8. Run the Pre-Loaded Demo

This section describes how to quickly get started with the DA1469x ProDK and run the preloaded demo.

  • Step 1 : Take the daughter board and Plug it to the to main board through the dedicated connector Figure 3. Take care to match the orientation.

  • Step 2: Connect a USB type A to mini-B USB cable on the micro USB header on the ProDK Main board to power On. The other side of the USB cable can be connected to a PC/Laptop (Figure 6).

  • Step 3: After the ProDK is powered, and if everything works fine then the following LEDs status can be seen as shown Figure 33

    • On the daughter board, Red LED 1 is blinking. The LED blinking periods in ms is defined in config/pxp_reporter_config.h

Figure 34 Pre-Loaded Demo: Interacting with BLE Application


In this example, we used an Android application but you can also use the LightBlue iOS application to connect an iPad/iPod/iPhone device to the application.


The number shown in Figure 34 is aligned with he number observed on the Terminal program Figure 10 for windows.

  • Step 6 As a Feature, alerting is done using the RED LED available on the daughter board, refer to Figure 33. After connection, you can write value to Alert Level characteristic in Immediate Alert service:

    • 0x00 (No alert) - the white LED on ProDK device does not blink

    • 0x01 (Mild alert) - the white LED on ProDK blinks slow immediately

    • 0x02 (High Alert) - the white LED on ProDK blinks fast immediately
