NXP's MCUXpresso Software and Tools has expanded to include a new Secure Provisioning Tool, support for integrated third software solutions and has major improvements in the user experience for software selection. This newly updated suite further augments the easy-to-use SDK, IDE and Configuration Tools for streamlined development with Arm® Cortex®-M cores, including NXP’s LPC and Kinetis MCUs and the  i.MX RT Crossover Processors. A (comprehensive) list of supported devices can be found in the MCUXpresso community here:

MCUXpresso software and tools bring together the best of NXP’s software enablement (core technologies) and integrated solutions from select partners (enabling technologies) into one enablement ecosystem for a shared software experience across a broad set of Arm® Cortex®-M MCUs.


The MCUXpresso software and tools core technologies include the MCUXpresso SDK, MCUXpresso IDE , MCUXpresso Config Tools and the MCUXpresso Secure Provisioning Tool.

Integrated middleware in the MCUXpresso SDK brings full application examples to life for connectivity, cloud, storage, security, ML/AI, graphics and HMI, and motor control applications. New Enabling Software Technology examples from strategic graphics and connectivity partners make it easy to transition to licensed products without needing development environment changes. A new front-end to MCUXpresso IDE now enables selection of SDK packages directly from within the tool, and SDK Builder has been updated to make middleware selection easier than ever before.

NXP continues to work with leading development tool technology partners, including Arm Keil and IAR Systems, P&E Micro, and SEGGER to ensure options for leading partner IDE and debug tool support options are available. NXP’s industry leading FreeMASTER advanced data visualization tool is also now available across most of our General Purpose MCUs, enabling runtime configuration and tuning of embedded software applications. Collectively, these enabling tool technologies make it easy for customers to work efficiently from evaluation, through application development, into design.
