KW2x board layout in EAGLE

Contributor I

I'm designing my first PCB board with a KW2x MCU and I'm having trouble opening up the TWR-KW24D512 and USB-KW24D512 reference designs. I'm using EAGLE for board layout and it gives me "Error: line 1, column 1: Start tag expected" when I try to open up the .brd files. Is there a different program I should be using?

I was able to open up the "ULC-Zigbee" layout Joshevelle​ made with EAGLE, but the manuals say to use the TWR and USB  as reference designs so I wasn't sure how safe it is to use the ULC file as a reference for the F-antenna design.

Lastly, are the schematic files available for the TWR and USB layouts too (not in PDF format)?

Greatly appreciate any help, thanks!

Hello Oliver,

The TWR-KW24D512 and USB-KW24D512 reference designs are available for download in their respective microsites. In the downloads tab look for the reference design. The only constraint is that these are only available for Cadence OrCAD and not for EAGLE. However, these files are what you need to build your own F-Antenna in EAGLE.

Best regards,
