BMDK User Guides


  • We’ve added a lot of detain to the Mote Firmware Update Guide, including how to use the swanky new buttons on the AD version of the Bristlemouth Development Board to force the processor into USB bootloader mode.
  • We’ve added an SWD-over-USB-C Guide, which explains how to obtain and use a very nice tool for advanced developers - an adapter that merges SWD signals from an STLink debugger onto USB-C pins. That way you can simultaneously run an SWD debugging session and USB serial console to your Dev Kit Mote over the same USB-C physical connection! :exploding_head:
