Setting up your XM112¶
Finding the serial port¶
On Windows, use device manager to find the port which will be listed as
USB Serial Port. It’s most likely
x is 3 or higher. On Linux, it’s likely
x is 0 or some other integer.
PySerial has a simple tool for listing all ports available:
python -m serial.tools.list_ports
For detailed flashing instructions visit our developer page.
To get into the bootloader:
- Hold down the ERASE button
- Push the NRST button
- Release the NRST button
- Let go of the ERASE button
Now you should be able to flash the Module software (
acc_module_server.bin). After flashing, press the NRST button to reboot into the flashed software.
BOSSA on Linux¶
If you’re on Linux you likely will need to compile BOSSA on your own. Here’s how to do it on Ubuntu 18.04.
Get everything you need to build:
sudo apt update sudo apt install -y make build-essential
Clone the BOSSA repository to a suitable location (below we use the home directory):
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/shumatech/BOSSA.git
Go into to the repository:
bossac (the CLI tool):
make -j8 bossac
sudo ./bin/bossac -e -w -v -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -b /path/to/acc_module_server.bin
If you want the full BOSSA GUI, you will also need to install
libwxgtk3.0-dev before compiling with
