The Kinetis® Design Studio (KDS) is a complimentary integrated development environment for Kinetis MCUs that enables robust editing, compiling and debugging of your designs. Based on free, open-source software including Eclipse, GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), GNU Debugger (GDB), and others, the Kinetis Design Studio IDE offers designers a simple development tool with no code-size limitations. Furthermore, Processor Expert® software enables your design with its knowledge base and helps create powerful applications with a few mouse clicks.
Additional and new device support is installed through the Kinetis Software Development Kit (SDK).
