Get Started:

This BSP provides MDK 5 and IAR projects for developers and it supports the GCC development environment. Here's an example of the MDK5 development environment, to introduce how to run the system.

Hardware Connection:

Use a USB cable to connect the development board to the PC and turn on the power switch.

Compile and Download:

Double-click the project.uvprojx file, to open the MDK 5 project, compile and download the project to the board.

By default, the project uses the CMSIS-DAP to download the program, when the CMSIS-DAP connects the board, clicking the download button can download the program to the board.

Running Results:

Once the project is successfully downloaded, the system runs automatically. The green LED on the board will flash periodically.

Connect the serial port of the board to the PC, communicate with it via a serial terminal tool(115200-8-1-N). Reset the board and the startup information of RT-Thread will be observed:
