Keil MDK

MDK - Microcontroller Development Kit

Keil MDK developed by Arm is the most comprehensive software development solution for Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers. It includes IDE, C/C++ compiler, debugger, software pack management and CMSIS. MDK software packs add device support and software components that are managed using the new Run-Time Environment (RTE). Real-time debug and trace capabilities are improved with RTOS stack watermarking and Event Viewer.

The MDK-Plus edition adds middleware components and the MDK-Professional adds encryption and a TÜV-certified compiler for safety critical applications. In addtion, with Arm FuSa RTS a complete offering of embedded software components qualified for use in the safety-critical applications is available.

Benefits of ARM Keil MDK

Many silicon vendors offer ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers and bundle them with their own free development tools. These days, software developers need to support different devices and vendors. This means additional work for them to learn and master these tools. This increases development costs and time-to-market. Keil MDK is supports all silicon vendors with over 3800 devices and is easy to learn and use. Switching the target device in a late design phase can be accomplished quickly using this toolchain.

Multi-core debugging with MDK

Arm Keil MDK has been capable of debugging multi-core devices since the first dual-core microcontrollers came to market. Lately, new additions enabled multi-core debugging with the free CMSIS-DAP debug adapters and the latest member of the ULINK family: ULINKplus.
