    The VisualGDB support for the TI CC3220 MCU references TI’s SimpleLink v1.40.01 from about the middle of 2017.  TI has since released two subsequent versions (now 1.60.00.04), I was wondering if you have any plans to update your BSP to the current version?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    No problem, we have updated our BSP to the latest SDK. You can install the new package via Tools->VisualGDB->Manage VisualGDB Packages.

    TI’s SimpleLink SDK has gone through several more revisions — they are now at v4.10.00.07.  Do you have plans to update your BSP to the current version?

    I’m not sure if it’s related to the out-of-date BSP, but I just tried updating the ARM toolchain and OpenOCD to your latest and I can no longer debug my CC3220 device.  Just prior to updating this morning I had confirmed that everything worked.  I took a screenshot prior to the update that shows my original and updated versions (attached as VisualGDB Packages.png).

    Thanks,

    AJ

    Hi,

    The CC3220 devices have a considerably smaller user based compared to mainstream device families, such as STM32, hence we indeed don’t update the CC3220 BSP as often.

    We should be able to update our CC3220 BSP based on the latest SDK from TI (and also help you resolve any OpenOCD issues you get), however we would kindly ask you to renew your license first.

    Yes of course, sorry – I didn’t realize our support had expired 2 weeks ago.  I have renewed our license.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for renewing your license.

    We have updated our CC3220 BSP based on the latest SDK from TI (v4.20.00.07). You can install it via Tools->VisualGDB->Manage VisualGDB Packages. Please also ensure you use the latest VisualGDB 5.5 Preview 7.

    We have retested it with CC3220 Launchpad using the latest OpenOCD (0.10.0 2020-07-01) and it did work as expected, aside from the “most device registers are zero” error that can be safely ignored for CC3220. If it doesn’t work on your side, please share a screenshot of the error you get and we will help you resolve it.

    I have updated and I can confirm the network terminal example works on the CC3235 and verfied wifi working on channel 36.

    I now have a sensible environment to do embedded 5GHz wifi development which is very welcome!

    I too have renewed license, well worth it. As always, one step ahead of the competition, many thanks.

    I agree, this update appears to be working fine on my CC3220SFMOD.  I have seen a couple of build issues, but I suspect they are due to the VisualGDB update and not the BSP update.  In any case, I have reported these under a separate ticket at https://sysprogs.com/w/forums/topic/build-errors-after-upgrading-to-visualgdb-5-5-preview-7/.

    Thanks,

    AJ
