KDS SDK and MQX with PEG tutorials

Hi,

Im starting a new project targeting the K70 twr system with MQX and PEG light using Kinetis Design studio and the latest SDK.

Are there any tutorials on how to proceed?  Please not that the discussion entitled MQX with PEG  tutorials is a dead link and provides no information.

What I know is:-

SDK written in C

MQX written in C

PEG output from windows builder is in C++

How do you get this ecosystem to work together?

Thanks

Hello Dave,

Kinetis Design Studio (KDS) supports K70.

Kinetis Software Development Kit (KSDK) does not support K70 and there are not plans to support it, so there is not support for the K70 in MQX+KSDK.

I suggest you to use eGUI (which is open source), it has support for the K60 and K70 and can be used with or whitout an RTOS:

https://github.com/Gargy007/eGUI

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=EGUI&tid=vanEGUI

http://cache.freescale.com/files/microcontrollers/doc/reports_presentations/EGUIPRE.ppt?fsrch=1

You can check the reference manual (http://gargy007.github.io/egui_doc/) and run the official demo for K70 to get started.

This demo runs on IAR but there is a migration to CodeWarrior with MQX 4.1 (https://community.freescale.com/message/404967#404967)

I hope this helps, have a great day,
Sol

Hi soledad,

I see, I dont want to use eGui as I need the speed of development and performance that PEG+ offers via its windows builder development system. Also PEG is advertised to be fully integrated with MQX Classic

Maybe I dont understand which components of the ecosystem I need.  I believe the K70 + PEG + & MQX classic is the way to go on my project

I thought I would need the SDK however this may be taken care of with the PSP and BSP delivered with MQX (Correct me if Im wrong plz) or do I have to write my own low level drivers, gpio, serial coms, spi etc?

Can I use KDS MQX and PEG for the K70 as shown in one of the NXP videos...motor control demo, however this uses Codewarrior IDE.  If not what do I need to target MQX and PEG to the K70? Just a note I do have IAR EWB so I could use this instead of KDS.

My only interest in using KDS was rapid development via the SDK however you are correct the SDK does not support the K70.  Maybe I could use a MCU that is supported by the SDK to provide a low cost basic touch screen GUI that supports both Ethernet and USB?

Or maybe I dont need the SDK?

Please tell me what bit I need.

Any help would be gratefully received

Thanks
