Need help with kwikstik

      I have a Kinetis Kwikstik with a k40x256 MCU and a J-Link debug interface. I have to write an app in order to use the buttons, buzzer and LCD, and after that to make something like a music player,  to use the microphone and the sd card.

      I'm new to it, and I have to use Code Warrior. I tried to use one of the simple programs from KWIKSTIK K40 Getting Started , the LCD one, but I don't know how to configure it in order to program the board.

      I would like to know what steps shoud I make from creating a bareboard project to having it actually running on board.

I tried to follow some of the tutorials from Internet, but some of them are incomplete and there is no result.

      Also I have to become some expert in this by the end of the week, so if somebody is really available and nice to help...please.

      I will respond really quick to any answers, for giving more details.

Install this software: 

Touch-Sensing Software|NXP 

Then, import the example project for kwikstik and use it as base for your project. 

For sd driver, check the kwikstik demo code. 

Good luck!!

Why does not recognize my MCU? It doesn't appear on remote systems.

So, in the videos I watched, the bareboard project was flashed without modifying a thing or there was a project already build and they were just debugging. I don't understand from documentation what initializations are necessary.

Hi

This video shows how to build immediately operational "full projects" for almost any board with CW rather than just how to debug a forever loop......

And you could find KWIKSTIK-K40 resource from here.


Wish it helps.

Hi

The following allows the KWIKSTIk to be used with Code Warrior to do all that you require:
http://www.utasker.com/kinetis/KWIKSTIK.html

Also you can simulate all operations for better understanding, development and debugging. For example see LCD simulation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm2DmZv1rj8

It contains DMA based operation for the microphone and SD card support with utFAT for saving to .WAV files.

Many documents describing the parts at http://www.utasker.com/docs/documentation.html

However beware that there are still a lot of details that need to be understood before all parts that you require can be configured according to your goals and becoming an expert by the end of the week will not be realistic....
