Microcontroller Driver Suite v10.4 is a software management system that generates C code to create, configure, optimize, migrate and deliver software components, such as peripheral drivers, for Kinetis® and ColdFire®+ processors. The driver suite is delivered and installed as a comprehensive product with the Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) IDE. It is also available as an Eclipse plug-in for existing Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo) and Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) installations. The driver suite does not include a compiler or linker. You merge the generated code into a build system. This functionality is integrated into the CodeWarrior® tools. The driver suite provides the same kind of support for our ecosystem tools partners. This extends Processor Expert® software functionality to non-CodeWarrior IDE users for the supported platforms.
The Processor Expert technology packaged in the driver suite makes it much easier to optimize the low-level intricacies of a hardware platform. Eliminating the necessity for one-size-fits-all drivers, the driver suite allows you to design custom peripheral drivers ideally suited to your needs, without the need for extensive hardware knowledge.
