This article is presenting 2 parts:

   Part1: How to flash the HCI_bb binary into the Kinetis product (here is the example of the KW38).

   Part 2: Perform RF measurements using the R&S CMW270 

 

2 attached files:

   - bci_black_box.bin (zip file)

   - mbed_WinSerial.exe (zip file)

 

 

Part1: How to flash the HCI_bb binary into the Kinetis product (here is the example of the KW38).

The HCI_bb application example is on the SDK folder below:

Plug the FRDM-KW38 board on your PC using the USB cable.

The FRDM-KW38 board will be seeing as a hard disk. Disk in this example.

Select the hci_black_box_frdmkw38.bin file and drag and drop this file to the FRDM-KW38 (D:)

The FRDM-KW38 board is ready to be used with the DTM mode.

 

Part 2: Perform RF measurements using the R&S CMW270 

The FRDM-KW38 board could be connected to the R&S CMW270 using the USB cable.

The hci_bb set the KW38 in DTM mode.

The CMW270 could communicate by sending DTM commands.

Note: You need to install the mbedWinSerial driver (attached in this article) in the CMW270 to detect the FRDM-KW38 board.
