Installing ChipWhisperer/Installing ChipWhisperer from Releases
Assuming you've got a working Python installation, the next step is to install & run ChipWhisperer itself. This requires you to get a copy of ChipWhisperer, you should download the Latest Release. Download & unzip the file somewhere. Note if you are adventurous you can clone the GIT Repository
git://git.assembla.com/chipwhisperer.git instead, but this may be broken so you should start with the latest release instead.
Generally 'somewhere' will become your ChipWhisperer working directory. These examples assume you've chosen
C:\chipwhisperer as your working directory.
Once you've got the file, we run the Python install procedure again (setup.py). We slightly modify it to use the develop command to reflect that the files will probably be changing frequently. Again open a terminal and run the following, adjusting paths as needed:
cd c:\chipwhisperer\openadc\controlsw\python python setup.py develop cd c:\chipwhisperer\software python setup.py develop
If you wish to confirm the installation worked, you can run ChipWhispererAnalyzer in the same terminal:
cd c:\chipwhisperer\software\chipwhisperer\ python CWAnalyzer.pyw
Alternatively you can just double-click on
CWAnalyzer.py from Windows explorer, which should run the file using Python, provided you've registered Python to execute the .py extension.
You can see a Video of the Installation Procedure:
As in the Windows release, you can download a complete ChipWhisperer software release. Alternatively you can clone the ChipWhisperer repository with git, which is very simple on Linux:
$ git clone git://git.assembla.com/chipwhisperer.git $ cd chipwhisperer $ git clone git://git.assembla.com/openadc.git
Be aware that the git code may be broken, although we try not to commit completely untested code to the master branch. Either way once you have the chipwhisperer directory somewhere, do the following from within that directory:
$ cd software $ sudo python setup.py develop $ cd ../openadc/controlsw/python $ sudo python setup.py develop
NB: This assumes the python command links to Python-2.7, and not Python-3.x. You may need to specify either python2.7 or python27 as the command instead of python to force this.
