Low Power Application on SAM L21 Using Harmony v3 Peripheral Libraries: Step 5

< Back to Lab Start

Step 5: Generate Code


When all the previous steps are completed, click the Save button before generating the code.



Save the configuration in its default location when prompted.



Click on the Generate button to generate the code.



Click on the Generate button in the Generate Project window, keeping the default settings.


If prompted to save the configuration, click Save.



Save the configuration in its default location when prompted.



When the code is being generated, MHC's window, showing the code generation in progress, will appear on the screen.



Examine the updated project tree of the new generated code.


MHC will include all the MPLAB Harmony library files and generate the code based on the MHC selections. The generated code will add files and folders to your Harmony project. Among the generated code, notice the peripheral library file generated for ADC. Be aware that the same pattern is applied to all the peripheral libraries added to the project (RTC, SERCOM 2 (as I²C), SERCOM 3 (as USART), DMA, PM, EIC, EVSYS, SUPC, and PORT peripherals). MHC also generates the template main file (main.c).


Build the code by clicking on the Clean and Build button build_and_clean_icon.png and verify that the project builds successfully.

At this point, you are ready to start implementing your application code.
