Codeless firmware for DA14531 Module / Kits

Hello. Thanks for the recent release of the DA14531 Preview Module kits.

We received our 2 new module based kits yesterday and wish to test out the CODELESS support on this module. So far unable to locate the CODELESS SDK referenced in the documentation.

http://lpccs-docs.dialog-semiconductor.com/UM-140-DA145x-CodeLess/howToUse.html

webpage notes we should reflash the module with one of the following firmwares (BTW - the online blinky worked fine to flash the local LED @ D5):

  1. CodeLess for DA14531 datapump (codeless_531_datapump.hex)
  2. CodeLess for DA14531 standalone (codeless_531_standalone.hex)
  3. CodeLess for DA14531 standalone SET TWO (codeless_531_standalone_set_two.hex

 

The downloaded DA14585_DA14531_CODELESS_v_6.380.9.10 does not offer the above pre-compiled .hex files.

Do we need to compile them with the Keil compiler or they can be downloaded from Dialog?

The same download does offer fw_1.hex and fw_2.hex files - are they related to the above?

Will keep searching - most likely have too many open webpages and missing the obvious.

Also, when are the modules (only) expected to be available in distribution? Did not see them on Digikey / Avnet.

Thanks.

The pre-compiled (CODELESS)

The pre-compiled (CODELESS) .hex files do appear to be missing from the downloaded SDK for the DA14531 / 585 use. Need the Keil compiler to compile from source.

Was unable to build the 586 firmware but not required for our project - Update: Dialog noted this firmware will not build at this time.

Attaching the compiled firmware here for others to use. Update: Reposted with the current CMSIS service pack update.

Not sure at this time on how to build the 3rd version of the CODELESS firmware (codeless_531_standalone_set_two.hex).

Welcome the feedback on how to build the codeless_531_standalone_set_two.hex firmware.

 

List of pre-compiled binaries provided with the SDK are:

  1. CodeLess for DA14585 (codeless_585.hex)
  2. CodeLess for DA14531 datapump (codeless_531_datapump.hex)
  3. CodeLess for DA14531 standalone (codeless_531_standalone.hex)
  4. CodeLess for DA14531 standalone SET TWO (codeless_531_standalone_set_two.hex)

Hi mom2,

Hi mom2,

Thanks for your question online and glad that you are using the TINY Module.

We are correct -  the binaries are not provided, so you should use the Keil IDE and compile the project. In the meanwhile thanks for the attachments. The Keil project is under DA14585_DA14531_CODELESS\v_6.380.9.10\projects\target_apps\codeless\codeless_5xx\Keil_5 path.

Your feedback would be more than welcome!

>>Also, when are the modules (only) expected to be available in distribution? Did not see them on Digikey / Avnet.

I’ll ask internally and get back to you.

Thanks, PM_Dialog
