Just having a play with KDS.
For those interested in using USBDM + KDS it appears to be quite straightforward.
Since KDS is based on a relatively lightly modified Eclipse (compared to Codewarrior 10) it is possible to just treat it as a basic Eclipse install as far as USBDM is concerned.
Just install USBDM as usual but select the Eclipse CDT Plugins installation:
Then browse to the eclipse subdirectory within the KDS installation directory:
Complete the installation.
After installing you will need to configure USBDM in Kinetis Design Studio (Eclipse):
Select the Browse button to locate the ARM tools that USBDM needs. This can be pointed at the ARM-GCC installation included in KDS.
You can use your usual KDS projects but now can create a USBDM launch configuration.
For more details on this see Launch Configuration Settings this link:
An added bonus is that you also gain a Kinetis peripheral register viewer:
PS. One further feature - If you install Codesourcery for Coldfire you can also develop and debug code for Coldfire devices in KDS. A bit of an unexpected feature .
pgo, thanks for the instructions. I've installed the latest release of USBDM as shown above, including the CDT plugins for KDS, but when I launch KDS there isn't any "USBDM" menu entry. Are there additional installation steps required ?
Why is it that I can check something several times and still not see an error!
When installing USBDM please select the eclipse directory in the KDS installation - not the KDS root as shown in the screen grab above.
Sorry for the misinformation.
To fix without re-installing copy the contents of the dropins directory that was created in the KDS root directory into the eclipse\dropins directory.
Alternatively uninstall and re-install with a selection of the KDS/eclipse directory.
I will update the above screen grab shortly.
Sorry for the stuffing around.
The next version of USBDM will auto-select the KDS directory. I'll put this up in a few days - it will fix some minor annoyances.
Brilliant ! As you suggested, I moved the "USBDM" subdirectory from the KDS_1.0.1\dropins directory into KDS_1.0.1\eclipse\dropins instead, and now it works fine.
Thanks - and don't feel bad - without you, we would be nowhere :smileyhappy:
