Flashing

There are two options to flash the PCA10056 board.

You must install OpenOCD before you will be able to flash the PCA10056 board with your TinyGo code. You should check OpenOCD Documentation for installation and configuration instructions.

Once you have installed it correctly, you will be able to flash the PCA10056 board with your TinyGo code.

  • Plug your PCA10056 into your computer’s USB port.
  • Build and flash your TinyGo program using tinygo flash -target=pca10056

Programs can be loaded onto the PCA10056 board using the nrfjprog command line utility program.

First install the J-Link Software and Documentation Pack from Segger: https://www.segger.com/downloads/jlink/#J-LinkSoftwareAndDocumentationPack

Then install the nRF5x Command-Line Tools: https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/guides/tools/nordic_segger.html#nrf5x-command-line-tools-installation

Once you have installed both of these correctly, you will be able to flash the PCA10056 board with your TinyGo code.

  • Plug your PCA10056 into your computer’s USB port.
  • Build and flash your TinyGo program using tinygo flash -target=pca10056 -programmer command
