Updated version 3.0.1 of the NXP FreeMASTER tool has just been published online. 


For more details, please read the recently posted FreeMASTER 3.0 Announcement. Also see downloads, documentation and other resources at


Major changes introduced in the new version:

  • Added support for PEAK-System CAN (PCAN) devices using the PCANBasic API
  • P&E Micro BDM plug-in has been updated to support the latest P&E debugging interface cables.
  • Packet-driven BDM plug-in configuration dialog extends the list of available target devices and valid RAM ranges when searching for a PDBDM command buffer.


Bug-fixes and other minor changes:

  • Fixed oscilloscope data reading using old V1-V3 protocol versions on big-endian systems.
  • Fixed manual recorder stopping when using old protocol versions.
  • The expanded/collapsed state of project tree items is now stored to project file and restored when project is open (PMPX file format only).
  • Reading large block of data (e.g. reading embedded project file using the fmstr:// protocol)  has been made more robust and prone to communication errors.
  • Fixed confusing recorder name "not found" when using old protocol versions.
  • Fixed calculation of total recorded point size in Recorder Properties dialog.
  • Fixed wrong JSON keys in exported FreeMASTER Lite configuration file.



Thank you for using the NXP products and FreeMASTER tool.
