Freescale Kinetis

Configuration

platform = freescalekinetis

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.

For more detailed information please visit vendor site.

Debugging

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

Tools & Debug Probes

Supported debugging tools are listed in “Debug” column. For more detailed information, please scroll table by horizontal. You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Warning

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

On-Board Debug Tools

Boards listed below have on-board debug probe and ARE READY for debugging! You do not need to use/buy external debug probe.
