Hello, my company has been using Codewarrior for a few years now and have been very pleased with it and Processor Expert and have a number of projects that use it.
With a new project we would like to use the MKL17Z256VMP4 processor and as I understand it, this is only supported in KDS.
I already have a project and a lot of code written for a different processor (as our prototype board used an old one: MKL25Z128VLK4). Unfortunately when importing it into KDS I couldn't find the MKL17Z processor to add to the project. After reading a couple of posts on this forum I installed the following updates to KDS:
- Freescale Kinetis SDK v1.0.0 for KL03Z
- Freescale Kinetis SDK v1.0.0 for KL43Z
- Freescale Kinetis SDK v1.1.0
This added the KL17 processor to the list but now Processor Expert does not work correctly. The imported CW project says "ERROR: This component is not supported in Kinetis SDK project mode". I can't seem to find a way to take the project out of this mode.
Also, when starting a new project in KDS, if I select MKL25Z I can select Processor Expert (but not Kinetis SDK) and the normal Processor Expert beans are there (Logical Device Drivers), however if I select he MKL17Z I *have* to select Kinetis SDK with Processor Expert (and cannot select Processor Expert individually) but the normal LDD beans are not there.
This means I am unable to use the old project in "legacy" mode and can't even start a new project using the "old" Processor Expert with the MKL17Z processor.
What am I doing wrong? Surely there is a Processor Expert update for KDS so that it works properly for the MKL17Z? The Kinetis SDK looks completely different (and frankly, not as fully-featured) as the old CW processor expert and I'd rather not have to completely re-write the work I've already done!
