What is the behaviour of the pins on factory fresh MKV31F512VLL12P?

I am creating a custom hardware using MKV31F512VLL12P. However, I am not able to communicate with the chip using Kinetis Motor Suite GUI.


I am using FRDM-KL25Z as serial communications device. Here are my connections:


[FRDM-KL25Z, D0, J1:Pin_2]  is connected to [MKV31F512VLL12P, PTB16/UART0_RX, Pin_62]

[FRDM-KL25Z, D1, J1:Pin_4]  is connected to [MKV31F512VLL12P, PTB17/UART0_TX, Pin_63]

[FRDM-KL25Z, GND] is connected to [MKV31F512VLL12P, GND]


[MKV31F512VLL12P, ~RESET, Pin_52] is connected to 3.3V using a 10k pull-up resistor and to GND using a 100nF.


These are chips I gathered as samples from NXP. Do they have the same behaviour on PTD1, PTD7 and PTE25 pins as they have on the FRDM-KV31F board as RGB LEDs? Should they blink according to status of the program?


What I see on the ~RESET pin is a sawtooth-like waveform at about 1.5 kHz, with a Vpp of 1.7V. Below is a scope shot of this. If I should guess, then this could be the waveform of a blank Kinetis chip fresh from factory..


Then, since this is not a normal operation, with the help of SWD connector on the board, I go to "USBDM Flash Programmer GUI" and do a "Detect Chip" operation. I am being careful here NOT to program or erase. Then, USBDM resets the chip, reads the chip ID successfully, then leaves the ~RESET pin in HIGH level.


Then, I try to connect using Kinetis Motor Suite GUI again, there is data going in at 115200 baud but there is no return. Also, pins PTD1, PTD7 and PTE25 remain LOW.
