Where do I download connection manager?

I am reading through the documents "UM-B-051_DA1458x_Software_Platform_Reference_1v2.pdf" (Seciotn 3.1~4.8, 11, as suggested in section 3.2) and "UM-B-050_DA1458x_Software_Developer's_Guide_1v1.pdf" as I am a complete beginner in BLE as well as DA14580

I have already installed the SDK, Keil uvision 5 and SmartSnippets Studio, but I cannot see Connection Manager in the "Software and Tools tab" under Tools

There is a link to "Connection Manager v 3.0.8" under Previous Software Releases

Is this where we are supposed to download it from, or is there an updated version available? As I mentioned I am complete beginner and do not want to download a wrong version.

Please suggest what I should do.

Thank you

Hi mahaju,

Hi mahaju,

The Connection Manager is a quite obsolete software and it's not maintained anymore, you will be able to download the latest version from the "Previous Software Releases" section.

Thanks MT_dialog

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply

So it's not necessary to download connection manager? Is it's functionality now included in SmartSnippets studio?

Hi mahaju,

Hi mahaju,

No, the tool is not included in the Smart Snippets toolbox (only a part of it named RF master), the Connection Manager is just a tool that acts as a generic external central or peripheral and provides some basic functionallities, its not neccesary to use it, its just for testing and experimenting.

Thanks MT_dialog

Hi marvin_tang,

Hi marvin_tang,

You are not able to download correctly the Connection Manager V3.0.8 from the Previous Software Releases page because your access into the connectivity forum is not granted yes. Please download it again and hit into the padlock that will appear from the download. After that you will have to agree with the License Agreement and the you should wait until your access will be granted.  

Thanks, PM_Dialog

Hi astraker,

Hi astraker,

The Connection Manager is not supported anymore and there is not available on our support website, as it was used for SDK3 which is a very old version. Currently, the latest SDK for DA14580 products is SDK5.0.4 and you can download it from the DA1580 support portal. However, for new designs, we strongly recommend the usage of DA14585/6 product family and our new SDK6 (latest version 6.0.10). Please take a look:

https://www.dialog-semiconductor.com/products/connectivity/bluetooth-low-energy/smartbond-da14585-and-da14586

You will find grate variety of tutorials, software examples and detailed documentation that will help you to getting started, understanding the software architecture and the create your own BLE applications.

Since this is a quite old forum thread, I would suggest you to create a new one if you have any follow up questions. If you don’t know the procedure you should follow, please let me know.

Thanks, PM_Dialog
