Building firmware

The XMEGA uses AVR architecture and needs an AVR compiler. The target firmware can be found under the chipwhisperer/hardware/victims/firmware/ directory in their project (e.g. simpleserial-aes, basic-passwdcheck) folder.

To build the code, follow these steps:

  1. cd to the project directory with the firmware source (.c) and makefile, and run make:

    cd c:\chipwhisperer\hardware\victims\firmware\<project dir>

    where the <> part is changed to the project name.

    If this is successful, you'll see an output like the following:


    If instead you get an error something like make: *** No rule to make target `simpleserial.elf', needed by `elf'. Stop., this means a required file was missing.

  2. The compiled firmware file you will use to program the target will have the format <sourcefile name>-CW303.hex, where the <> part will change based on the project.
