Infineon XMC4500 Relax Kit
« on: November 26, 2017, 01:23:46 am »
Got a sample for 5 USD yesterday
I wonder: how good/bad is it?

and what about the support on software side?
it's written "supported by DAVE": a RAD? no thanks!

Rapid
Applications
Development

Alternative? (ok, I may write the BSP &C from scratch
using the datasheet, but ...  :D )

so, I downloaded the file "Infineon.XMC4000_DFP.2.9.1.pack"
that should contain a lot of examples and good code for the XMC4500 Relax Kit board
but ... I get strange errors when I try to import it into the PackageManager

I am on WindowsXP, and I can't switch to Windows7,8,10
It seems everything you can download, even in the 32bit support, is ... for Windows7 at least

so, how can I get examples and code, now?  :-//

damn  :palm: :palm: :palm:

Packages can be downloaded from here  :-//

But I only see "Infineon.XMC4000_DFP.2.9.1.pack"
no more "infineon.XMC4000_DFP.2.8.0.pack"
(supposing it was compatible with XP-software)

Since V5.20 and later,  MDK-ARM  is incompatible to Windows XP!
ref here, but what about packages?

I enjoyed my share of fun with Infineon ARMs - https://hackaday.io/project/27250-mcu-how-tos-reviews-rants/log/70767-infineon-scary-movie-part-one
After working with ARMs from ST, NXP, Freescale (now NXP), TI and Silabs, this one was somehow surprising to me.

I don't like DAVE



does someone happen to have MDK519.exe ?
can't find around, and it may solve the problem I have

So, I got Keil MDK v5.18 (the last one available for WindowsXP/32bit)
and I was able to import the Infineon's packages, including examples

unfortunately now the tool says that I need a special license among the following

MDK-PRO MDK Professional Edition
MDK-PRO-T MDK Professional 1 year term
MDK-PRO-FL MDK Professional Edition Floating

Currently I have a MDK-ARM-FL MDK Standard Edition Floating, and the compiler refuses to use the special blocks requested by Infineon's Packages  :palm: :palm: :palm: :palm:


In short: I can compile a "led blinking" example (since I can directly address a gpio easily), but I can't compiler examples that use Ethernet, SD, Cordic-Engine, etc, those parts are pre-compiled-binaries and require a special license  :palm: :palm: :palm: :palm:

The alternative sounds like writing everything from scratch, assembly, C, the whole BSP and drivers, which is of course possible but it's a very time consuming activity  :-//
