Setting up your XM132#
For detailed instructions, visit our developer page.
Finding the serial port#
On Windows, use device manager to find the port which will be listed as
USB Serial Port. It’s most likely
x is 3 or higher. On Linux, it’s likely
x is 0 or some other integer.
PySerial has a simple tool for listing all ports available:
python -m serial.tools.list_ports
Note that the XM132 has two serial ports. Usually, the first port is the one to use.
Windows COM port drivers#
If no COM port is recognized when plugging in a module, you might need to install a driver:
XM132: Silicon Labs
Download the module software from our developer page. In the archive
bin, you’ll find
acc_module_server.bin which is the file to flash.
We recommend flashing using the Python library stm32loader. Install it with:
python -m pip install --user stm32loader
Enter the bootloader by doing the following:
Hold down the DFU button
Push the RESET button
Release the RESET button
Let go of the DFU button
Now you should be able to flash:
stm32loader -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -e -w -v -g 0x08000000 acc_module_server.bin
/dev/ttyUSB0 with the serial port of your XM132.
