Can I set up the Wireless iBeacon Receiver to find any BLE device?


#21

Very nice! But I still can’t reach that server:

… so the image and the firmware file is not accessible. :frowning:

Here’s what downforeveryoneorjustme.com tells me:


#22

I’ve changed the domain for the file. Please try again.


#23

Great! :slight_smile: The firmware is there, but the image showing the connection is not. Can you change the location for the image too?

(Or perhapst just describe it using text?)

EDIT: No, wait. There it is.
EDIT2: No, it’s not. The U1 connector is not described. Which are RX, TX and Ground?


#24

I changed the domain name again. Please check if it’s ok.


#25

Yes, perfect! :smile:
hank you!


#26

I’m stuck. The AT+SBLUP command returned earlier the same command in green (now it doesn’t any more, perhaps it’s still in image load mode).

However, whatever I do, I only get tons of errors from “SerialBootTool”, whith the final one being “Device Command Response Timeout”.


#27

Please try to restart your computer. You must keep the serial port closed when opening the SerialBootTool.


#28

Yes, SerialBootTool gives a “port unavailable” error message when it’s already open in Termite.

Also: The first step (“power on the device”) refers to the iBeacon Receiver, right?


#29

Restart didn’t help (why should it?). What kind of reply should the AT+SBLUP command give?

I’ve tried both devices I have, the same happens with both.


#30

Have you inputed “AT+SBLUP” in previous steps? The module will not response to any input if you did it. You can skip that step and try SerialBootTool.


#31

OK, that makes sense. The units still work and report their findings like always.

I’ve tried with and without power connected via mini-USB:

  1. if connected to power, SerialBootTool gives error messages as soon as the port is opened or 2) if the power is not connected I get a handshake timeout error.

#32

No new tips og hints on this issue?


#33

Did the device response to any other AT command? Please test with AT+VERS? first


#34

Ok, I’ve given it yet another try!

Here’s what I get:

Steps to replicate, please see if I’m missing something:

  1. Connect the USB UART, it’s on COM3 on my machine
  2. Connect GND to GND, RX to TX, and TX to RX.
  3. Connect a mini-USB cable to the bottom of the device
  4. Start Termite with settings as shown in the picture.

Then no response. I get OK+SCAN from the unit, but it’s like it doesn’t receive commands. Should I press any buttons (I see a “Config” and a "Reset button)?


#35

It seems worked. The data is start with “OK+SCAN:”, end with “\r\n”. The beacon data is in hex format. For Termite, you can choose Plug-ins “Hex View” to observer the data.

the data format:

mac address : 6 bytes
rssi : 1 bytes
UUID : 16 bytes
major : 2 bytes
minor : 2 bytes
measured power : 1 byte

#36

But I don’t get a reply after AT+VERS?
And still no firmware update… :frowning:


#37

There’re so many “OK+SCAN” message. You can stop scan first by the command

AT+SCAN0

Then

AT+VERS?

#38

After ALOT of trying (and cursing), I’ve concluded that my USB UART device is not sending commands.

I’ve ordered a new one, and will try again.


#39

I’m sad this didn’t work for you. I’m sorry.


#40

I hade the same problem. I had used USB UART 5.0 V device and firmware was able to download.
