Over the course of this year I’ve worked on a wearable project that utilizes a Silicon Labs Blue Gecko BGM113. I’ve also spent a bunch of time playing with my Thunderboard React and Thunderboard Sense 2.
Along the way, I think I’ve picked up a few things. As an old bloke who’s been in this embedded software caper for more than a quarter of a century, I figure I might have something worthwhile to share. Also, I absolutely love this stuff. Hence I’m launching into a series of posts.
I’ll probably cover a collection of Thunderboard-specific topics. Such as:
- Over The Air (OTA) Upgrades
- Secure OTA
- CR2032 Battery Level Measurement
- Apple Bluetooth Guidelines Compliance
- Power Optimization
- React MPU6500 DMP & Step Counter
- Sense 2 ICM20648 DMP & Step Counter
- OpenOCD for flashing from a Raspberry Pi
I’ll probably lurch into a few other more general areas in which I’ll just use the Thunderboard as an example. Like:
- Automated Testing with Robot Framework & PyGatt
- Continuous Integration
- Unit Testing (on-host)
- Automated software versioning
- AWS IoT Core
- Google Cloud IoT
You can play along at home, or you can grab the code, as it evolves, from here:
Right then. Let’s start with Thunderboard React – Over The Air (OTA) Upgrades.
