Let's take your DEVKIT-MPC5744P for a test drive!
1.1 Attach the USB Cable
1.2 Run the Out-of-Box Demo
Your DEVKIT-MPC5744P comes pre-loaded with a demo. The EVB uses the ADC
result from the potentiometer RV1 to control the RGB LED. As you turn
RV1, a different combination of LEDs will be on.
Jump Start Your Design by downloading Quick Start Package
Download includes Quick Start Guide, Software Integration Guide,
Schematics and Sample Examples to kick start your design.
2.2 Install Your Toolchain
NXP offers a complimentary toolchain called S32 Design Studio (S32DS).
2.3 PC Configuration
Some example applications output data over the MCU UART so you'll want
to make sure that the driver for the board's virtual COM port is
installed. Before you run the driver installer, you MUST have the board
plugged in to your PC.
With the serial port driver installed, run your favorite terminal
application to view the serial output from the MCU’s UART.
Configure the terminal to 19200 baud rate, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1
stop bit. To determine the port number of the DEVKIT-MPC5744P’s
virtual OCM port, open the device manager and look under the "Ports"

Note: these tutorials are generic, so specific values like baud
rates and data bit configurations may not apply to DEVKIT-MPC5744P
code examples. For specific instructions for each code example,
check the comments in each example project.
