    MQX itself is free. but it need CW professional license support. this is CW suite price list:

  • Cost details of TCP/IP & USB stack for the above RTOS 

TCP/IP & USB stack are included in MQX RTOS. needn;t extra cost

  • Memory requirement for the RTOS

I checked MQX for K60.  It shows MQX USB stack is using 11.5K bytes code size and 2K bytes SRAM size.

Memory size is hard to determine without some testing of your exact needs and build settings. You'll tend to see larger sizes with the demos since the isn't any optimization of buffers etc. For example a webserver with Ethernet could be 96k +

Mqx license is paid for by Freescale, they provide it complimentary for most Freescale processors. This includes Ethernet stack, USB stack (host, device, hub), file system, shell, documentation and examples. There are some add on pieces that are extra cost if you need them- Like ssl and ash.

You really do want task aware debugging though. This comes with codewarrior pro and IAR tools.

Dear Martin,

Thanks for the link, but nothing is clear about the licencing agreement, IT points to Embedded Access Inc.

Embedded Access Inc tells these stacks are free of cost but there is no clarity where I can download/DVD for Embedded Access Inc.

Please let me know do I get all TCP/IP stack with the latest MQX RTOS installation or I need to add separately

Regards

Mithun.

Hello,

no ordering is required, just download MQX installation and check it by yourself. USB and RTCS are included there with source code.
