{{Warningbox|These installation instructions are out of date! The new installation instructions can be found at, along with our software documentation.}} This page describes how to install the ChipWhisperer softwarebefore release 5.1.
There are five ways to set up ChipWhisperer:
* '''PyPi Package:''' <code>pip install chipwhisperer</code>. Only includes the software - doesn't come with the hardware source files, drivers, or example firmware.
* '''Git Repository:''' Get the latest, bleeding-edge features and bugs. Recommended if you're an experienced developer and you want to contribute to ChipWhisperer.
'''NOTE TO USERS WITH AN ARM TARGET:''' To build firmware, you'll need the GNU Embedded Toolchain For ARM. This is included with the VM. Otherwise please see '''Installing ARM Toolchain''' at the bottom of the page.
{{Warningbox|If you are installing 64-bit Python rather than 32-bit, and the ChipWhisperer software's graph widget's axis disappear, the fix is this: ''pip uninstall pyside'' and then ''pip install''. This uninstalls the current pyside package and installs the official QT Pyside package.}}
{{Warningbox|You may need to add ''--trusted-host'' to the ''pip install'' command to allow HTTP connections. This is done as follows for example: ''sudo pip install --trusted-host pyusb''}}
