Rev. 1.0 | 3 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Introduction 1. Introduction The EFR32xG22 Wireless Gecko Wireless SoC is featured on a radio board that plugs directly into a Wireless Starter Kit (WSTK) Main- board. The mainboard features several tools for easy evaluation and development of wireless applications. An on-board J-Link debug- ger enables programming and debugging on the target device over USB or Ethernet. The Advanced Energy Monitor (AEM) offers real- time current and voltage monitoring. A virtual COM port interface (VCOM) provides an easy-to-use serial port connection over USB or Ethernet. The Packet Trace Interface (PTI) offers invaluable debug information about transmitted and received packets in wireless links. All debug functionality, including AEM, VCOM, and PTI, can also be used towards external target hardware instead of the attached ra- dio board. A 20-pin expansion header (EXP header) is also provided that allows connection of expansion boards (EXP boards) to the kit. 1.1 Radio Boards A Wireless Starter Kit consists of one or more mainboards and radio boards that plug into the mainboard. Different radio boards are available, each featuring different Silicon Labs devices with different operating frequency bands. Since the mainboard is designed to work with all different radio boards, the actual pin mapping from a device pin to a mainboard feature is done on the radio board. This means that each radio board has its own pin mapping to the Wireless Starter Kit features, such as buttons, LEDs, the display, the EXP header and the breakout pads. Because this pin mapping is different for every radio board, it is important that the correct document be consulted which shows the kit features in context of the radio board plugged in. This document explains how to use the Wireless Starter Kit when the EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Radio Board (BRD4183A) is combined with a Wireless STK Mainboard. The combination of these two boards is hereby referred to as a Wireless Starter Kit (Wire- less STK). 1.2 Ordering Information BRD4183A can be obtained as part of SLWSTK6021A EFR32xG21 2.4 GHz Mesh Networking Starter Kit or as a separate radio board, SLWRB4183A.

Mainboard Connector Layout 3.1 J-Link USB Connector The J-Link USB connector is situated on the left side of the Wireless Starter Kit Mainboard. Most of the kit's development features are supported through this USB interface when connected to a host computer, including: • Debugging and programming of the target device using the on-board J-Link debugger • Communication with the target device over the virtual COM port using USB-CDC • Accurate current profiling using the AEM In addition to providing access to development features of the kit, this USB connector is also the main power source for the kit. USB 5V from this connector powers the board controller and the AEM. It is recommended that the USB host be able to supply at least 500 mA to this connector, although the actual current required will vary depending on the application. 3.2 Ethernet Connector The Ethernet connector provides access to all of the Wireless Starter Kit's development features over TCP/IP. The Ethernet interface provides some additional development features to the user. Supported features include: • Debugging and programming of the target device using the on-board J-Link debugger • Communication with the target device over the virtual COM port using TCP/IP socket 4901 • "VUART" communication with the target device over the debug SWD/SWO interface using TCP/IP socket 4900 • Accurate current profiling using the AEM • Real-time radio packet and network analysis using the Packet Trace Interface • Access to advanced configuration options using the admin console over TCP/IP socket 4902 Note: The Wireless Starter Kit cannot be powered using the Ethernet connector, so in order to use this interface, the USB connector must be used to provide power to the board. silabs.com | Building a more connected world.

Rev. 1.0 | 8 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Connectors 3.4 EXP Header The EXP header is an angled 20-pin expansion header provided to allow connection of peripherals or plugin boards to the kit. It is loca- ted on the right-hand side of the mainboard, and it contains a number of I/O pins that can be used with most of the EFR32 Wireless Gecko's features. Additionally, the VMCU, 3V3, and 5V power rails are also exported. The connector normally follows a standard which ensures that commonly used peripherals, such as an SPI, a UART, and an I2C bus, are available on fixed locations in the connector. The rest of the pins are used for general purpose IO. This allows the definition of expansion boards (EXP boards) that can plug into a number of different Silicon Labs Starter Kits. However, due to limitations in the number of available I/O pins on the EFR32xG22, the connector on this kit has a reduced feature set. The figure below shows the pin assignment of the EXP header. Because of limitations in the number of available GPIO pins, some of the EXP header pins are not connected and the rest are shared with kit features. 3V3 20 19 BOARD_ID_SDA 5V 1817 BOARD_ID_SCL NC16 15 NCUART_RX / PA0614 13 NCUART_TX / PA05 12 11NCNC 10 9PB01 / GPIO NC87 PB00 / GPIO NC65NCNC43NCVMCU21 GND EFR32 I/O Pin Reserved (Board Identification) Figure 3.3.

Rev. 1.0 | 10 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Connectors 3.5 Debug Connector The debug connector serves multiple purposes based on the "debug mode" setting which can be configured in Simplicity Studio. When the debug mode is set to "Debug IN", the debug connector can be used to connect an external debugger to the EFR32 on the radio board. When set to "Debug OUT", this connector allows the kit to be used as a debugger towards an external target. When set to "De- bug MCU" (default), the connector is isolated from both the on-board debugger and the radio board target device. Because this connector is electronically switched between the different operating modes, it can only be used when the board controller is powered (i.e., J-Link USB cable connected). If debug access to the target device is required when the board controller is unpowered, connect directly to the appropriate breakout pins. The pinout of the connector follows that of the standard ARM Cortex Debug+ETM 19-pin connector. The pinout is described in detail below. Even though the connector has support for both JTAG and ETM Trace, it does not necessarily mean that the kit or the on-board target device supports this.

Debug Connector Note: The pinout matches the pinout of an ARM Cortex Debug+ETM connector, but these are not fully compatible because pin 7 is physically removed from the Cortex Debug+ETM connector. Some cables have a small plug that prevent them from being used when this pin is present. If this is the case, remove the plug or use a standard 2x10 1.27 mm straight cable instead. Table 3.2.

It combines selected functionality from the two connectors to a smaller footprint 10-pin connector, which is more suitable for space constrained designs. For versatility, the debug adapter features three different 10-pin debug connectors: • Silicon Labs Mini Simplicity Connector • ARM Cortex 10-pin Debug Connector • Silicon Labs ISA3 Packet Trace The ARM Cortex 10-pin Debug Connector follows the standard Cortex pinout defined by ARM and allows the Starter Kit to be used to debug hardware designs that use this connector. The ISA3 connector follows the same pinout as the Packet Trace connector found on the Silicon Labs Ember Debug Adapter (ISA3). This allows the Starter Kit to be used to debug hardware designs that use this connector. The Mini Simplicity Connector is designed to offer advanced debug features from the Starter Kit on a 10-pin connector: • Serial Wire Debug (SWD) with SWO • Packet Trace Interface (PTI) • Virtual COM port (VCOM) • AEM monitored voltage rail Note: Packet Trace is only available on Wireless STK Mainboards. MCU Starter Kits do not support Packet Trace. VAEM 1RST 3 VCOM_TX 5 PTI_FRAME 9 silabs.com | Building a more connected world.

Power Supply and Reset 4.1 Radio Board Power Selection The EFR32 on a Wireless Starter Kit can be powered by one of these sources: • The debug USB cable • A 3 V coin cell battery • A USB regulator on the radio board (for devices with USB support only) The power source for the radio board is selected with the slide switch in the lower left corner of the Wireless STK Mainboard. The figure below shows how the different power sources can be selected with the slide switch. BAT USB AEM 5 V USB Mini-B Connector LDO 3.3 V Advanced Energy Monitor AEM USB VMCU BAT 3 V Lithium Battery EFR32 (CR2032) Figure 4.1. Power Switch With the switch in the AEM position, a low noise 3.3 V LDO on the mainboard is used to power the radio board. This LDO is again powered from the debug USB cable. The AEM is now also connected in series, allowing accurate high speed current measurements and energy debugging/profiling. With the switch in the USB position, radio boards with USB-support can be powered by a regulator on the radio board itself. BRD4183A does not contain a USB regulator, and setting the switch in the USB position will cause the EFR32 to be unpowered. Finally, with the switch in the BAT position, a 20 mm coin cell battery in the CR2032 socket can be used to power the device. With the switch in this position, no current measurements are active. This is the recommended switch position when powering the radio board with an external power source. Note: The current sourcing capabilities of a coin cell battery might be too low to supply certain wireless applications. Note: The AEM can only measure the current consumption of the EFR32 when the power selection switch is in the AEM position. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 14 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Power Supply and Reset 4.2 Board Controller Power The board controller is responsible for important features, such as the debugger and the AEM, and is powered exclusively through the USB port in the top left corner of the board. This part of the kit resides on a separate power domain, so a different power source can be selected for the target device while retaining debugging functionality. This power domain is also isolated to prevent current leakage from the target power domain when power to the board controller is removed. The board controller power domain is not influenced by the position of the power switch. The kit has been carefully designed to keep the board controller and the target power domains isolated from each other as one of them powers down. This ensures that the target EFR32 device will continue to operate in the USB and BAT modes. 4.3 EFR32 Reset The EFR32 Wireless SoC can be reset by a few different sources: • A user pressing the RESET button • The on-board debugger pulling the #RESET pin low • An external debugger pulling the #RESET pin low In addition to the reset sources mentioned above, a reset to the EFR32 will also be issued during board controller boot-up. This means that removing power to the board controller (unplugging the J-Link USB cable) will not generate a reset, but plugging the cable back in will, as the board controller boots up. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 15 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Peripherals 5. Peripherals The starter kit has a set of peripherals that showcase some of the features of the EFR32. Be aware that most EFR32 I/O routed to peripherals are also routed to the breakout pads or the EXP header. This must be taken into consideration when using these. 5.1 Push Buttons and LEDs The kit has two user push buttons marked BTN0 and BTN1. They are connected directly to the EFR32 and are debounced by RC filters with a time constant of 1 ms. The buttons are connected to pins PB00 and Not connected. The kit also features two yellow LEDs marked LED0 and LED1 that are controlled by GPIO pins on the EFR32. The LEDs are connec- ted to pins PB01 and Not connected in an active-high configuration.

Buttons and LEDs 5.2 Serial Flash The BRD4183A Radio Board is equipped with an 8 Mbit Macronix MX25R SPI flash that is connected directly to the EFR32. The figure below shows how the serial flash is connected to the EFR32. PC02 (US0_CLK) PC00 (US0_TX) PC01 (US0_RX) PC03 (US0_CS) EFR32 silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 16 VMCUVDD SCLK MOSI 8 Mbit MISO SCSFigure 5.2. Radio Board Serial Flash The MX25R series are ultra low power serial flash devices, so there is no need for a separate enable switch to keep current consump- tion down. However, it is important that the flash is always put in deep power down mode when not used. This is done by issuing a command over the SPI interface. In deep power down, the MX25R typically adds approximately 100 nA to the radio board current con- sumption. MX25R8035F UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Peripherals 5.3 Virtual COM Port An asynchronous serial connection to the board controller is provided for application data transfer between a host PC and the target EFR32. This eliminates the need for an external serial port adapter.

Virtual COM Port Interface The virtual COM port consists of a physical UART between the target device and the board controller, and a logical function in the board controller that makes the serial port available to the host PC over USB or Ethernet. The UART interface consists of four pins and an enable signal. Table 5.1. Virtual COM Port Interface Pins Signal Description VCOM_TX Transmit data from the EFR32 to the board controller VCOM_RX Receive data from the board controller to the EFR32 VCOM_CTS Clear to Send hardware flow control input, asserted by the board controller when it is ready to receive more data VCOM_RTS Request to Send hardware flow control output, asserted by the EFR32 when it is ready to receive more data VCOM_ENABLE Enables the VCOM interface, allowing data to pass through to the board controller. The parameters of the serial port, such as baud rate or flow control, can be configured using the admin console. The default settings depend on which radio board is used with the Wireless STK Mainboard. Note: The VCOM port is only available when the board controller is powered, which requires the J-Link USB cable to be inserted. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 17 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Peripherals 5.3.1 Host Interfaces Data can be exchanged between the board controller and the target device through the VCOM interface, which is then available to the user in two different ways: • Virtual COM port using a standard USB-CDC driver • TCP/IP by connecting to the Wireless STK on TCP/IP port 4901 with a Telnet client When connecting via USB, the device should automatically show up as a COM port. The actual device name that is associated with the kit depends on the operating system and how many devices are or have been connected previously. The following are examples of what the device might show up as: • JLink CDC UART Port (COM5) on Windows hosts • /dev/cu.usbmodem1411 on macOS • /dev/ttyACM0 on Linux Data sent by the target device into the VCOM interface can be read from the COM port, and data written to the port is transmitted to the target device. Connecting to the Wireless STK on port 4901 gives access to the same data over TCP/IP. Data written into the VCOM interface by the target device can be read from the socket, and data written into the socket is transmitted to the target device. Note: Only one of these interfaces can be used at the same time, with the TCP/IP socket taking priority. This means that if a socket is connected to port 4901, no data can be sent or received on the USB COM port. 5.3.2 Serial Configuration By default, the VCOM serial port is configured to use 115200 8N1 (115.2 kbit/s, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit), with flow control disabled/ignor- ed. The configuration can be changed using the admin console: WSTK> serial vcom config Usage: serial vcom config [--nostore] [handshake <rts/cts/rtscts/disable/auto>] [speed <9600,921600>] Using this command, the baud rate can be configured between 9600 and 921600 bit/s, and hardware handshake can be enabled or disabled on either or both flow control pins. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 18 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Peripherals 5.3.3 Hardware Handshake The VCOM peripheral supports basic RTS/CTS flow control. VCOM_CTS (target clear to send) is a signal that is output from the board controller and input to the target device. The board controller de-asserts this pin whenever its input buffer is full and it is unable to accept more data from the target device. If hardware handshake is enabled in the target firmware, its UART peripheral will halt when data is not being consumed by the host. This implements end-to-end flow control for data moving from the target device to the host. VCOM_CTS is connected to the RTS pin on the board controller and is enabled by setting handshake to either RTS or RTSCTS using the "serial vcom config" command. VCOM_RTS (target request to send) is a signal that is output from the target device and input to the board controller. The board control- ler will halt transmission of data towards the target if the target device de-asserts this signal. This gives the target firmware a means to hold off incoming data until it can be processed. Note that de-asserting RTS will not abort the byte currently being transmitted, so the target firmware must be able to accept at least one more character after RTS is de-asserted. VCOM_RTS is connected to the CTS pin of the board controller. It is enabled by setting handshake to either CTS or RTSCTS using the "serial vcom config" command in the admin console. If CTS flow control is disabled, the state of VCOM_RTS will be ignored and data will be transmitted to the target device anyway. Table 5.2. Hardware Handshake Configuration Mode Description disabled RTS (VCOM_CTS) is not driven by the board controller and CTS (VCOM_RTS) is ignored. rts RTS (VCOM_CTS) is driven by the board controller to halt target from transmitting when input buffer is full. CTS (VCOM_RTS) is ignored. cts RTS (VCOM_CTS) is not driven by the board controller. Data is transmitted to the target device if CTS (VCOM_RTS) is asserted, and halted when de-asserted. rtscts RTS (VCOM_CTS) is driven by the board controller to halt target when buffers are full. Data is transmitted to the target device if CTS (VCOM_RTS) is asserted, and halted when de-asserted. Note: Enabling CTS flow control without configuring the VCOM_RTS pin can result in no data being transmitted from the host to the target device. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 19 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Board Controller 6. Board Controller The Wireless STK Mainboard contains a dedicated microcontroller for some of the advanced kit features provided. This microcontroller is referred to as the board controller and is not programmable by the user. The board controller acts as an interface between the host PC and the target device on the radio board, as well as handling some housekeeping functions on the board. Some of the kit features actively managed by the board controller are: • The on-board debugger, which can flash and debug both on-board and external targets • The Advanced Energy Monitor, which provides real-time energy profiling of the user application • The Packet Trace Interface, which is used in conjunction with PC software to provide detailed insight into an active radio network • The Virtual COM Port and Virtual UART interfaces, which provide ways to transfer application data between the host PC and the target processor • The admin console, which provides configuration of the various board features Silicon Labs publishes updates to the board controller firmware in the form of firmware upgrade packages. These updates may enable new features or fix issues. See Section 9.1 Firmware Upgrades for details on firmware upgrade. 6.1 Admin Console The admin console is a command line interface to the board controller on the kit. It provides functionality for configuring the kit behavior and retrieving configuration and operational parameters. 6.1.1 Connecting The Wireless Starter Kit must be connected to Ethernet using the Ethernet connector in the top left corner of the mainboard for the admin console to be available. See Section 8.1.2 Ethernet Interface for details on the Ethernet connectivity. Connect to the admin console by opening a telnet connection to the kit's IP address, port number 4902. When successfully connected, a WSTK> prompt is displayed. 6.1.2 Built-in Help The admin console has a built-in help system which is accessed by the help command. The help command will print a list of all top level commands: WSTK> help *************** Root commands **************** aem AEM commands [ calibrate, current, dump, ... ] boardid Commands for board ID probe. [ list, probe ] dbg Debug interface status and control [ info, mode,] dch Datachannel control and info commands [ info ] discovery Discovery service commands. net Network commands.

Serial Port Configuration serial config vcom handshake enable Enables hardware handshake on the VCOM UART connection. 6.2 Virtual UART The Virtual UART (VUART) interface provides a high performance application data interface that does not require additional I/O pins apart from the debug interface. The Wireless Starter Kit makes the VUART interface available on TCP/IP port 4900. 6.2.1 Target to Host Target to host communication utilizes the SWO-pin of the debug interface through the ITM debug peripheral. This approach allows a sleepy target device to enter all energy modes, and still wake up intermittently to send debug information. The baud rate of the SWO data is locked to 875 kHz. VUART utilizes ITM stimulus port 0 for general purpose printing. Silicon Labs' networking stacks utilize ITM stimulus port 8 for debug printing. The data on port 8 is encapsulated in additional framing and will also appear in the Simplicity Studio Network Analyzer. 6.2.2 Host to Target Host to target communication utilizes SEGGER's Real Time Transfer (RTT) technology. A full explanation of how this works can be found in J-Link/J-Trace User Guide (UM08001). Briefly summarized, RTT consists of a structure called the RTT Control Block, which is located in RAM. This control block points to circular buffers that the debugger can write data into. The target application can then read data out of this circular buffer. The board controller will start searching for the RTT Control Block upon receiving data on TCP/IP port 4900. If the board controller is unable to locate the RTT Control Block it will return an error message on the same connection. For the board controller to be able to locate the RTT Control Block it has to be aligned on a 1024-byte boundary in RAM. After initializing the RTT connection the target will only enter emulated EM2 and EM3 where the power consumption remains similar to EM1. This is because RTT utilizes the debug interface which requires use of high frequency oscillators. Energy modes EM4S and EM4H will work as normal. When debugging energy consumption it is therefore important to not send data on TCP/IP port 4900 as not to instantiate the RTT connection. 6.2.3 Limitations • Because the SWO-connection can be disabled by the debugger at will, it is important for the target application to verify that SWO is enabled and configured before each transmission on the interface. • After initializing host to target communication over RTT by sending data on TCP/IP port 4900 the target application will be unable to enter EM2 and EM3. This is because RTT utilizes the debug connection of the target. • VUART might not work reliably during an active debugging session. This is because there is contention over the target's debug inter- face, and the board controller will defer accessing the target until it is made available by the host debugger. • VUART is designed with the assumption that only the board controller will access the RTT control block. If the target application uses RTT for other purposes, such as Segger SystemView, please refrain from using VUART. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 21 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Board Controller 6.2.4 Troubleshooting Problem Solution

No data received after ending a debug session. After certain debugger operations the host computer manually disables SWO on the target in order to conserve power. This might cause SWO data to not appear if the target application initialized

silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 22

No data received after flashing a new application. SWO before the debugger has disconnected. Either press the RESET-button on the Wireless Start- er Kit to reset the target application, or make sure that the target application verifies that SWO is enabled and configured before sending any data.

Other issues Disconnect from TCP port 4900, press the RESET-button on the kit, then reconnect to 4900. If this does not fix the issue, try to restart the kit by unplugging and replugging the USB cable. UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Advanced Energy Monitor 7. Advanced Energy Monitor 7.1 Introduction Any embedded developer seeking to make their embedded code spend as little energy as the underlying architecture supports needs tools to easily and quickly discover inefficiencies in the running application. This is what the Simplicity Energy Profiler is designed to do. In real-time, the Energy Profiler will graph and log current as a function of time while correlating this to the actual target application code running on the EFR32. There are multiple features in the profiler software that allow for easy analysis, such as markers and statistics on selected regions of the current graph or aggregate energy usage by different parts of the application. 7.2 Theory of Operation The AEM circuitry on the board is capable of measuring current signals in the range of 0.1 μA to 95 mA, which is a dynamic range of almost 120 dB. It can do this while maintaining approximately 10 kHz of current signal bandwidth. This is accomplished through a com- bination of a highly capable current sense amplifier, multiple gain stages, and signal processing within the kit's board controller before the current sense signal is read by a host computer for display and/or storage. The current sense amplifier measures the voltage drop over a small series resistor, and the gain stage further amplifies this voltage with two different gain settings to obtain two current ranges. The transition between these two ranges occurs around 250 μA. The current signal is combined with the target processor's Program Counter (PC) sampling by utilizing a feature of the ARM CoreSight debug architecture. The Instrumentation Trace Macrocell (ITM) block can be programmed to sample the MCU's PC at periodic intervals (50 kHz) and output these over SWO pin ARM devices. When these two data streams are fused and correlated with the running appli- cation's memory map, an accurate statistical profile can be built that shows the energy profile of the running application in real-time. At kit power-up or on a power-cycle, an automatic AEM calibration is performed. This calibration compensates for any offset errors in the current sense amplifiers. LDO

Note: The 3.3 V regulator feedback point is after the 2.35 Ω sense resistor to ensure that the VMCU voltage is kept constant when the output current changes. Maximum recommended output current is 300 mA. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 23 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide Advanced Energy Monitor 7.3 AEM Accuracy and Performance The AEM is capable of measuring currents in the range of 0.1 μA to 95 mA. For currents above 250 μA, the AEM is accurate within 0.1 mA. When measuring currents below 250 μA, the accuracy increases to 1 μA. Even though the absolute accuracy is 1 μA in the sub 250 μA range, the AEM is able to detect changes in the current consumption as small as 100 nA. The AEM current sampling rate is 10 kHz. Note: The AEM circuitry only works when the kit is powered and the power switch is in the AEM position. 7.4 Usage The AEM data is collected by the board controller and can be displayed by the Energy Profiler, available through Simplicity Studio. By using the Energy Profiler, current consumption and voltage can be measured and linked to the actual code running on the EFR32 in realtime. silabs.com | Building a more connected world. Rev. 1.0 | 24 UG431: EFR32xG22 2.4 GHz 6 dBm QFN32 Wireless Starter Kit User's Guide On-Board Debugger 8. On-Board Debugger The Wireless STK Mainboard contains an integrated debugger, which can be used to download code and debug the EFR32. In addition to programming a target on a plug-in radio board, the debugger can also be used to program and debug external Silicon Labs EFM32, EFM8, EZR32, and EFR32 devices connected through the debug connector. The debugger supports three different debug interfaces for Silicon Labs devices: • Serial Wire Debug is supported by all EFM32, EFR32, and EZR32 devices • JTAG is supported by EFR32 and some EFM32 devices • C2 Debug is supported by EFM8 devices In order for debugging to work properly, make sure that the selected debug interface is supported by the target device. The debug con- nector on the board supports all three of these modes. 8.1 Host Interfaces The Wireless Starter Kit supports connecting to the on-board debugger using either Ethernet or USB. Many tools support connecting to a debugger using either USB or Ethernet. When connected over USB, the kit is identified by its J-Link serial number. When connected over Ethernet, the kit is normally identified by its IP address. Some tools also support using the serial number when connecting over Ethernet; however, this typically requires the computer and the kit to be on the same subnet for the dis- covery protocol (using UDP broadcast packets) to work. 8.1.1 USB Interface The USB interface is available whenever the USB Mini-B connector on the left-hand side of the mainboard is connected to a computer. 8.1.2 Ethernet Interface The Ethernet interface is available when the mainboard Ethernet connector in the top left corner is connected to a network. Normally, the kit will receive an IP address from a local DHCP server, and the IP address is printed on the LCD display. If your network does not have a DHCP server, you need to connect to the kit via USB and set the IP address manually using Simplicity Studio, Simplicity Commander, or J-Link Configurator. For the Ethernet connectivity to work, the kit must still be powered through the USB Mini-B connector. See Section 4.2 Board Controller Power for details. 8.1.3 Serial Number Identification All Silicon Labs kits have a unique J-Link serial number which identifies the kit to PC applications. This number is 9 digits and is normal- ly on the form 44xxxxxxx. The J-Link serial number is normally printed at the bottom of the kit LCD display. silabs.com | Building a more connected world.

The same connector can also be used to connect an external debugger to the EFR32 Wireless SoC on the kit by setting debug mode to [In]. Selecting the active debug mode is done in Simplicity Studio.

If the USB power is disconnected, the Debug IN mode will stop working. If debug access is required when the target is running off another energy source, such as a battery, and the board controller is powered down, make direct connections to the GPIO used for debugging. This can be done by connecting to the appropriate pins of the breakout pads. Some Silicon Labs kits provide a dedicated pin header for this purpose. silabs.com | Building a more connected world.
