AT Client Sample

Precompiled Binary

Note: you can get a pre-build binary file compiled using v1.3.2 here.

Instructions

Change directories to ncs/nrf/samples/nrf9160/at_client. Then compile as shown beffore in the compiling section of this guide.

Before you do compile make sure that the following lines are added to the prj.conf:

# Enable Zephyr application to be booted by MCUboot
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_MCUBOOT=y

This will enable support for the bootloader. Then, build using the build command:

west build -b circuitdojo_feather_nrf9160ns

...

Note: having trouble building? Make sure you check out the troubleshooting page.

You can see towards the end of this output that both the application and the bootloader have been built and merged.

Programming can be completed with newtmgr:

newtmgr -c serial image upload build/zephyr/app_update.bin

During testing, it's recomended to use the LTE Link Monitor whenever you need to manually test or execute commands.
