Hi Erich,

Is the mac version already available?

In the KDS Download webpage there is no link for mac.

Thanks,

Hi Ali,

I appologize for that, I have realized that too. Working with the web team to get that fixed. Will post a comment here when it is fixed.

Erich

Hi Ali,

the web download has been fixed, and the Mac OS X installer is available now.

Erich

Thanks Erich!

Hi Erich,

The new KDS seems great so far! In the release notes for accessing the Register View, I think they meant to say:

"Window > Show View > Other > Debug" instead of Help > Show Views ...

-Angus

Hi Erich

kinetis M not support for kinetis dising 3.0

andres

Hi Andres,

yes, Kinetis M is not supported in KDS, because it is not supported in the Kinetis SDK (yet).

Erich

Hi Angus,

thanks for reporting this. This already has been fixed in the Rev1 version of the release notes (attached to this page). The installation comes with Rev0 which indeed has that error in it.

Erich

Hi Erich

1. Thanks for the MacOSX version!

2. What about support for Vybrid processors? For the standalone Driver Suite a Vybrid plugin exists, any plans to integrate into the latest KDS/SDK?

hi Erich

then that can be programmed Kinetis M,using process experts

thanks

Hi Robert,

there are currently no plans to have Vybrid added to Kinetis Design Studio.

Erich

Hi Erich, the Linux version .bin file cannot be installed.

./Kinetis\ Design\ Studio\ installer\ for\ Linux\ 64-bit\ DEB\ 3.0.0.bin

./Kinetis Design Studio installer for Linux 64-bit DEB 3.0.0.bin: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'

./Kinetis Design Studio installer for Linux 64-bit DEB 3.0.0.bin: line 1: `!<arch>'

mv ./Kinetis\ Design\ Studio\ installer\ for\ Linux\ 64-bit\ DEB\ 3.0.0.bin ./Kinetis\ Design\ Studio\ installer\ for\ Linux\ 64-bit\ DEB\ 3.0.0.deb

sudo dpkg -i ./Kinetis\ Design\ Studio\ installer\ for\ Linux\ 64-bit\ DEB\ 3.0.0.deb

Thanks. I wish Freescale had used .deb instead of .bin for Debian file.

Hi, If want to develop a commercial product can I do it with kinetis studio? Do I have to pay if I want to use it for the purpose?

Regards

Kinetis Design Studio can be used for commercial purposes, it has not limits except that it can be used for Freescale devices only.

Hi Erich,

My mac version is 10.11.1.

When I open KDS and select a workspace I can't click any buttons. It was stuck.

Hello,

are using El Capitan? If so, then it could be this problem (with solution):

KDS on OS X El Capitan (Beta)

I hope this helps,

Erich

It works. Thanks!

Hi Erich,

Using "Init_GPIO" it is possible to set pull-up or pull-down resistor in KDS V3.0.0?

I found examples using CodeWarrior!

Regards,

Arnaldo

Hi Arnaldo,

yes, this is possible with Processor Expert projects.

Erich
