Hello Edward

I don't exactly understand the question but I have developed for the KL82 with the following IDEs:


    NXP's MCUXpresso
    NXP's Kinetis Design Studio (KDS)
    Freescale's CodeWarrior 10.x
    S32 Design Studio for ARM
    Rowley Associate's Crossworks
    CooCox CoIDE
    IAR Embedded Workbench
    Keil µVision
    Green Hills
    Atollic TrueSTUDIO for ARM
    Standalone GCC from Makefile
    VisualStudio for Kinetis simulation

See http://www.utasker.com/kinetis.html

so there are quite a few to choose from, and one that may suit your requirement.

Regards

Mark

Hello, good day

Thank you so much for answering too fast. To explain it better, what I

want is to develop applications

into a MKL82Z128VLK7 microcontroller, but I will use the microcontroller

only, I won't be able to

use a complete development board with all their extra components because

of the small space available.

We might use an extra small case so I want to know if there is a

possibility to program only the microcontroller

with the same IDE, in this case I'm using "Kinetis Design Studio" with

FRDM-KL82Z. Imagine that I just have

chip MKL82Z128VLK7 without the board, I'd like to program on this device

but what I don't know is: if I

could use the same IDE or maybe I need another IDE to develop only for

this microcontroller.

Please, I'd like you to tell me which tools I need to develop for this

chip without any kind of board

development, in the future I will use the chip to connect a very

specific components that's why I want

to know options to consider.

Best regards

Eduardo

None of the IDEs are restricted to a board. None of the IDEs are restricted to a component either (if it support compiling for Cotex-M0+, Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M4F it can build for any Kinetis part). The only possible restrictions is with the debugger type that the IDE supports - but with KDS or MCUXpressor and a P&E or Segger debugger you have no problems. In the worst case it may not be able to display peripheral registers when debugging unknown types.

Some of the tools may contain some automatic generation tools that others don't (or only support limited devices) but if you have some experience with programming these are more or less superfluous anyway since any decent library gives you the same (or much more).

Hi Eduardo,

Yes, indeed there are many IDE tools support MKL82Z128VLK7.

But NXP's recommendation is MCUXpresso. To work with MKL82Z128VLK7, MCUXpresso needs combine with SDK2.x for MKL82Z128VLK7, SDK can be download here:

Welcome to MCUXpresso | MCUXpresso Config Tools 

You don't want to associate with board, so you download SDK package for device rather than for board.

see attached video.

when you create a new project with MCUXpresso, make sure you select baremetal and Empty board file. then the board file will not be generated.

Have a great day,
Jennie Zhang
