An example application showing the use of Matter on the Texas Instruments CC13XX_26XX family of Wireless MCUs.
The CC13XX_26XX lock example application provides a working demonstration of a connected door lock device. This uses the open-source Matter implementation and the Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ CC13XX and CC26XX software development kit.
This example is enabled to build for CC2652R7 devices.
The lock example is intended to serve both as a means to explore the workings of Matter, as well as a template for creating real products based on the Texas Instruments devices.
This example application has a simple User Interface to depict the state of the door lock and to control the state. The user LEDs on the LaunchPad are set on when the lock is locked, and are set off when unlocked. The LEDs will flash when in the transition state between locked and unlocked.
Short presses (less than 1000ms) of the user buttons are used for requesting lock and unlock of the door lock. The left button (
BTN-1) is used to request locking. The right button (
BTN-2) is used to request unlocking.
Long presses (greater than 1000ms) of the user buttons are used for controlling BLE advertisements and resets. The left button (
BTN-1) is used to perform a factory reset of the device. The Right button (
BTN-2) is used to disable BLE advertisements (if enabled) or enable advertisements (if disabled).
Some initial setup is necessary for preparing the build environment. This section will need to be done when migrating to new versions of the SDK. This guide assumes that the environment is linux based, and recommends Ubuntu 20.04.
$ cd ~ $ wget https://software-dl.ti.com/ccs/esd/sysconfig/sysconfig-1.11.0_2225-setup.run $ chmod +x sysconfig-1.11.0_2225-setup.run $ ./sysconfig-1.11.0_2225-setup.run
Run the bootstrap script to setup the build environment.
$ cd ~/connectedhomeip $ source ./scripts/bootstrap.sh
It is necessary to activate the environment in every new shell. Then run GN and Ninja to build the executable.
Activate the build environment with the repository activate script.
$ cd ~/connectedhomeip $ source ./scripts/activate.sh
Run the build to produce a default executable. By default on Linux both the TI SimpleLink SDK and Sysconfig are located in a
ti folder in the user's home directory, and you must provide the absolute path to them. For example
/home/username/ti/sysconfig_1.11.0. On Windows the default directory is
C:\ti. Take note of this install path, as it will be used in the next step.
$ cd ~/connectedhomeip/examples/lock-app/cc13x2x7_26x2x7 $ gn gen out/debug --args="ti_sysconfig_root=\"$HOME/ti/sysconfig_1.11.0\"" $ ninja -C out/debug
Loading the built image onto a LaunchPad is supported through two methods; Uniflash and Code Composer Studio (CCS). UniFlash can be used to load the image. Code Composer Studio can be used to load the image and debug the source code.
Programming with CCS will allow for a full debug environment within the IDE. This is accomplished by creating a target connection to the XDS110 debugger and starting a project-less debug session. The CCS IDE will attempt to find the source files on the local machine based on the debug information embedded within the ELF. CCS may prompt you to find the source code if the image was built on another machine or the source code is located in a different location than is recorded within the ELF.
Download and install Code Composer Studio.
First open CCS and create a new workspace.
Create a target connection (sometimes called the CCXML) for your target SoC and debugger as described in the Manual Method section of the CCS User's Guide.
Next initiate a project-less debug session as described in the Manual Launch section of the CCS User's Guide.
CCS should switch to the debug view described in the After Launch section of the User‘s Guide. The SoC core will likely be disconnected and symbols will not be loaded. Connect to the core as described in the Debug View section of the User’s Guide. Once the core is connected, use the
Load button on the toolbar to load the ELF image.
Note that the default configuration of the CCXML uses 2-wire cJTAG instead of the full 4-wire JTAG connection to match the default jumper configuration of the LaunchPad.
Uniflash is Texas Instrument's uniform programming tool for embedded processors. This will allow you to erase, flash, and inspect the SoC without setting up a debugging environment.
Download and install UniFlash.
First open UniFlash. Debug probes connected to the computer will usually be displayed under the Detected Devices due to the automatic device detection feature. If your device does not show up in this view it my be disconnected, or you may have to create a New Configuration. If you already have a CCXML for your SoC and debug connection you can use that in the section at the bottom. Once your device is selected, click the
Start button within the section to launch the session.
Select the ELF image to load on the device with the
Browse button. This file is placed in the
out/debug folder by this guide and ends with the
*.out file extension.
Finally click the
Load Image button to load the executable image onto the device. You should be able to see the log output over the XDS110 User UART.
Note that programming the device through JTAG sets the Halt-in-Boot flag and may cause issues when performing a software reset. This flag can be reset by power-cycling the LaunchPad.
By default the log output will be sent to the Application/User UART. Open a terminal emulator to that port to see the output with the following options:
Once a device has been flashed with this example, it can now join and operate in an existing Thread network. The following sections assume that a Thread network is already active, and has at least one OpenThread Border Router.
For insight into what other components are needed to run this example, please refer to our Matter Getting Started Guide.
Interacting with the application begins by enabling BLE advertisements and then pairing the device into a Thread network.
To provision this example onto a Thread network, the device must be discoverable over Bluetooth LE. BLE advertising is started by long pressing the right button (greater than 1000ms), labeled
BTN-2 on the silkscreen. Once the device is fully provisioned, BLE advertising will stop.
Pairing this application with
ble-thread can be done with any of the enabled CHIP Controller applications. Use the information printed on the console to aide in pairing the device. The controller application can also be used to control the example app with the cluster commands.
