Power Supply
The ALPW-BLEM003 requires a 3.0V stable power supply. It can be powered through an internal
power supply regulator, or using the external 3V input (refer to the kit pinout). Note that the external
3.0V input is protected against over voltages, but one should ensure a proper filtering and
decoupling when using it.
Figure5.: ALPW-BLEEASYKIT power supply tree
Refer to the jumper configuration chapter to get the right configuration, depending on your
application.

Firmware development
4.1 Hardware setup
In order to download and debug embedded applications, the ALPW-BLEEASY Kit must be powered
using the USB connector (or an external input power) and a compliant SWD hardware debugger
(JLINK, ULINK, …) must be connected to the ALPW-BLEEASY Kit standard JTAG connector. Please
refer to the jumper configuration chapter in order to setup the kit properly.
The ALPW-BLEEASY KIT uses a standard 20-pin connector for MCU programming and debug.
The software can be downloaded using any SWD compliant tool (for example KEIL toolchain or the
GCC/ECLIPSE toolchain), please refer to the “ALPWISE BLE SDK for BLEM003 Overview”
documentation, part of the ALPW-BLESDKBLEM003 for more information to setup KEIL or
GCC/ECLIPSE
4.2
ALPWISE Bluetooth Low Energy SDK
The ALPW-BLEEASYKIT is delivered with the ALPW-BLEEASYSDE.
The ALPW-BLEEASYSDE is a software development kit containing the software and tool to exploit the
ALPW-BLEEASY Kit.
The ALPWISE Bluetooth® low energy SDK (ALPW-BLESDK) suite is a Software Development Kit which
enables developers to easily develop Bluetooth® low energy applications and provides facilities and
services to characterize the technology capability.
Used together with the ALPWISE Development Kits, developers get an easy way to develop, test and
validate their application on PC and on the embedded dedicated application microcontroller.
The ALPW-BLESDK ® for BLEM003 targets the ALPWISE Bluetooth® low energy module ALPWBLEM003. It allows an integrator to focus developing embedded Bluetooth® low energy applications.

The ALPW-BLESDK® for BLEM003 already includes and implements all the porting and
integration layers needed by the ALPW-BLEM003 in order to let the developer focus on the
application development.
Allow with the SDK, ALPWISE is providing a set of tools allowing the developer to quickly setup
its application.
Note: The ALPWISE SDK for BLEM003 is currently in BETA version and source
code, libraries and documentation will change since release.

The core stack library also includes all the Core stack required resources and HARDWARE
management and interaction, including ALPW-BLEM003 integration. As well, Bluetooth® Low Energy
Services and Profiles are available as libraries.
Application may access to the ALPWISE Bluetooth® Low Energy core stack API, GAP API, SMP API or
profile API to build a Bluetooth® Low Energy enabled Application.
4.4
Application development
The ALPWISE Software Development Kit includes high-level libraries, exposing easy to use and
comprehensive Application Programming Interfaces (API).
The libraries are targeted for Cortex-M0 microprocessors;
It exist two libraries for the core stack, and one library per service and per Profile. Profile library
will depend on service and core stack libraries.
The libraries are built with/for the free Gnu Compiler (gcc) toolchain and for the KEIL toolchain.
The ALPWISE Software Development Kit for BLEM003 includes as well sample application for
some of the profiles available, provided in source code
4.5
Software resources
Please refer to the “ALPWISE BLE SDK for BLEM003 Overview” documentation, this documentation
is part of the SDK and contain useful information to setup the development tools.
As well the Stack and profile documentation folder provides API guide and application notes to start
developing Low Energy enabled application.
