We are developing a wearable device and decided to give the DA1468x SOC a try. However, we are more than frustrated with the SDK, docs, and tool chain.
That said, we have worked out how to create copied workspaces, projects, figured out all the little quirks of the IDE and SDK, and written some very complex SD card driver code for example.
Now, we would like to make some power measurements and we can't seem to get Smartsnippets Toolbox to work at all.
When we first installed the entire system (2 months ago) and went thru the painstakingly overlycomplex loading and installation of the 3rd party tools, dependancies, etc. we tried the "freertos" template, got an LED to blink, and everything worked.
We then tried running Smartsnippets Toolbox Power Profiler with the LED demo, it WORKED. As did ozone and systemview...
NOW, however, after a couple months of learning this SOC and SDK, when I try to get Smartsnippets Toolbox to measure power, it simply doesn't work.
The application loads and (extended sleep demo) launches, I create a NEW file, I select the correct SOC, then I select UART, UART/SPI, JTAG, HYBRID (I have tried them ALL).
The application opens, I go to the Profile Power tab, but everything is GRAYED out, the "Initialize" button is grayed out.
No matter what, seems that the profiler application is not "connecting" to the Dev Pro Kit?? I have tried with half a dozen other projects, and demos, doesn't seem to matter what is loaded as firmware, the Smartsnippets Toolbox is not working..."
Very frustrated -- please help?
