Microcontroller Driver Suite v10.3 is a software management system that generates C code to create, configure, optimize, migrate and deliver software components, such as peripheral drivers, for Kinetis and ColdFire+ processors. The driver suite is delivered and installed as a comprehensive product with the Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) IDE. It is also available as an Eclipse plug-in for existing Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo) and Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) installations. The Driver Suite does not include a compiler or linker. You merge the generated code into a build system. This functionality is integrated into the CodeWarrior tools. The Driver Suite provides the same kind of support for our ecosystem tools partners. This extends Processor Expert software functionality to non-CodeWarrior IDE users for the supported platforms.
The Processor Expert technology packaged in the driver suite makes it much easier to optimize the low-level intricacies of a hardware platform. Eliminating the necessity for one-size-fits-all drivers, the driver suite allows you to design custom peripheral drivers ideally suited to your needs, without the need for extensive hardware knowledge.
