Ethernet IoT Starter Kit

Hardware

Platform Freescale Kinetis: Freescale Kinetis Microcontrollers is family of multiple hardware- and software-compatible ARM Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M7-based MCU series. Kinetis MCUs offer exceptional low-power performance, scalability and feature integration.

Microcontroller MK64FN1M0VLL12
Frequency 120MHz
Flash 1MB
RAM 256KB
Vendor Freescale

Configuration

Please use IBMEthernetKit ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

[env:IBMEthernetKit]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = IBMEthernetKit

You can override default Ethernet IoT Starter Kit settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest IBMEthernetKit.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:IBMEthernetKit]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = IBMEthernetKit

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = mk64fn1m0vll12

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 120000000L

Uploading

Ethernet IoT Starter Kit supports the next uploading protocols:

  • cmsis-dap
  • jlink
  • mbed

Default protocol is mbed

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:IBMEthernetKit]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = IBMEthernetKit

upload_protocol = mbed

Debugging

Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Warning

You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Ethernet IoT Starter Kit has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.

Compatible Tools On-board Default
CMSIS-DAP Yes Yes
J-LINK
