Cannot Select SL808XT In Auto Detection

Hello,
I have been trying to develop using a SL8080T but cannot select the module in the New Project Wizard. It shows up but I can’t select it to move on with the process. I have updated all of my packages but nothing seems to be helping. Could someone please help me resolve this issue?
Thanks.

Hi,

We have to know the port number in which SL808xT connected.

Are you using UART or USB interface?
Can you check the port number (COMx) and click the same in the auto detection tab in Developer Studio?

In additional, you can simply pick up “SL808xT” in the user selection tab? as you know which hardware you are using.

Thx

The port number is COM11. “SL808XT” does not show up in the user selection tab. The auto detection tab is the only place it shows up.

After clicking to identify the port I got the error:

Open and load local port COM11 => ERROR: null
java.lang.NullPointerException

and once SL808XT shows up as a module I can not click the check box to move forward with the project creation.

Hi,

Has there been any resolution to this? I’m having almost the same problem. I have the AirPrime development kit with the SL8080 module inserted. I have a USB connection to provide a number of virtual COM ports and I can send AT commands over the command channel (COM11). There is also COM8 (CNS), COM9 (DM) and COM10 (NMEA).

Unfortunately, the Open AT software doesn’t recognize the board using auto detect, it doesn’t give me any 80xx choices in the user selection field and when I try to mimic the “Hello World” tutorial, I don’t even get the same menu options when I choose a new Open AT project. I have the latest software version installed.

What am I supposed to do when absolutely nothing works as promised?

Hi Sierra Wireless Team,

I am having the same issue as Michael pointed out:
“Unfortunately, the Open AT software doesn’t recognize the board using auto detect, it doesn’t give me any 80xx choices in the user selection field and when I try to mimic the “Hello World” tutorial, I don’t even get the same menu options when I choose a new Open AT project. I have the latest software version installed.”

Does the latest Open AT software even support SL8080?
If so, can anybody from the team provide instructions on using SL8080 with the Open AT software?

Thanks

Can I get some assistance with this please? We purchased this kit directly through Sierra Wireless so there is no distributor to contact as your support page recommends. We must go directly through you. If there is a number I can call or a support email for this kind of thing, please direct me to that information.

Thanks,

Michael

I managed to get further by going into the Packages Manager and downloading everything possible. Once in a while, I will get the COM ports to show up in the auto detection window. I can then open that port and it will detect my SL808X module. Unfortunately, I can’t click on it or move any further.

I brought up the status window for COM8 and I can see the firmware revisions, time, memory size, build dates, etc… The EVM is definitely functional but I cannot get the software to work as it should. Why can I not select the check box for this module and at least get a new project open?

I should also mention that I use Windows 7 so the OS is supposed to be supported by your Open AT software.

Sorry for late update.

Seems like the software package for SL808xT is missing, please refer to below thread to add it and download the latest package.

Thank you lotam. I was finally able to get a “Hello World” app going and view the message on UART2.

It’s sad that a two year old thread is the key to solving this problem. I hope SW gets this straightened out in their next release as it doesn’t give me a huge amount of confidence going forward with this project and what problem will come next. Thanks again for getting me to a point where I can start evaluating the hardware.
