Connectors, Buttons and LED


Start-up and Software

The software for the XDK is available online. You can download the software from Downloads to get the latest software package and demos.

Download and Installation

Download the software package “XDK Workbench” from Downloads and start the installer. The software package contains all necessary components. Program examples, demos and a Toolbox are included.

Connecting XDK 110

Connect the USB cable that was included in delivery with the USB connector of your PC and the Micro-USB Connector of the XDK.


Functional Limitations

The device can be impaired or damaged if the power source is inadequate.

  • Do not use cables > 3 m
  • Use only certified USB power adapters

The XDK 110 uses the LED to show the following states:

After XDK 110 has been switched on the first time, a running light demo will start.

LED Green:

The green LED shows the charging status and cannot be controlled by software.

ContinuousCharging/Charging suspended by thermal loop
FlashingSafety timers expired
OffCharging done/Recharging after termination/IC disabled or no valid input power/Battery absent

The following LED are active if the XDK is in bootloader mode:

LED Yellow:

ContinuousBootloader mode active and USB connected; Driver loaded

LED Red:

ContinuousBootloader mode active
Flashing 5xNo valid application detected; XDK remains in bootloader mode

Connecting the Extension Board “XDK Gateway”


Connect the 26-pin cable that was included in delivery with the extension board to the 26-pin connector of the XDK 110. The extension board offers a simple way to implement additional functions. It is optimized for the use of breadboards.

Unfortunately, there is an error in the labelling of the “XDK Gateway” (Version V1.0) extension board delivered with XDK. Some of the pins names were swapped. The correct pin assignment is shown in the picture below. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this.


Getting Started

  • Start the software “XDK Workbench”
  • The “Welcome” screen will appear
  • If an XDK is connected, the XDK symbol will appear
  • Create your application
  • Click on the “Flash” Button. Your application will be transferred to the XDK
  • Check the output of the XDK by using the console of the “XDK-Workbench”

Flashing the XDK 110

The XDK 110 can only be programmed while in bootloader mode. To enter bootloader mode, press the “Flash” button. The software puts the XDK 110 in bootloader mode, flashes the program and reboots. If the software does not put the XDK 110 in bootloader mode, this can be done manually:

  • Switch off the XDK 110
  • Press Button 1
  • Hold down Button 1 and switch the XDK 110 back on

The red LED will light up. If a USB connection is already established, the yellow LED will also light up. Press the “Flash” button.


The software package contains three demos:

  • Data Logger: Storage of sensor data on a Micro-SD card
  • Virtual XDK: Renders an XDK that is connected to a tablet via Bluetooth. The XDK on the tablet moves analogously to the real XDK
  • Sensor Monitor: Shows a 2-D view of the raw sensor data (samples over time)


The Toolbox contains various function blocks and und algorithms, like filters, FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) and more. For example, the toolbox can help determine the spatial position of the XDK 110 by using the raw data from the gyroscope and the accelerometer.

API Documentation

The API documentation can be opened using the “Help” function of the “XDK-Workbench”.


Additionally, the J-link adapter “J-Link 9-Pin Cortex-M Adapter” can be purchased from Segger (http://www.segger.com). The adapter facilitates using JTAG to debug the program on the XDK 110. While ordering, refer to XDK 110 to get the right adapter.

Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure and further Information

The radiated output power of the device is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the device shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized.
