Board Introduction

The NuMaker-IoT-M263A developing board, is launched to speed up product design cycle with the IoT software package provided by Nuvoton, connecting the cloud of Arm Pelion, Amazon AWS, and Ali-Cloud is easy to use. 

The NuMaker-IoT-M263A consists of two parts, the M263 platform with popular on-board wireless-connectivity/sensor modules, and an on-board Nu-Link2-Me debugger and programmer. The NuMaker-IoT-M263A allows users to quickly develop IoT ( Internet of Things ) related products and easily program and debug application. 

The main microcontroller of NuMaker-IoT-M263A is M263KIAAE, with low power and robust security features. The NuMaker-IoT-M263A provides Arduino UNO compatible extension connectors, various power supply option and ammeter connector, makes it is easy to extend functionality and take current consumption measurement 

The NuMaker-IoT-M263A provides popular wireless connectivity modules that used in IoT applications, include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LoRa modules. The NuMaker-IoT-M263A also supports a mini PCIe connector for inserting external modules to realize 3G/4G/NB-IoT connectivity functions, such as QUECTEL BG96/EC21 modules. Besides, the NuMaker-IoT-M263A integrates BOSCH environmental sensor and 9-axis sensor for acceleration, geo-magnetics, gas, barometric pressure, temperature and humidity sensing. Furthermore, the NuMaker-IoT-M263A supports CAN and RS485 transceiver for industrial control application. 

The Nu-Link2-Me is a debugger and programmer that supports on-line programming and debugging through SWD interface. The on-board 16 Mbit SPI Flash allows it to off-line program the target microcontroller. The Nu-Link2-Me provides virtual COM port ( VCOM ) function to print out messages on PC. The Nu-Link2-Me can be separated from NuMaker-IoT-M263A, allowing user to use it as a mass production programming tool.

Quick Start

1. Install the preferred toolchain. Please make sure at least one of the toolchains has been installed.
  - KEIL MDK Nuvoton edition M0 / M23
  - IAR EWARM
  - NuEclipse (GCC) ( Windows )
  - NuEclipse (GCC) ( Linux )
2. Download and install the latest Nuvoton Nu-Link Driver. Please install the Nu-Link USB Driver as well at the end of the installation.
  - Download and install Nu-Link_Keil_Driver when using Keil MDK.
  - Download and install Nu-Link_IAR_Driver when using IAR EWARM.
  - Skip this step when using NuEclipse.
3. Download and unzip the Board Support Package ( BSP ).
4. Hardware Setup
  (1) Open the virtual COM ( VCOM ) function by changing Nu-Link2-Me VCOM Switch No. 1 and 2 to ON.
   

  (2) Connect the ICE USB connector to the PC USB port through USB cable.
   

  (3) Find the “Nuvoton Virtual COM Port” at Device Manger.
   

5. Use the “Template” project as an example. The project can be found under the BSP folder.
  - M261_Series_BSP_CMSIS_V3.XX.XXX
    - SampleCode
      - Template
        - GCC
        - Keil
        - IAR
6. Open and execute the project under the toolchain. For detail setting, please refer to the NuMaker-M263KI User Manual.
7. User can see the result in the ternimal window on PC.
