Semihosting printf with MCUXpresso IDE When importing MCUXpresso SDK projects into MCUXpresso IDE, they will be configured by default to use “semihosting” for the terminal output. This means the project will use the debugger connection to send terminal characters instead of the UART. More information on semihosting can be found on this Community document and in Section 11.4 of the MCUXpresso User Guide.   Note that the information in this post is only applicable when using the MCUXpresso IDE, as the projects for other IDEs will use the UART by default when opening up their respective MCUXpresso SDK projects. Also semihosting only works when there is an active debug connection to the device.    printf with semihosting:   printf with UART Terminal (with TeraTerm):   How to choose UART output during the project import In order to use the UART for MCUXpresso IDE projects, some configuration settings need to be modified when importing in the project. First, you will need to uncheck the “Enable semihosting” option to clear the box. This will tell the project to use the normal libraries and not the semihosting libraries.   Then on the next screen, you’ll want to uncheck the “Redirect SDK “PRINTF” to C library “printf”” box to clear it. This will tell the project to use the MCUXpresso SDK source files for printf instead of the generic C files. This allows you to debug, and modify if desired, the printf functionality found inside the MCUXpresso SDK. Section 5.1.2 of the MCUXpresso IDE User Guide describes the options on this screen in more detail.     Switching between semihosting and UART If you’re already imported the project and wish to switch between using semihosting or the UART, you can do this from the “Quick Settings” menu inside the Quickstart panel.    If moving from semi-hosting to UART, this will change the library used to “nohost-nf” and set SDK_DEBUGCONSOLE define to 1 inside the pre-processor settings. If moving from UART to semi-hosting, this will change the library to “semihost-nf” and set SDK_DEBUGCONSOLE define to 0.    If you're not seeing any printf output, double check you have the right settings.    Note that when importing the project initially and “Enable semihosting” is deselected and “Redirect SDK “PRINTF” to C library “printf”” is deselected in order to use the UART for terminal output, there is no SDK_DEBUGCONSOLE defined in the project settings. However inside the debug console SDK code itself, there is a #if statement so that if that value is not defined, then that define is set to 1, and hence why the SDK debug console is still used in that case.

As a heads-up: several uses reported a problems with downloading the MCUXpresso IDE setup/installer program. If pressing the 'Download' button, you might come back to the login screen (to log into your NXP user account): The likely reason for this is that your NXP account needs re-activation. You should see a link to open a SR (Service Request) which you could use. Otherwise post a comment here so your account can be re-activated. I hope this helps, Erich

Upgraded: MCUXpresso IDE integrated with OpenJDK11 (HotSpot engine build 11.0.11+9). Upgraded: GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain to version 10.3-2021.07. Upgraded: Version v11 of MCUXpresso Config Tools. Upgraded: Windows 11 and macOS 12.0.1 (Monterey) support. Upgraded: Newer SEGGER J-Link software (v7.60b, 64-bit version). Upgraded: Newer PEmicro plugin (v5.1.6). Synchronization with SDK v2.11.x and manifest schema version 3.9. Synchronization with FreeRTOS 10.4.3. Added: LPC55S36 support. Added: PN7640 support. Added: IMXRT685-AUD-EVK support. Feature: [FreeRTOS] Added Task Notifications view. Separate FreeRTOS view was added to display task notification list for each task, including status and value properties.      Feature: [SDK Integration] Integration with GitHub SDK repository: Support for installing a remote SDK GitHub repository. Support for installing an already cloned repository. Ability to contribute a project back to SDK GitHub repository.      Feature: [SVD] User can specify a custom SVD file location inside of a project. This can be achieved from Project Properties -> Run/Debug Settings -> MCU Settings -> SVD Selection. The file will be used by Peripherals+ view when debugging that project.      Feature: [Energy Measurement] Extensions and improvements: Data gathering enabled / disabled by trigger signal MCU-Link Pro and on-board probes with energy measurement circuitry can use a GPIO signal as a trigger/enable (input) for the energy measurement. Note. This feature requires firmware version MCU-LINK CMSIS-DAP v2.249 (or greater).                    Increase the maximum analog data collection time limit from 5 minutes previously to unlimited time, depending on the available space on disk. Note. Exported energy measurement session from an older MCUXpresso version is not compatible within MCUXpresso v11.5.0 version. Improve the performance of retrieving measurement data from the probe. This minimizes the chance of experiencing lost data packets which, in earlier versions, sometimes manifested as gaps (of few ms in length) in the data plot when sampling at high data rates. Even in the unlikely circumstances of still missing some measurement data packets, the IDE can now supplement the missing data by reconstructing it from a lower resolution version of the same data (averaged at probe level) to correct the energy/power calculation. When this situation arises the corresponding range on the plot is drawn as a compact area (due to lacking variation between samples normally present in the high resolution measurement data).      Feature: [SWO] Target configuration is now optional within SWO functionality. Depending on debug probe type, the user may choose not to automatically configure the target inside the "SWO Trace Config" view, so the user can then make his own registers configuration within the application. Feature: [SWO] A new console named "SWO and Trace Console" displays all configuration and register settings performed while configuring SWO. Feature: [Debugger][J-Link] Auto-debug secondary project(s) for multicore is now added for J-Link debug session too (now all debug connection types are offering this support). Option is set by default on: Window -> Preferences -> MCUXpresso IDE -> Debug Options -> J-Link Options -> Enable Auto-debug secondary project(s) for multicore projects. Feature: [Flash Programmer][RT1170] Add flash driver for the (non-default) Octal flash device on the EVK board. Feature: [IDE] The IDE does not internally use WMI command line utility anymore (deprecated as of Windows 10, version 21H1). PowerShell will be used instead. Fixed: [Project Manager] "Remove path from __FILE__" option not working for projects with linked sources (not copied into workspace). Fixed: [Project Manager] Project-relative connect and reset scripts do not work. Fixed: [Project Manager][LPC55S69] Changing RAM size from project properties results in build errors. Fixed: [Project Manager] "Restart" or "Terminate and Relaunch" are not enabled for custom made PEmicro launches. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Unable to export data after terminating current analysis and cleaning up debug processes. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Cancelling an import data operation is not working. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Can't start a new measurement session if there is a measurement connection left active in another IDE instance. Fixed: [Debugger] Terminate button throws exception after the debug session using LinkServer. Fixed: [Debugger][CM33] `cmbreakset` doesn't work from redlinkserv console. Fixed: [Debugger][RT1160/RT1170] CPU doesn't halt on faults. Fixed: [Debugger][RT1160/RT1170] CM4 example does not reach main. Fixed: [Debugger][J-Link] Restart not working when debugging an application executing from SRAM (debugger not initializing program counter and stack pointer). Fixed: [Debugger][LinkServer] Debug connection uses excessive host CPU power. Fixed: [Debugger][LinkServer] SWD/JTAG pins are now disabled after terminating a LinkServer debug session. Fixed: [Debugger][LinkServer] Launch configurations referring absolute paths of ELF files are considered invalid. Fixed: [SDK Integration] Unable to select UART with single click when using "Import SDK example(s)" wizard. Fixed: [SDK Integration] [RT1170] Project building fails after adding SSARC driver. Fixed: [SDK Integration] Synchronize Semihost/UART option check with library type (semihost/nohost) selection. Note. This behavior applies to both GUI and CLI. Even if the example description specifies a default IO library type, this will be overwritten by the IDE if the chosen IO model is incompatible with it. Fixed: [SDK Integration] Build fails after removing SDK components that have additional libraries. Fixed: [Azure RTOS ThreadX] Threads view shows odd values for stack usage on all threads. Fixed: [SWO] Profiling counters view displays some wrong values. Fixed: [SWO] Profiling counters are created and accessed even when SWO not configured or available, causing memory access errors. Fixed: [SWO] Statistics (from SWO Trace Config view) indicates wrong information. Fixed: [SWO] IDE freezes for a period when detecting/setting SWO clock. Fixed: [SWO] ITM console does not work. Fixed: [Quick start panel] Copy-paste and multiple selection does not work for project properties. Fixed: [Peripherals+] Most of PWM registers are not shown. Fixed: [Dark Theme] Some of the view names inside SWO Views are not readable. Fixed: [IDE] Sometimes, ConcurrentModificationException exception message is seen when starting MCUXpressoIDE 11.4.1. Improvement: [IDE] Auto-resize columns from Probes Discovered dialog to accommodate length of displayed strings. Improvement: [IDE] Memory configuration editor dialog is now resizable. Fixed: [ImageInfo] Various features indicate files/information from the wrong project in the case of multiple projects having similar names within the workspace. Fixed: [ImageInfo] CallGraph indicates wrong (negative) stack usage value for the "Exception Handlers" virtual node. This field should be empty for virtual (non-existent) nodes. Fixed: [Global Variables] Sometimes the decimal number format displays empty values in the view. Fixed: [Installer][macOS] Re-installing the same MCUXIDE build version results in errors when launching the product. Fixed: [Installer] Uninstall sometimes fails when processes associated with current installation are open.   Known issues Please follow the KnownIssues.txt file from installation layout for a detailed list. Note. Additional issues that will be found post-release will be added in an online version also aiming to describe workarounds when available.

Important Note. Previously announced MCUXpresso IDE v11.4.0 build 6224 has been replaced by build 6237 to address a potential problem related to the Eclipse updater mechanism which under some circumstances could inadvertently update the Java Runtime Environment to a newer version (jre-15) which is incompatible with the IDE. When this problem arises the MCUXpresso IDE will no longer start. In the case you have previously installed MCUXpresso IDE build 6224, it is highly recommended to uninstall it and install build 6237 instead.   We are pleased to announce that MCUXpresso IDE v11.4.0 (build 6237) is now available. This is a major new version of the IDE and contains new features, enhancements and bug fixes over the previous versions, including latest announced MCUXpresso IDE v11.3.1.   Installer Downloads To download the installers for all platforms, please login to our download site via:  https://www.nxp.com/mcuxpresso/ide/download   Documentation Additional information can be found in the updated User Guide and other documentation, which can be accessed from the built in help system available via IDE's Help menu and in PDF form from within the installation directory or downloaded from: https://www.nxp.com/mcuxpresso/ide/documentation    Notification of future releases To receive notifications about future releases, please follow: MCUXpresso IDE - Release History    Summary of Changes - version 11.4.0 - July 2021 Upgraded: Eclipse version to 2020.12 (Eclipse Platform 4.18.0 /  CDT 10.1.0). Upgraded: IDE now integrates with OpenJDK11 (HotSpot engine,  v11.0.10). Upgraded: GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain to 10-2020-q4-major. Note that on top of GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain 10-2020-q4-major,  gcclib was recompiled using the bug fix from https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=99157 . This patch prevents the run-time application corruption when using -mcmse support (applied for armv8m only). Upgraded: Version v10 of MCUXpresso Config Tools. Upgraded: Newer SEGGER J-Link software (v7.50, 32-bit version on Windows, 64-bit version on Linux/macOS). Note that v7.50 comes with a 64-bit version of Windows. This 64-bit version is compatible and can be used if desired, but please note that the MCUXpresso IDE 11.4.0 installation does not include this and only partial testing has been possible due to timing of the release. If you prefer to use the 64-bit version on Windows: Install 64-bit Windows SEGGER J-Link software Go to IDE -> Preferences -> MCUXpresso IDE -> Debug Options ->  J-Link Options -> J-Link Server executable and change it from the existing path to the 64-bit version installation path, i.e. for the default installation path:  C:\Program Files\SEGGER\JLink\JLinkGDBServerCL.exe Upgraded: Newer PEmicro plugin (v5.0.4). Upgraded: FreeRTOS TAD synchronization with FreeRTOS v10.4.3. Added: MKE1xZ support. Feature: [Azure RTOS ThreadX] Added GDB thread awareness.

Decoding of exported data is done using Microsoft's Azure RTOS TraceX host-based analysis tool. Detailed procedure is described in the Azure RTOS User Guide. Feature: [Energy Measurement] Added measurement/plot capability for MCU-Link Pro and on-board probes. Power measurement can be done using: The new MCU-Link double channel measurement capability (simultaneously measured current and voltage); Existing capability (used over LPC-Link2 probes) of caching voltage measurement to use on power computation over current measurement. Feature: [Offline Peripherals] Added offline peripheral view. With this view, the peripheral registers can be inspected outside of a debug session. A device selector or the current project selection can be used to load register information for a particular device. Additionally, an SVD file can be imported. Feature: [Debugger][MCU-Link] Differentiation of MCU-Link product names used when MCU-Link probes enumerate on USB: Example: base model: MCU-LINK (r0FF) CMSIS-DAP V2.219 Pro model : MCU-LINK Pro (r0C7) CMSIS-DAP V2.219 on-board  : MCU-LINK on-board (r0CF) CMSIS-DAP V2.219 Feature: [Debugger][J-Link] Added possibility to connect to a remote gdb server. In launch configuration -> J-Link Debugger tab -> GDB Server Settings, use Server execution option to set a remote server.

Improvement: [Peripherals+] Peripherals+ view design was changed to support register group expansion directly into the Peripherals+ view, with no extra Memory View usage. Consequently, all elements shown before in Memory View are now available directly in the Peripherals+ view: values, bitfields, details. Reset value can be inspected as well together with the rest of the register elements. Improvement: [IDE] Added a link to MCU-Link firmware page in 'Additional resources' menu entry under Help's main menu. Improvement: [IDE] Toolbar naming and grouping: some icons re-grouped to reflect better categories and functionalities. Improvement: [SWO] Adapt SWO trace config error to better reflect possible causes. Improvement: [Flash Programmer] Use probe serial number instead of probe index when generating command line.

Fixed: [Flash Programmer] Cannot program flash from Quickstart Panel if "preview command" is checked in launch config. Fixed: [Flash Programmer] Wrong usage of double quotes in GUI Flash Tool Command Line. Fixed: [Debugger] Cannot relaunch (using "Terminate and Relaunch") a running session. Fixed: [Debugger] Suspend "bubble" project crashes debugger connection on LinkServer when using Non-Stop mode. Fixed: [Debugger] Debugger sets two breakpoints at the same address when debugging with J-Link. This generates a warning when trying to restart the debug session. Fixed: [Debugger] Always meet "Not Responding" issue when clicking the debug button without build first (for larger projects). Fixed: [Debugger] J-Link debug button does nothing when load image is set. Fixed: [Debugger] hello_world doesn't read the input from the console. Fixed: [Debugger] "Interrupt failed" pop-up error window during debug with FRDM-K64F and LPC-Link2 for some projects. Fixed: [Debugger] First attempt to manually modify the PC register is ignored. Fixed: [Debugger] Exceptions occurring while closing a project with an active debug session. Fixed: [Debugger] Restart not working in attach mode. Fixed: [Debugger][88MW320] Attach to a running target with PEmicro on FreeRTOS projects starts with faults. Fixed: [Debugger][88MW320] Cannot debug twice with J-Link and PEmicro. Fixed: [Debugger][FreeRTOS] Heap and Stack Usage View shall work with FreeRTOS enabled projects. Fixed: [Debugger] Multiple J-Link instances (named as "3rd party CMSIS-DAP") appear in Probes Discovered view: now these are filtered out. If a user still wants to see them, check the option from Preferences -> Debug Options -> J-Link Options -> Enable discovering of "3rd party CMSIS-DAP" probes. Fixed: [Debugger][J-Link] Master core in multicore context will be attached (instead a regular debug session) to target after debugging. Fixed: [Debugger][iMX RT595] Unable to flash application using crt_emu_cm_redlink raw command: Added preconnectscript argument to stub; Added --preconnectscript in the IDE's flash tool preview command window bottom; Note: Preconnect scripts have been changed to use variable a% instead of p% to receive the probe index. The user might need to update custom preconnect scripts. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Format Y axis using a scale suitable for all displayed values (when having large Oy scale to represent data). Fixed: [Energy measurement] Unable to exit probe discovery for boards with unsupported firmware for SWO. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] The Energy measurement cannot collect if associated with a debug session and SWO is not initialized. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Making a selection on the plot may lose part of the status line. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Negative zero (-0.00) values shown. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Lot of remaining allocated heap after clearing a plot. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Incorrect representation of individual samples when the probe has been booted for some time: there are multiple values represented at the same point in time. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Table containing analog sources not empty after terminating analysis session. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] When a view is already connected to a board and the underlying board is changed (without using the Terminate button), a subsequent operation will cause an error dialog with two entries and no useful information. View becomes unusable after this point. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Export contains much more data than intended. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Power/energy info in status line does not follow the currently visible part of the measurement. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] IDE now reports an error in the case the connection was interrupted while collecting power measurement data. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Wrong resistor values displayed for QN9090 measurement circuit. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Fixed 'None' in Tooltip for Cursor options in the Energy measurement toolbar. Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Export contains much more data than intended (from previous measurements). Fixed: [Energy Measurement] Old recorded values displayed on the graph.

We are pleased to announce that MCUXpresso IDE v11.3.0 (build 5222) is now available. This is a major new version of the IDE and contains new features, enhancements and bug fixes over the previous versions, including latest announced MCUXpresso IDE v11.2.1.   Installer Downloads To download the installers for all platforms, please login to our download site via:  https://www.nxp.com/mcuxpresso/ide/download   Documentation Additional information can be found in the updated User Guide and other documentation, which can be accessed from the built in help system available via IDE's Help menu and in PDF form from within the installation directory or downloaded from: https://www.nxp.com/mcuxpresso/ide/documentation    Notification of future releases To receive notifications about future releases, please follow : MCUXpresso IDE - Release History    Summary of Changes - version 11.3.0 - January 2021 Upgraded: Eclipse version to 2020.06 (Eclipse Platform 4.16.0 /  CDT9.11.1). Upgraded: IDE now integrates with OpenJDK8. Upgraded: GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain to GCC9-2020-q2-update. Integrated: GNU test coverage (gcov) and performance analysis (gprof) tools and Eclipse plugins. Upgraded: Version v9 of MCUXpresso Config Tools. Upgraded: Newer SEGGER J-Link software (v6.88c). Upgraded: Newer PEmicro plugin (v4.8.5). Added: i.MX RT1170 B0 support. Added: i.MX RT1024 support. Added: RT500 B2 support. Added: K32W061 support. Added: K32W041AM support. Added: LPC55S06 support. Added: MCU-Link probe debug support. Feature: Added Energy Measurement view, aiming to replace the Power Measurement view. Main capabilities: The new view comes with the same feature-set as the old Power Measurement view; From a GUI perspective, it offers consistent look & feel with other views that display and controls graphs (e.g. Global Variables, SWO-related views); Compatible with existing LPCXpresso boards having on-board power measurement circuits; Power and energy estimation capability: in order to enable power/energy measurement/estimation the user should add a reference voltage in the Config tab section from Energy Measurement view. For convenience and more precise measurement, the user can press "Read from target" which will automatically generate a reference voltage computed as an average value (of the voltage) measured for the last 500msec. Energy and power will be displayed in the status line of the plot area, showing the min/max/average power values and the energy value for the measurements visible in the graph, or over a particular time range selection. Multiprobe and multiview support: the feature is capable to open multiple views, each view can be connected to a different probe (that is capable to measure analog). The probe can be selected from Probe Discovery feature available in the Energy Measurement view toolbar. Data collecting during an out-of-debug session and also during an active debug session; Data collecting with an active debug session while the core is in debug mode. Behavior is controlled via toolbar buttons; Configuration of the server-side (rltool) and of the IDE using the Config tab within the view; Import/Export data functionality for offline analysis: (buttons on the Energy view toolbar). The user is able to save (Export data, in a zip format) the data collected within the view, having the possibility to load the saved data (Import data) later, in the same view or another one. Loading saved data in the Energy Measurement is not requiring physical connection to the target; Extended LPC-Link2 support for all targets having onboard measurement circuit: LPCXpresso546x8/540xx/54S0xx, LPCXpresso54102, LPCXpresso51U68/54114, QN90x0/JN518x/K32W0x1. As a side note, if there is any other LPC-Link2 board having power measurement capability, the user can use an existing configuration (and change the resistor value if necessary); See MCUXpresso_IDE_Energy_Measurement.pdf (or Help -> Help Contents) for details. Feature: Auto-debug slave project(s) for multicore projects option becomes default option for multicore debug purpose (for LinkServer debug connection only). That means, in the case of multicore projects on which primary project refers one or several secondary projects, debug sessions will be automatically started for secondary projects after initiating debug with the primary project. Option is set by default on: Window -> references -> MCUXpresso IDE -> Debug Options -> LinkServer Options -> Miscellaneous -> Enable Auto-debug slave project(s) for multicore projects. If you don't want to have this feature enabled (so if you want to start debug sessions for each core independently), uncheck this option. Similar, Auto-debug slave project(s) for multicore projects option becomes default option for multicore debug purpose for PEmicro too. Option is set by default on: Window -> Preferences -> MCUXpresso IDE -> Debug Options -> PEMicro Options -> Enable Auto-debug slave project(s) for multicore projects. Improvement: Enhance SWO views: SWO Config: added new Tab for data traffic statistics, configuration for ITM Stimulus ports; SWO Profile: added samples and details tabs; SWO Data: added plot (similar to Global Variables); SWO Stats: moved inside SWO Config; ITM Console: added one tab for each stimulus port.

Improvement: Drop-down boxes from several tables require two user operations for reaching the actual items from the list. Reduced now to a single operation (single click). Improvement: Extend CLI functionality - Add new command to list SDK info:   -filter=<string> : filters the available information based on regex expression string. e.g. -filter=K64 will display all data containing K64 string. See SDK command line documentation within the layout (MCUXpresso_SDK_Command_Line_User_Guide.pdf). Improvement: Merge c_include path section into cpp_include path section for cpp project in project settings. Improvement: New project wizard is now capable to handle HW with dual primary/secondary roles (i.e. RT1170). From SDK Wizard page, any core can be selected according with the secondary/primary SDK description, plus it can be selected as standalone (application). Improvement: Community forum accessible now from the main toolbar too (together with the older link from Help->MCUXpresso IDE support forum). The default selection will open the community web inside the IDE. If you want to set the default browser as external browser, use Window->Preferences->General->Web browser->"Use external web browser". Fixed: [RT500] QSPI flash drivers: driver was incorrectly using QSPI DDR instead of SDR. Fixed: [RT500][RT600] J-Link launch config default resets: Re-enable resets in J-Link launches for RT500/RT600 The most recent J-Link versions properly handle resets for RT500 & RT600 devices.

For the previous KDS or CodeWarrior users, they may not create and use static library under MCUXpresso IDE without a hitch, because the methods are not exactly same. MCUXpresso IDE supports adding static library in user project with “Smart Update” wizard. This feature is derived from LPCXpresso IDE.  However, “Smart Update” wizard is only available for natively supported LPC products in MCUXpresso 10.1.0 and lower versions.  It will support all LPC and Kinetis product in MCUXpresso IDE future release. For MCUXpresso natively supported LPC product, using “Smart Update” to add library is very convenient. User can learn its usage from this article: Creating and Linking to Library Projectshttps://community.nxp.com/message/630594 For Kinetis product, the only way to add library to project is by hand. This article will take an example with MK64F demo, illustrating how to create and use static library under MCUXpresso IDE step by step.  It will also be good for all LPC and Kinetis users to understand how user project works with external static libraries under MCUXpresso.  If user needs demo code of this article, please send me community internal message. Thanks for the suggestion from  LPCX support
