CW303 Target: CW-Lite XMEGA Target Section

The ChipWhisperer-Lite board has a break-away target board section. This is officially labeled as a separate target board, but for most users will be present on the development board.

The board looks as follows:

LEDs

The two LEDs on the XMEGA board are active-low, which is done to reduce the impact on power consumption in the VCC power signature. The connections are as follows:

Item Connection Note
LED9 PORTA.5 Active low
LED10 PORTA.6 Active low

Connectors

The following shows several of the connectors available on the CW301.

20-Pin Connector
J2 is a 20-pin connector, which uses the standard NewAE 20-pin connector pinout. See the ChipWhisperer-Lite documentation for details.
SMA Glitch
The SMA glitch connector allows VCC glitches be inserted into the VCC pin. This is done by shorting the resistive shunt R66. By default it connects to the SMA measure connector, but can be disconnected with the solder jumpers.
SMA Measure
The SMA measure connector allows power measurements to be taken across resistive shunt R66. By default it connects to the SMA glitch connector, but can be disconnected with the solder jumpers.
JP13
JP13 provides a pinout with several extra pins from the XMEGA device.

Solder Jumpers

SJ2
Selects the source of the input to the VCC filter - either the 20-pin 3.3V VCC (default), or the optional voltage regulator which derives the power from a USB-Micro connector.
SJ3
Connects the output of the VCC filter to the XMEGA VCC network. Soldered by default.
SJ4
Connects the SMA Measure header to the resistive shunt. Soldered by default.
SJ5
Connects the SMA Glitch header to the resistive shunt. Soldered by default.
SJ7
Connects the VCC of the XMEGA board to VREF on 20-pin header. Soldered by default.
