This tutorial shows a basic steps to create a CodeWarrior project with Processor Expert configured for the FRDM-KL25 board.

The steps apply to CodeWarrior version 10.3 or newer.


1. In the CodeWarrior , go for [File | New | Bareboard Project].


2. Type a project name such as e.g. KL25Z-PE” then click [Next]


3. In Devices page, please go to the line [Device or board to be used], type in part of the name our target device:  "kl25z" and select the final target device MKL25Z128 from the filtered list.

Then click [Next].


4. In the Connections window select only the [OpenSource SDA] connection type and click [Next].
Note: This is the on-board USB debug connection on FRDM-KL25.


5. In the Rapid Application Development select [Processor Expert] and click [Finish].


6. The CodeWarrior Projects view contains a newly created project. Double-click the Processor file to ensure to see  the Processor Expert components from the project in the Component view.


7. In the Component view open the view menu (small down-heading arrow) and select Apply Board Configuration command


8. Click Browse… button and select FREEDOM-KL25Z / cpu / CPU_default.peb


9. Click Finish to confirm replacement of the default CPU component by the pre-configured one for the FRDM-KL25 board.



Now the project is configured to run from on-board crystal at 48MHz.

You can continue with adding components from the Components library view and configuring them in the Inspector
