Introduction

This guide will help you get the RED-V RedBoard or Thing Plus up and running for the exhaust port. Depending on personal preference, there are a few environments to get started with the boards. All wings report in... we're going in full-throttle.

Warning: Do NOT attempt to reprogram the NXP K22 ARM Cortex-M4. It has proprietary Segger firmware flashed onto the chip, which allows it to upload programs to the SiFive Freedom E310 core. Reprogramming the NXP K22 ARM Cortex-M4 will overwrite the firmware and you will no longer be able to reprogram the board. To replace the firmware, you will need to purchase a license from Segger along with one of their programmers.

Required Software

Computer with Freedom Studio installed on it or a Zephyr RTOS build environment set up - that is how we will program the board and interface with it.
