Frequently Asked Questions

Are Qorvo’s Matter solutions compatible with Google and Apple?

Yes and you will find instructions on how to commission your Qorvo-based product in existing Matter ecosystems here:

Can I reuse Qorvo’s Vendor ID?

No, the Matter SDK uses a test Vendor ID (0xFFF1-0xFFF3) to easily develop and test Matter applications in the Google ecosystem. To release your product, you will need your own Production VID, which is issued to you by the CSA and registered to the ecosystem(s) you want to join.

If programming with J-Link fails…

The development kit comes with an onboard J-Link debugger to easily program and debug your application. The J-Link firmware can be updated by downloading the latest J-Link Software and Documentation pack from the SEGGER site and running any of the J-Link tools (e.g. J-Flash Lite) while the development kit is connected.

Learn how to debug with SEGGER Ozone here.

How much memory is available for development?

This depends on the reference application you started from and whether or not you’ve enabled debug logs. Please find descriptions of each application in our Matter Footprint Status doc.

Can I sniff Matter over Thread packets using Wireshark?

Short answer: No.

Long answer: You can capture Thread packets with an 802.15.4 sniffer and visualize this in Wireshark. The Matter payload (on top of Thread) however, will be encrypted with a session-based encryption scheme that follows the Matter standard. The SDK does not come with a sniffer, nor is there a sniffer available in the Matter group. This will have to be developed by the community.
