CPU core: ARM Cortex®-M4 with FPU
Flash memory: 512 kB
RAM: 64 kB
Transmit power: up to 19 dBm
Operation frequency: 2.4 GHz, 915 MHz
Crystals for LFXO (32.768 kHz) and HFXO (38.4 MHz).
For more information about the EFR32FG13 SoC and BRD4255A board, refer to these documents:
Please refer to EFR32 Radio Board Supported Features for details of the configuration and common features supported by the efr32_radio_brd4255a board.
The default configuration can be found in the defconfig file:
The EFR32FG13P SoC is configured to use the 38.4 MHz external oscillator on the board.
The EFR32FG13P SoC has three USARTs and one Low Energy UARTs (LEUART). USART0 is connected to the board controller and is used for the console.
Programming and Debugging¶
Please refer to Programming and Debugging EFR32 Radio Board for details on the supported debug interfaces.
Connect the BRD4001A board with a mounted BRD4255A radio module to your host computer using the USB port.
Here is an example for the Hello World application.
# From the root of the zephyr repository west build -b efr32_radio_brd4255a samples/hello_world west flash
Open a serial terminal (minicom, putty, etc.) with the following settings:
Data: 8 bits
Stop bits: 1
Reset the board and you should see the following message in the terminal:
