Hi, I have just purchased a TWR-K60F120M TWR-SER system. My main goal is to implement Ethernet communication. Which software tool is most adapted for what I want to achieve?
The Freescale website seems to have so many options and it is kind of overwhelming for somebody like me who wants to get into C programming. My background is FPGA design.
I would recommend using MQX to get up and going very quickly. It includes a fully feature Ethernet stack with all source code included, and has projects specific for the TWR-K60F120M. You can download it from here: http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MQX
Make sure to read the following documents:
C:\Freescale\Freescale_MQX_4_1\doc\MQX_Getting_Started.pdf (and make sure to read section 9.13 for jumper configurations for the TWR-K60F120M and TWR-SER)
And then based on the IDE you want to use (I'd suggest Kinetis Design Studio to get started with if you don't already have one picked out) read the appropriate documentation in C:\Freescale\Freescale_MQX_4_1\doc\tools. It'll have instructions for compiling the MQX libraries.
You can find several example Ethernet programs in C:\Freescale\Freescale_MQX_4_1\rtcs\examples
Finally you may also want to look at the TWR-K60F120M Quick Start Demo package. It was built for an older version of MQX so the project/instructions are slightly outdated, but the instructions included in the package still have useful information for updating OSJTAG and other board information: http://cache.freescale.com/files/32bit/software/app_software/code_examples/TWR-K60F120M_QSD.zip
Anthony, please forget my previous post regarding the error... I rebooted and tried again and things seems to work now.
Thanks for your valuable suggestions. I just received the hardware and finished installing MQX.
I am getting this error when trying to install the demo software from the Freescale website.
Any idea what could be doing this?
