Can't get multilink universal working in KDS

Question asked by Emily Hartnett on Apr 29, 2016



I'm trying to get a multilink universal to work with a FRDM-KL25Z board. My end goal is to eventually get it to work with a custom board I have made, but I can't get it working even with the FRDM board which I know is working. This my setup and what I have tried so far:


* I'm using KDS 3.2.0 on Windows 7 64-bit (I've also tried on KDS 3.0 and ran into the same issues). I started a new workspace for the KDS 3.2 install and made a new project in there that I'm working with.

* I downloaded the multilink universal firmware update utility from the downloads tab here:

* I've run the firmware update utility included in the above download and made sure the firmware was updated to support kinetis.

* I can program the FRDM board using the onboard OpenSDA option, and I can also programming one FRDM board with a second one as seen on this page:

So I'm confident the the FRDM board and my code is working, and I'm also confident the the cable is working and I'm connecting it correctly.

* I used this set up to connect the FRDM board to the Multilink:

Here is a photo of my setup to confirm:


* This is my debug configuration. This is the same as I use to program with OpenSDA only with the Interface and Port options changed to the multilink.


* I've checked for the debug zombies arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe, and pegdbserver_console.exe and don't see either of them running.

* When debug fails first I get this P&E connection assistant pop up:first_message_when_debug_fails.JPG

* The first time I tried programming after the new install I got this second error message after the P&E one:


* But now this one comes up after the P&E message:


* One of the first times I tried to debug, it got as far as opening up the debug window and had this message in the console:


But I haven't gotten this message a second time.


Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Please let me know if this question would be better addressed by P&E's support than here.
