After selecting a project on the Startup window, the Profile Editor opens to the Device Type definition window:
In the Define the Device Type section, complete the fields using the information in the table below:
|Device Type Name||
This name is a string; by default it assumes the name you gave it when creating the project, but you can change it here. Note that if you do change it here, the project name displayed in Profile Editor will also update to reflect the new name. Here are some important things to know about Device Type:
|Description||This description is a string, internal only and not displayed to the end-user. Type a description that is useful to you.|
|Project Folder||The directory on your local file system where your project is saved. You can’t edit the location; it’s displayed for information purposes only.|
|Header File Output||If you are using a device that has a separate MCU, a header file containing the device description (attributes) will be generated when you publish your project. By default, the header file will be saved to your project directory, but you can use this setting to save the header file to a different directory. For example, you might wish to save the file directly into the project directory for the associated MCU code (which will rely on the header).|
|Device Icon||This icon will be visible to the end-user. Select a meaningful image to represent your device. Click Select to see all available icons; highlight the icon you want then click Use This One! Your selected icon will be displayed in the Preview pane to the right, to give you an idea of how it will look on a smartphone. It will also be displayed to the left of your project name in the Navigation pane.|
The Power Optimization section provides controls and information regarding battery power consumption.
The Power Optimization calculations apply only to projects using either the Modulo-1 or Modulo-1B modules.
Every time you save, your data is validated. If validation fails for any reason, an error message will appear then move to the left. Click the error description in the message to highlight the field that needs correcting.
