How to flash KL27 using bin file through PE Micro Multlink universal fx

Hello,

I wonder how could I flash KL27 processor in a custom board that I developed.

I have the code in .bin format and the PE micro multlink universal fx.

Is there a way to program the board using MCUxpresso IDE?

Thanks,

Regards,

João Paulo

For production programming, use a dedicated device for this, e.g. the Cyclone: http://www.pemicro.com/cyclone/

I hope this helps,

Erich

Hi João,

One more thought on this topic...

If you only have a .bin format available then you can convert this to an srecord or intel hex file format and program this through the GUI Flash Programmer via P&E debug probe within MCUXpresso IDE. Simply invoke the GUI flash programmer and browse to the file via the File System (All Files) option etc.

Also note, programming an .axf file onto a board only programs the binary content of the file i.e. the contents of the flash will be identical either way

Hello,

I have all the Project files because I developed it.

The point here is that I need to send it for production but I can't send the source code, the hole Project..

I would like to send them only the .bin or srecord, because I think it's more secure.

The company that will do the production has the PE micro multlink universal fx, that's why I did the question.

What's the best way to do production process?

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards!

You could use the -s option to generate a binary without the symbols:

Hi All

I am wondering whether there has been an update in the meantime?

According to the MCUXpressor IDE user guide there is an option to load binary files (although maybe not for all debuggers) but when I use a P&E debugger/programmer there are no options other than *.axf.

Trying *.s19 it doesn't look to do anything (as it doesn't when selecting a binary file).

I am having to use an old KDS version for SREC programming and an even older Codewarrior version to do binary programming, but it certainly would be easier to just be able to use the newest tool to do such things. Is this still missing or is it somehow possible?

Thanks

Regards

Mark

Hi João Paulo,

Our current integration of the PE Micro debug solution only support the flash programming of .axf files.

However, LinkServer (CMSIS-DAP) and SEGGER JLink debug solutions do offer support for binary file programming. We hope to bring in this feature in a later release.

Yours,

Hello, 

I don't want to debug anymore, the project is ready for production.

I would like to flash the code on the boards without debbuging feature.

Do you have any recommendation.

Thanks,

Regards,

João Paulo
