NXP Releases MCUXpresso Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Software
New software combines support for the LPC and Kinetis MCU's into a single package
NXP Semiconductors have released the MCUXpresso Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
which completes full availability for its MCUXpresso suite of software and tools
that unifies development support for its powerhouse portfolio of microcontrollers (MCUs).
The new IDE enables customers to design across thousands of NXP's popular LPC and
Kinetis MCUs based on ARM® Cortex®-M cores, while using the same software suite.
The MCUXpresso IDE features simple, scalable and user-friendly interfaces and tools and
is built to leverage the capabilities of the highly popular MCUXpresso SDK and Config Tools.
The new feature-rich, Eclipse-based framework completes the trio of powerful MCUXpresso software development solutions and
provides access to thousands of new project wizards and clone projects, saving designers valuable time
by giving them a head-start to customize their own innovations.
“If design tools are simple, yet comprehensive, our customers stand a much better chance of designing tomorrow's
next amazing innovation,” said Geoff Lees, senior vice president and general manager of the microcontroller business line at NXP.
“This unified software enablement gives developers more choice in high-quality controller solutions to fit
their design needs. NXP will continue to stay ahead of the design trends and expand our MCUXpresso software and tools
to support a variety of products in the future, ensuring our customers have access to the most comprehensive
design tools on the market.”
MCUXpresso SDK and Config Tools
Available in full-featured free and professional upgrade editions, the MCUXpresso IDE unifies Kinetis and LPC microcontrollers
under a set of compatible tools. With a dedicated quickstart panel, automatic probe detection and configuration,
and an intuitive project creation and cloning wizards, the MCUXpresso IDE is designed to ease developers
through the setup and optimization of their projects to application design and even multicore development.
The MCUXpresso IDE supports full-featured, advanced debugging with unlimited code size and code profiling
in the free offering, adds advanced trace features in the professional edition, and preserves hardware investments
by supporting Freedom, Tower® System, LPCXpresso boards and custom hardware platforms.
This MCUXpresso SDK release adds new device support and includes examples and project files for use in the new MCUXpresso IDE.
The MCUXpresso SDK also now includes support for NXP’s NTAG I2C Plus connected NFC tag for home-automation and
consumer applications and will soon support the FRDM-KW41Z board designed for portable,
extremely low power applications requiring Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) v4.2 and IEEE® 802.15.4 RF connectivity.
The MCUXpresso Config Tools offers a single powerful configuration environment with pins and clocks tool for
dynamic generation of initialization C code, and quickly guides users to example projects and web-based tools
for rapid board bring-up.
