Hello good morning.
I'm new in the field of communications through the thread protocols, Bluetooth and sub-GHz.
Recently I have been asked evaluating these technologies for deployment in one of our products, but I was filled with doubts on the matter. We currently have the SLWSTK6000B development kit and 3 SLWRB4158A modules.
I have been reading about the development of applications to be able to run them in the SoC and I have done a test test that has satisfied my needs, but my doubt is the following:
Do I really need to have my IAR Embedded Workbench license as shown in the attached image to develop new applications for Sub-GHz and Bluetooth protocols?
Could I develop applications for this both procolos only in Simplicity Studio (without a IAR license)?
What happend if I don't buy SLWSTK6000B kit and I buy all by parts (buy both communication modules and the programmer card separately)?
DMP(dynamic multiprotocol), that is 2 protocol run on one board, usually it is (BLE + Zigbee), (BLE + RAIL), (BLE + Connect). Do you have use case like this? (BLE + Zigbee) needs IAR. (BLE + RAIL) and (BLE + Connect) can use GCC. If you don't use DMP, you can use GCC.
Not sure about thread DMP.
Our WSTK integrate a SEGGER J-link interface, if you buy both communication modules and the programmer card separately, it works.
Thank for your support, Eric Su.
Now I understand a little more. My future solution is focused on the Bluetooth and Sub-1GHz protocols. Can I only use GCC for the development of my applications?
I don't know in which case my application is (Bluetooth + SUb-1GHz). Is it in BLE + RAIL or BLE + CONNECT?
