MCUXpresso Software Development Kit (SDK) Incorporates A Free Version Of Micro CANopen FD Library
The latest release of the MCUXpresso software development kit (SDK) from NXP incorporates a free version of the EmSA's (Embedded Systems Academy) Micro CANopen FD library.
The MCUXpresso IDE provides embedded development engineers an easy-to-use Eclipse-based development environment for NXP MCUs based on ARM Cortex-M cores, including its general-purpose crossover and Bluetooth-enabled MCUs. The MCUXpresso IDE comes with advanced editing, compiling, and debugging features with MCU-specific debugging views, code trace and profiling, multicore debugging, and integrated configuration tools. The MCUXpresso IDE debug connections support Freedom, Tower system, LPCXpresso, i.MX RT-based EVKs, and other custom development boards with industry-leading open-source and commercial debug probes from NXP, P&E Micro, and SEGGER.
The library contributed by EmSA is available for various micro-controllers of the LPC54xxx and LPC55xxx families. Support for the i.MX RT family is in planning. The CANopen FD libraries are separated by their support for devices and managers. The software samples demonstrate a generic input and output device and a minimum control application. The libraries are fully functional. There is, however, a limitation on the number of supported PDOs and node IDs. The license allows developers to integrate these libraries into commercial projects. For more details on the CANopen FD libraries in MCUXpresso SDK, there are various videos on the NXP Youtube channel.
Open1768 - LPC1768 ARM Cortex M3 Development Board
Open1768 is an ARM Cortex-M3 development board that features an LPC1768 device as the microcontroller. It supports further expansion with various optional accessory boards for specific applications. The modular and open design makes it ideal for starting application development with the ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller.
The MCUXpresso IDE brings developers an easy-to-use Eclipse-based development environment for NXP MCUs based on ARM® Cortex®-M cores, including many others, the LPC series processors.
The MCUXpresso IDE offers advanced editing, compiling, and debugging features with the addition of MCU-specific debugging views, code trace and profiling, multicore debugging, and integrated configuration tools.
The MCUXpresso IDE is available in full-featured free (code size unlimited) and affordable professional editions.
