Hey, everybody, it is a good news. Freescale has already started to develop complete Driver library and middleware for ARM Cortex M0+/M4 Kinetis Families MCU. It is called Kinetis Platform SDK (Software Development Kit), which is similar with STM32 Peripheral Driver Lib and NXP LPCOpen. SDK’s goal is to support all Kinetis chip by providing complete IP register access abstract layer (HAL) and complete device driver based on the HAL. User can use the set of driver library conveniently to implement own applications, without reading complicated chip’s reference manual. At the same time, the unified driver interface also ensures application’s porting between different Kinetis chip easily. In addition, the SDK will provide RTOS support (including MQX, FreeRTOS, and uCOS), USB and TCP/IP protocol stack, detailed application demo as well as various convenient development tools. Now Kinetis SDK is under developing, several versions will be released this year. Coming soon~

Now let’s review the API and it’s usage of Kinetis SDK I2C, UART, and PIT peripheral drivers. Wish your valuable opinions, and support Freescale to provide better software solutions for our customers. Any of your ‘Like’, comments and criticism is very precious to us.

I have attached the PDF version of this preview, please open and look.
