storing value to fixed address

Hello,

I am using a KEA64 type MCU. I am trying to figure out how to save a value to a fixed flash location.

The end goal is to start with calibration values that could change in the future (via UART command). A 512 byte sector is allocated for these calibration values. If the cal is changed, the sector is overwritten with new values. I want to define exactly where each parameter is stored so that I can properly rewrite the calibration values.

Any help or tips for a newcomer to Kinetis MCUs would be greatly appreciated?

Hello Robert,

Which IDE do you used ?

If you use CodeWarrior or KDS,  please refer to :

Relocating Code and Data Using the CW GCC Linker File for Kinetis 

Relocating Code and Data Using the KDS GCC Linker File for Kinetis 

Hope it helps


Have a great day,
TIC

Thanks. I am using CW. That document was very helpful.

Hi

For a ready made solution see the Open Source uTasker project which includes KEA64 for KDS, CW, IAR, Keil, etc.
It has a parameter system as described here: http://www.utasker.com/docs/uTasker/uTaskerFileSystem_3.PDF
which allows fail safe operation of parameter storage.
It doesn't need any linker script file manipulation to work (and so it fuly portable and less messy).

It also has a developer's interface which allows experimenting with internal memory as shown in the video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe9A8qsefzQ&list=PLWKlVb_MqDQFZAulrUywU30v869JBYi9Q&index=12

It emulates Flash in its KEA64 simulator which allows complete testing and warns you of any incorrect configuration or usage.
