Get Started with the S32K-ISELED

Evaluation path

If you are NOT using AUTOSAR:

1. Buy your ISELED-ADK from Element14

ISELED Evaluation Kit Dominant with LED bar -- Digital Controllable RGB LEDs (calibrated to D65 white point and 24 bit color space) with 16 dominant LEDs

NOTE: The S32K1xx EVB included in the ISELED ADK contains a standard (non-ISELED) S32K MCU sample. Standard S32K MCU samples can only be used with the free Evaluation version of the ISELED software driver which has the following restriction: mandatory driver re-initialization after 10,000 ISELED commands.

2. Download the S32 SDK ISELED driver Installation Guide

The step-by-step guide to integrate the S32 SDK ISELED driver into the S32 Design Studio.

3. Get the S32 Design Studio IDE for Arm® based MCUs

A complimentary straightforward Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tool with no code-size limitations that enables editing, compiling, and debugging of designs.

4. Update the S32K Software Development Kit inside S32 Design Studio

Follow the S32 SDK ISELED driver Installation Guide (from step 2).

5. Download the S32K SDK ISELED driver

NOTE: S32K SDK ISELED driver is not integrated as part of standard S32 SDK installation.

6. Download the FreeMASTER run-time debugging tool

A user-friendly real-time debug monitor and data visualization tool allowing you to run the S32K SDK ISELED sample code.

If you are using AUTOSAR:

1. Buy your ISELED-ADK from Element14

ISELED Evaluation Kit Dominant with LED bar -- Digital Controllable RGB LEDs (calibrated to D65 white point and 24 bit color space) with 16 dominant LEDs

NOTE: The S32K1xx EVB included in the ISELED ADK contains a standard (non-ISELED) S32K MCU sample. Standard S32K MCU samples can only be used with the free Evaluation version of the ISELED software driver which has the following restriction: mandatory driver re-initialization after 10,000 ISELED commands.

2. Get the AUTOSAR (Classic Platform) Software for S32K devices

Software solutions addressing the challenge of rising code complexity by providing an open automotive software architecture.

2.1 Install AUTOSAR Tresos Studio

AUTOSAR Tresos Studio is embedded in NXP AUTOSAR (Classic Platform) Software

2.2 Install MCAL

The Microcontroller Abstraction Layer software module to directly access on-chip S32K1x peripherals.

3. Get the S32K AUTOSAR MCAL ISELED driver

NOTE: Check both User Manual and the Integration Guide in the MCAL ISELED driver download package.

Production path

Buy the required S32K1 MCU ISELED-enabled part numbers from NXP.

Part number includes license for evaluation and production phases with full functionality available.
