Hardware version:
XE8000MP-LF PCB_E013V04a and XE8000EV104

Free software version:

xeloader version is 3.3

Use XELOADER to download the file is OK.
A error( "failure reading monitor settings") occured when calibrate the chip in RIDE7.

I selected the device as XE88LC05A,and monitor library is checked in project properties.

The settings on x80board options dialog:
Dowload(and debug when soft UART):COM1/Debug(hard UART):soft
Program loading:Erase flash and load

It seems your version of the board does not support the debug feature.

Please read the answer from Semtech below...

Best Regards,


Set voltage:
This setting allows to set the Daughter board (XE8000EV104) voltage supply, in operating mode. This voltage switches automatically to 5V when the device is being programmed.

This EVK is a XE8000MP-LF (pcb_e013v04a). This means that the EVK is Lead Free. The debug/monitor feature isn't available on the Lead Free boards.

However older versions of the XE8000MP (pcb_e013v03a or older) which are not Lead Free do support this feature.

For additional support please contact directly Semtech ( )

For information: A new sensing SoC product line is in preparation. These new products will have embedded debug capabilities and will be fully supported by RIDE.
