Energy Micro Examples
Energy Micro provide many example projects that can be used with CrossWorks in their Simplicity Studio. To use these examples:
- Download and install Simplicity Studio from Energy Micro's website .
- Start CrossStudio and install the EFM32 CPU support package if it has not been installed already.
- Start Simplicity Studio and from this select the example you want to use, then press the Source button to load the example solution into CrossStudio.
This package uses Energy Micro's CMSIS files exclusively for device headers and core support.
The EFM32 serial wire debug supports SW-DP and not JTAG-DP. The CrossConnect Lite and CrossConnect Classic support single-wire debug using the Cortex SWD Adapter which you can purchase from our website.
If you need to debug an EFM32G you can use a recent Segger J-Link. Alternatively, you can use an FTDI-based JTAG adapter, such as the JTAGkey or JTAGkey-Tiny, together with our Cortex SWD Adapter. Please check to ensure that your FTDI device is compatible with our adapter before attaching!
The flash loader does not support devices with 1KB of RAM (EFM32TG108F4 and EFM32TG110F4), use the EFM32 UART bootloader instead for these parts.
