Hexiwear

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 MK64FN1M0VDC12
Frequency 120MHz
Flash 1MB
RAM 256KB
Vendor MikroElektronika

Configuration

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

[env:hexiwear]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = hexiwear

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

[env:hexiwear]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = hexiwear

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = mk64fn1m0vdc12

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 120000000L

Uploading

Hexiwear supports the next uploading protocols:

  • cmsis-dap
  • jlink
  • mbed

Default protocol is mbed

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:hexiwear]
platform = freescalekinetis
board = hexiwear

upload_protocol = mbed

Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “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).

Hexiwear does not have on-board debug probe and IS NOT READY for debugging. You will need to use/buy one of external probe listed below.

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