Have you verified the terminal setup with a factory programmed unit? It should behave the same with a 115200-8-n-1-none setup.

Hi Steven,

Pages 21 to 24 of the user manual actually covers several different ways to access to chip through UART:

[]Connection through usb and Virtual com port
]Connection through J10 external pins
[*]Connection using a host board such as a raspberry pie 3
Can you give a bit more details about which connection you are trying to achieve ?

I’ve tried the following to connect through USB and VCOM and it worked well for me :

[code]// Connect board to computer, in virtual box, go to device -> USB -> check segger link (see page 17 of user manual)
dw@dw: pwd // Print work directory, must be in dwm-simple

dw@dw: make recover // Loading factory firmware on the device

wrote 3876 bytes from file …/…//recovery/bootloader_s132.bin
shutdown command invoked
// Unable/Enable device in Ubuntu to re-initialize it (repeat page 17 of user manual)
dw@dw: minicom -D /dev/ttyACM0 // if device busy keep calling minicom until it connects, once connect press enter twice. As Ken mentionned, if not working
// use minicom -s, and verify baud rate is set to 115200



Yes. I resolve the issue, my Ubuntu setup for the COM was wrong (9600-8-n-1) and I missing the double enter sequence. By changing my COM back to 11520-8-n-1 and with double enter it works! Thx!

Thx! I managed to get it works as well! Appreciate your confirmation too.

In case it helps:
I have had the same problem, I could not make the shell mode prompt to appear when pressing enter two times just after loading the firmware.
But I realized that I could make it work if I disconnected the USB cable and re-connected it. So I tried pressing the reset button (SW1) on the DWM1001-Dev board and it made it work. In other words: after flashing a new version of the firmware, just remember to press the reset button before trying to enter shell mode.
