boards
2. With your device selected on the Custom Solution tree press New Project
3. Select Silicon Labs Bluetooth Smart Framework and press Next
4. Select the stack version that you want to use and press Next
5. Select the example that you want to start from and press Next. Typically you will want to start from the SOC - Empty example
6. Select your project name and location and press Next
7. On the final window confirm that the part number is correct and press Finish which will then automatically open Simplicity IDE
Does this apply to creating a NCP bgapi project as well. By creating a project it will allow the use of the GATT configurator for this type of project any other benifits?
Since the deprecation of BGBuild as a tool to create NCP images starting from the 2.4.0 software release, this is the recommended way to create NCP projects. Alternatively, projects can be created using IAR or GCC.
Thanks for this tutorial, but for the Bluetooth example, the Soc-Empty example doesn't work on the custom board.
I have the same issue. In fact, using Simplicity Studio V4 2018 I don't even have the selections that you mention.
I have a custom board with a BGM111 on it. Not much else. How do I do a project for it? Debugger always says "board not found".
@weflynnjr You should use the "my products" section instead of "Solutions" see post about that here: https://www.silabs.com/community/software/simplicity-studio/forum.topic.html/i_don_t_see_the_dev-JmIb
I was able to create a project and compile, however when I attempt to debug the debugger seems lost in memory. Does anything need to be done for the debugging features to work?
My code is getting hanged in soc empty file in init_mcu() , why , any idea
So, apparently this information is outdated, and there is no pointer to up to date information (except the link https://www.silabs.com/community/software/simplicity-studio/forum.topic.html/i_don_t_see_the_dev-JmIb that does not explain anything about creating a custom board in the 'new and improved' interface).
Can someone point to the correct and up-to-date instructions for creating a custom board? I'm getting tired of simplicity studio overwriting my init_app.c etc with WLSTK6020 specific code.
