The NuMaker Platform is an Internet of Things (IoT) application focused platform specially developed by Nuvoton. It supports Arm® Mbed® OS 5.5 as well as Arduino interface, and is ideal for arrays of IoT application development for prototype development designs with sensors and wireless modules.

The NuMaker-PFM-NANO130 is also equipped with plenty of peripheral devices, such as timers, watchdog timers, RTC, USB, PDMA, UART, SPI, I²C, I²S, PWM, GPIO, 12-bit ADC, EBI, LCD driver, 12-bit DAC, temperature sensor, low voltage reset controller and brown-out detector. The NuMaker-PFM-NANO130 also supports USB 2.0 FS device. The NuMaker-PFM- NANO130 has been designed by Nuvoton in collaboration with Mbed® for prototyping all sorts of devices, especially those requiring ultra-low power and excellent performance offered by Cortex®-M0. It is packaged as a development board with connectors to break out to strip board and breadboard. /media/uploads/nuvoton/numaker-pfm-nano130_board_pinout_image_all.png

ICE Firmware Update

DAP Link Interface Firmware Update

The board is fitted with an NUC12SRE3DE MCU running the DAPLink interface firmware to provide three main functions over a single physical USB connection.

  • USB disk “drag and drop” programming – ideal for fast prototyping or in-field upgradable products.
  • Debug interface using the Nu-Link – provides full debug capability with tools like Keil MDK.
  • USB serial interface between the host computer and the target.

Firmware History

Currently no update required.

Upgrade Procedure

  1. Set MSG switch (No.4 of ISW1 on ICE) to ON. (It should be default at ON position) /media/uploads/morgandu/nulink_ice_msg_on.jpg
  2. Download NuMaker ICE firmware file Download
  3. There is ICE firmware file "NuLink1FW.bin"
  4. Keep pressing DAP button and connect the USB port to your PC. A Nu_Link drive will be mounted. (Not Mbed drive) /media/uploads/morgandu/nu_link_drive.png
  5. Copy the "NuLink1FW.bin" to the Nu_Link drive.
  6. When copy done, disconnect USB.
  7. Done.
