QSG115: CPT112S SLEXP8008A Kit Quick-Start Guide
Getting Started
1. Getting Started
• Install Simplicity Studio
Simplicity Studio is a free software suite needed to start developing your application. The various features of the device can be visualized using some of the inbuilt tools provided by the software. Download the latest version of Simplicity Studio from the Silicon
Labs website:
http://www.silabs.com/simplicity-studio
Note: The board comes pre-loaded with a default configuration that provides buzzer feedback when the capacitive sensing buttons
are pressed.
• Disable Auto-Detect in Simplicity Studio
The auto-detect feature in Simplicity Studio can cause a CPT device to miss touches. First disable automatic detection by clicking
the [Settings] icon, selecting [Device Manager]>[TCF Device Discovery], and selecting [Never] for [USB Discovery Options].
Kits can now be detected by clicking the [Refresh detected hardware] button, but they will not automatically appear when connected to the PC.
• Set Up Your Kit
1. Provide power to the board by connecting the DBG USB connector to the PC using the provided USB cable. When a connection
has been established successfully, the LED (marked in the picture) lights up.
2. Place the acrylic overlay on the board over the capacitive sense pads.
