I am wondering about the new KDS IDE V1.0.1.
This new version of KDS supports KW2 Kinetis family and BeeStack.
If isn't, presumably it will available in the future versions?
The W family is not yet supported in KDS, and subject of planning and further releases. I do not expect it to be supported in KDS in the near future.
As Marc is saying, it is a Cortex M4 part, so generially it is supported. But KDS does not come with dedicated Processor Expert or Kinetis SDK support for it it.
Processor Expert projects:
- All Kinetis ARM Cortex-M0+ and Cortex-M4(F) devices supported by Processor Expert.
Kinetis SDK projects:
- K64F (MK64FN1M0VMD12 only)
Bare Projects (no SDK and no Processor Expert projects)
- K64F, KL25Z
PS: The KW2 family is part of Cortex-M4(F) devices supported by Processor Expert...??
It is possible to develop and build projects for any Kinetis processor using KDS (it acts as an editor and make file manager for the GCC tool chain).
The question is whether you can debug comfortably with it on the processor in questio because it may be missing soem debugger suipport and register views, although I believe that these can usually be added as plug-ins.
I think that theoretically is possible to build project for all Kinetis but in practice is hard.
Infact , i launched the KDS to create a new Kinetis project,
and opened the File menu, then select New > Project > Kinetis Design
Studio Project to start the New Kinetis Design Studio Project wizard.
The wizard shows as list of Kinetis only this :
- Kinetis E
- Kinetis K
- Kinetis L
- Kinetis V
Do you know some workaround for Kinetis W?
I use the K, E and L parts and haven't yet used the W parts.
In the case of L and E there is no real difference for a project setup (both contain the Cortex M0+ core and have the same code/data memory layout). The K and KW parts both contain Cortex M4 and have the same code/data memory layout so I would use a K setup to start with.
If you are however reliant on the environment setting up a framework with the correct header files etc. you may have to do this from hand in case there is really no help built in. It is also worth doing once so that you know where everything is and then are not so reliant of a certain tool.
It's been almost a year since the last update on this. Has anything changed?
I'm now trying to port some old code from a MC13213 to a KW2x tower kit, but I can't find a way to program the tower kit via CodeWarrior or KDS.
I've also downloaded the BeeKit and exported a Solution to CodeWarrior. That gave me some odd results. It looked like it downloaded and I was debugging, but no code was visible on the screen. More like the Stack Pointer was off at some random address.
I don't need Processor Expert or any fancy support items as I plan to build all the code from the ground up. I just need a way to download code to the tower kit via a debugging tool that will let me step through and debug code. Can anyone help with this?
