How to get MK51DX128CLH7 into MCUXpresso?

Hi,

I'm trying to find out how to work with the MK51DX128CLH7 in Xpresso. I found the MK51DX256CLK10 in a SDK but not the 128.

Do I have to use the generic M4?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bert

Just an idea: KDS (Kinetis Design Studio) with Processor Expert supports that device:

What I did for similar cases:

a) using the possibility to install Processor Expert in to MCUXpresso IDE (did that for earlier versions, have not checked if this is still possible with 11.5). see https://mcuoneclipse.com/2017/04/09/mcuxpresso-ide-installing-processor-expert-into-eclipse-neon/ how this would look like. Otherwise: I used KDS to generate everything and then used MCUXpresso (see b))

b) import/port the KDS project with Processor Expert. https://mcuoneclipse.com/2018/07/27/porting-processor-expert-projects-to-mcuxpresso-ide/

I know this is a bit challenging, but worked for me for several projects with devices which are not supported by the NXP MCUXpresso SDK.

I hope this helps,

Erich

If they share the same peripherals, but are only different by the flash size, you should be able to use the smaller part, but change the linker file for the larger memory size.

Hi, thanks for your quick answer. Unfortunately the devices differ in pinout (case) and peripherals.

Thank you Erich,

that will probably be my way. I did not look into the older IDE because the website did redirect me to the newer one...

Thanks very much!
