Hi, I am new here. I found that there has been a lot of versions of update for S32 DS, from update 1 to update 9.

Shall I install all updates? Or just to install the latest update?

Hello Leo,

these updates are cumulative, so you can install the last update only and all previous updates will be installed too. Please the link below: 



Thanks so much for your reply.

And I found that there are two kinds of S32ds : 2017R1 and V1.2. What is the difference between them? What kind of S32DS shall I use ?(I work with DEVKIT-MPC5744p).

Thank you previously.

Hello Leo,

S32DS 2017.R1 is the newest version. There are some bugs fixed and also, newer version of SDKs are supported. I recommend to use 2017.R1, because S32DS 1.2 is pretty old.



Thank you so much
