Keil's MDK-Professional version

Started by Sutton Mehaffey January 14, 2014
Anyone bought the Keil MDK-Professional Suite that includes their
libraries for USB, SD cards, and TCPIP? They want about 8K for the
package (upgrade) and I wanted to know if anyone has used it and thinks
it is worth it? More if the libraries actually work and have been
beneficial to your development. Thanks.

Hi Sutton,

I didn't buy it but due my collaboration with NXP I used some temporary
Pro licenses and also working at client sites I used it.

I think that they changed their offer a couple of years ago so I will
try to explain the situation.
Originally Keil added to the normal release some libraries in source code:
- RTX a real time system
- FlashFS a file system for flash memories and SD
- CAN a can driver library
- TCPnet ethernet and TCP/UDP stack
- USB (added in 2nd time) an USB stack

These libraries are original Keil source code libraries.

Recently if I understood well the PRO package includes some external
libraries as emWin by Segger (I used emWin in object code downloaded
from www.lpcware.com) that I don't know so much apart emWin.

So, I know the tools I listed before and I can say that they were (and
still are) quite good when they delivered them, actually there are a lot
of open source libraries that are comparable to them. The advantage is
that Keil delivers a lot of low level drivers needed for their and
others development boards so probably you don't need to write yours and
they are well layred because they need to have more then one low level
layer from the beginning and of course they are tested.

Another thing that is strange to me is that last times I downloaded the
MDK time limited editions is that those libraries were installed both in
object and source code. So I think you could try to download them and
see if they are ok for you. Ithink you could make some tests also with
the 32KB limited edition.

I've tried that. It won't download unless you have the MDK-Pro
version. Must be new. It would be nice to test out a little of the
functionality before shelling out 8K.

Hi Sutton,

Our company MYIR distributes the tools in Chinese mainland. Many of
our ARM boards are provided with MDK-ARM sample codes.
The tool is powerful for development. I think you can download the trial version
for an experience first. Anyhow the trial version has limited functions.
