Intel® Curie BSP

Intel® Curie BSP is the SDK that will help you developing software on Curie based boards, for example with the Arduino 101 board (AKA Genuino 101).

Curie BSP is the SDK dedicated to the wearable device. It is part of the Intel Software Platform for Curie which allows you to develop an End to End Application, from the Cloud, through the smartphone downto the Intel® Curie powered wearable device. For more information, visit https://iqsdk.intel.com/.

For now Curie BSP is compatible with the Arduino 101 board (see http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/do-it-yourself/arduino-101.html). Keep in mind that this configuration is unsupported by Arduino. After flashing a Curie BSP application, you won't be able to run an Arduino sketch anymore unless you restore the original firmware as indicated below.

The environment supports only the OS Ubuntu GNU/Linux as host.

Intel® Curie SoC documentation is available at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wearables/wearable-soc.html.

ONE TIME SETUP

Curie BSP needs a set of external projects to be built. The repo tool is currently used to fetch all the needed repositories.

Setup repo:

mkdir ~/bin wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo -O ~/bin/repo chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

In ~/.bashrc add:

PATH=$PATH:~/bin

Create your directory (eg. Curie_BSP):

mkdir Curie_BSP && cd $_

Initialize your repo:

repo init -u https://github.com/CurieBSP/manifest

Download the sources files:

repo sync -j 5 -d

Initialize the environment:

make -C wearable_device_sw/projects/curie_hello/ one_time_setup

Backup your original Arduino 101 Software:

To be able to run back Arduino sketches and reset your Arduino 101 board to factory settings, you need to prepare a backup of the original firmware. The backup method and the hardware setup is the same as the Zephyr project one. Refer to https://www.zephyrproject.org/doc/board/arduino_101.html. The Curie BSP includes the Zephyr OS Source code in 'wearable_device_software/external/zephyr' so, no need to download it again.

BUILD AND FLASH A PROJECT

Curie BSP must be built out-of-tree, in a dedicated output directory whose location is chosen by the end user.

The recommended procedure during development phase is the following:

Prepare your build environment:

mkdir -p ./out cd ./out

Setup your project, for example based on the curie_hello project:

make -f ../wearable_device_sw/projects/curie_hello/Makefile setup

Compile:

make image -j 32

Flash:

You first need to flash the bootloader on the board using JTAG. This have to be done only once:

make flash FLASH_CONFIG="jtag_x86_rom+bootloader"

Then you can flash your board using the standard USB port:

make flash then press the reset button on the board to start the flashing.

GENERATE DOCUMENTATION

To generate the documentation in the "doc" directory you can type:

make doc

Or you can generate and browse it directly using the default browser:

make doc_view
