The planned release of MCUXpresso software and tools unifies thousands of Kinetis and LPC microcontrollers under a set of compatible tools that include: an open-source software development kit (SDK) with drivers, stacks, middleware and application examples; an easy-to-use integrated development environment (IDE) for editing, compiling and debugging; and a suite of system configuration tools for power optimization, pin multiplexing, system clocking, and more.
“We continue to listen and address the needs of the developer community. By unifying the development experience across our MCUs, we’re making Kinetis and LPC MCUs a true powerhouse portfolio for complete solutions,” said
The MCUXpresso IDE merges the best of the popular LPCXpresso and Kinetis Design Studio IDEs into one easy-to-use integrated development environment for Kinetis and LPC MCUs. The MCUXpresso IDE offers basic editing, compiling and debugging features with the addition of MCU-specific debugging views, code trace and profiling, multicore debugging, and more. Full-featured, free and low-cost professional editions will be available with debug connections to support Freedom, Tower, LPCXpresso boards and custom hardware platforms.
Expected availability is planned for
The MCUXpresso SDK is a pre-integrated and thoroughly tested collection of open-source software components for Kinetis and LPC devices with a growing set of sensor, NFC and connectivity stacks and drivers. Delivered as a package of user-selected components, developers can download an SDK built upon their MCU and evaluation board selection, software components, and preferred IDE. The MCUXpresso SDK, formerly known as the “Kinetis SDK”, is MISRA-compliant, utilizes static analysis tools, and includes system startup, peripheral drivers, wireless and wired connectivity stacks, middleware, real-time operating systems (RTOS), getting started guides, API documentation, driver and middleware usage examples and demo applications.
The MCUXpresso SDK comes with built-in support for the MCUXpresso IDE as well as other leading toolchains in the ARM ecosystem including IAR Embedded Workbench, ARM® Keil® MDK™, Atollic® TrueSTUDIO®, SOMNIUM® DRT, and more.
