I purchased the Debugger DevPack in hopes that I could use it for both debugging and as a convenient way to prototype additional hardware connected to the SensorTag using the unpopulated pcb header included on the Debugger DevPack PCB. I want the Sensortag to work when there is no USB connection to the Debuger DevPack.It is working as a debugger, but unfortunately when I unplug the USB cable, the SensorTag does not run. Is it held in reset or something? Is there a way around this? (hardware modification?)
If not, is there a blank prototyping DevPack with just a breakout connection to IO pins and some proto-board space?
Please be sure to mark the thread as answered if your question was answered :)
In reply to Tim C:
The SensorTag is running fine when the Debugger DevPack is not attached. As soon as I attach it (without USB connected) it stops. No LEDs are lit and no bluetooth advertising.
FYI: I bought 5 sets of these from Arrow. I have verified the same behavior on two.
The sticker on DebuggerDevPack says Rev.:1.2.0 1520
The sticker on SensorTag says BLE Rev.: 1.1.3 1516

Hi Paul, I am having a sensorTag runing with the Debug devpack attached. (I did not touch the battery) - try the Debug DevPack reset button - try to detach it then re attach it - try to switch the SensorTag off and on - side buttons (stops and starts advertising) ? I flashed the SensorTag with usb, it was running still attached, I detached the USB, it was not running anymore as you describe, reset didn't seem to help, I removed the debug devPack, switch off and on the sensor, it was running, reattach the debug devpack, then, not sure if I had to push the reset switch of the debug -(small black point on yellow circle).
Edit : as mentioned in later post, this worked but not reproducible, I don't know what is influencing this.
Hope this helps. Wassim

The SOC-BB board is made for earlier CC radios, not the CC26xx. However it will give you access to several of the DIOs, but there will also be several DIO and other signals that will be GND that you do not want connected to GND. For instant the JTAG_TMS is conncected to GND, JTAG_TCK, TDI and TDO are not connected to anything on the SOC-BB so it is not a straight forward solution. How will you program your CC2650 on the EMK without a SmartRF06EB board?
Back to your original set-up with the debugger devpack, why can you not connect it to the USB? It is not designed to be used without USB power, so if not connected to the USB, you need to make sure to set the CC2650 pins that are connected to the TIVA so that you do not power this from the IO pins.
