Dear All,

 

Just having a play with KDS.

 

For those interested in using USBDM + KDS it appears to be quite straightforward.

 

Since KDS is based on a relatively lightly modified Eclipse (compared to Codewarrior 10) it is possible to just treat it as a basic Eclipse install as far as USBDM is concerned.

 

Just install USBDM as usual but select the Eclipse CDT Plugins  installation:

 

 

Then browse to the eclipse subdirectory within the KDS installation directory:

Complete the installation.

 

After installing you will need to configure USBDM in Kinetis Design Studio (Eclipse):

 

Select the Browse button to locate the ARM tools that USBDM needs.  This can be pointed at the ARM-GCC installation included in KDS.

 

 

 

You can use your usual KDS projects but now can create a USBDM launch configuration.

For more details on this see Launch Configuration Settings this link:

USBDM: Eclipse - New Project Wizard

 

An added bonus is that you also gain a Kinetis peripheral register viewer:

 

bye

 

PS. One further feature - If you install Codesourcery for Coldfire you can also develop and debug code for Coldfire devices in KDS. A bit of an unexpected feature .
