Connecting a battery to the mangOH Yellow

I attended the Sierra Wireless Innovation Summit, on last Wednesday and Thursday. Which means that I got the opportunity to play with a mangOH Yellow board and Octave, and that I brought back home the board 🙂

Before starting to write my first own application, today I connected a lithium-ion battery to the board, and configured Octave to display charge status. Which took me less than one minute. Impressive.

Pysense: hardware setup in a virtual machine

I had to help someone starting a project which includes, among others, a Pysense board.

The development environment was Linux Mint 18.3, running in a VirtualBox virtual machine (VirtualBox version 5.2.26). The host system was a MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave.

One difficulty that the user may face with this environment relates to the USB device redirection. When the Pysense is switched to bootloader mode, for firmware upgrade, it stays in this mode less than 7 seconds, which is not long enough to configure VirtualBox.

mangOH Red: configuring Developer Studio

Introduction

In this article, we will see how to add Developer Studio, the Sierra Wireless Eclipse-based IDE, to the VM we built in previous article. By default, Developer Studio is configured for a previous version of Legato (the official production version). To be able to use the latest Legato version that we installed in previous article, some additional configuration must be performed. We will go through associated steps.

mangOH Red: using a Linux Mint VM for development

Updated: 13-May-2018

Introduction

To develop for the mangOH Red board, you can use an Ubuntu-based virtual machine, provided by the mangOH team. It turns out that I prefer Linux Mint to Ubuntu, mainly because of the window manager, and I wanted to start trying to understand how the mangOH development environment is structured and works. So I decided to set up my own development VM, based on Linux Mint.

In this article, I describe the various steps I followed to create this VM. Continue reading “mangOH Red: using a Linux Mint VM for development”
