The XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet is a breakout board for the XMC1400 microcontroller from Infineon in the Bricklet form factor.
It can be used as a basis for prototypes of new Bricklets.
It has the standard Bricklet connector, a status LED, a 16Mhz crystal and a boot pad. The bootloader as well as an example firmware is already flashed. All available pins are routed out and can be accessed through a pin header.
If you want to develop your own Bricklet, you can use the XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet to get started without having to develop your own custom hardware first.
The XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet has a 7 pole Bricklet connector and is connected to a Brick with a 7p-10p Bricklet cable.
|Current Consumption||55mW (11mA at 5V)|
|Number of available IOs||42|
|Dimensions (W x D x H)||50 x 45 x 15mm (1.97 x 1.77 x 0.59")|
To test a XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet you need to have Brick Daemon and Brick Viewer installed. Brick Daemon acts as a proxy between the USB interface of the Bricks and the API bindings. Brick Viewer connects to Brick Daemon. It helps to figure out basic information about the connected Bricks and Bricklets and allows to test them.
Connect the XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet to a Brick with a Bricklet Cable.
If you connect the Brick to the PC over USB, you should see a new tab named "XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet" in the Brick Viewer after a moment. Select this tab. If everything went as expected you can now see the example brickviewer plugin.
After this test you can go on with writing your own application. See the Programming Interface section for the API of the XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet and examples in different programming languages.
This tutorial is unfortunately not yet ready. It is on our TODO list. If you are interested in it write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know that there is a demand for it.
We plan to write a tutorial that goes through the whole process of adding functions to the API, implementing them in the firmware and adding a GUI element for it in Brick Viewer through the following steps:
See Programming Interface for a detailed description.
