USB-MSD bootloader for the KwikStik development board

Posted on Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 in dev boards by Ian

Mark made a USB bootloader for the Kwikstik development board. We covered this board in April, and they’ve promised us 5 to give away when the next batch is in.

I have added K40 (including KwikStik) support to the uTasker project. See the following for details:

It includes a USB-MSD boot loader for the KwikStik, an SLCD demo as well as an SLCD simultor (see the video and docs for details and check out the binary and executables, run the simulated SLCD and modifiy the script file for other types) on the SW-demo page.

Thanks Mark! Via the comments.

    Seems interesting, definately gonna take a look at utasker.
    I have one of this KwikStiks, its feature rich and only cost $30 (too bad that shipping was $45 and customs taxes were $30 XD)

    Hi All

    The original Kinetis USB-MSD-Boot loader is shown in operation here on a K60 Tower Kit but works the same on the K40 kit or Kwikstik:

    Binaries are on the following page, allowing it to be loaded and tested: – including the K40/SLCD simulator.

    I have CW 10.1, and MQX 3.7.
    import the Demo-kwikstik, but leaves Error. not compile.

    I do step by step how demo.pdf Freescale says, but not working.

    as you worked? … I owe thanks

    I would use the MQX forum for MQX specific problems:

    You could also look at the uTasker project since it should be less complicated than MQX and works with CW10.1, IAR, KEil, Rowley Crossworks or simple GCC standalone. It simulates the Kinetis (in real time) and now supports all devices from K10 up to K60 and allows project development tests to be made in a VisualStudio environment, which can further simplify and accelerate development.
