The mbed Compiler delivers full online editor. it provides a lightweight online C/C++ IDE that is pre-configured to let you quickly write programs, compile and download them to run on your mbed Microcontroller. The only weakness is that it doesn’t have debug feature. In fact, you don't have to install or set up anything to get running with mbed. Because it is a web app, you can log in from anywhere and carry on where you left off, and you are free to work on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, or all of them.

Currently, mbed Compiler support:

  • FRDM-KL25Z
  • FRDM-KL46Z
  • FRDM-KL05Z
  • FRDM-K20D50M
  • FRDM-K22F
  • Ethernet IoT Starter Kit

This article will introduce how to use mbed Compiler to develop code on Freescale FRDM board.



Summary:  we can use mbed Online Compiler edit, build, generate binary file. But CAN’T debug. With mbed FRDM KL25z Upgrade pakage, we can burn binary file to board with drag and drop.

Its really simple, and it's free, because it is a web based compiler, multi-platforms are supported. so lets get started!
