MikroE adds supports for NXP Kinesis MCUs to universal software development kit
MikroElektronika (MikroE) has added support for 147 Kinesis microcontrollers from NXP to its multi-architectural software development kit
mikroSDK 2.0 is a collection of open-source software libraries with unified API and software development tools that makes application code portable and reusable on many different platforms and architectures, with virtually no code changes.
The addition of NXP’s Kinetis family takes the number of MCUs supported by mikroSDK 2.0 to over 1500, ranging from small 8bit to 32bit devices. Other notable product families covered include PIC and PIC32 by Microchip and the 849-strong STM32 family from STMicroelectronics. New devices and architectures are added regularly.

“It doesn’t matter if you are currently evaluating PIC, falling in love with ARM, or just interested in a new architecture on the market. mikroSDK means that the application code will run on the architecture of your choice. Choose any supported host board and there is no need to change a single line of code,” said Nebojsa Matic, CEO at MikroE.
mikroSDK 2.0 also includes applications for its Click board peripherals and GUIs for embedded devices so that developers do not need to consider low-level code, freeing them up to focus on the application code itself. This means that changing the MCU or even the whole platform will not require developers to redevelop their code for the new MCU or platform. Switching to the desired platform requires the application of the correct board definition file, and the application code will continue to run after a single compiling.
