What's new in MDK v5.28a

Free edition for Holtek Arm Cortex-M0+ based devices
Improved µVision debug support

Learning Platform

Keil MDK is the most comprehensive software development solution for Arm-based microcontrollers and includes all components that you need to create, build, and debug embedded applications.

MDK Version 5.28a introduces a free edition to program Holtek's Arm Cortex-M0+ based devices. It improves support for devices that have a trace clock that is independent from the core clock and can save the output of System Analyzer in a file for further processing.

Note: The 7-day MDK-Professional trial license does not work with MDK v5.26/v5.27/v5.28. If you require a trial license, please contact your distributor or Arm sales.

New: Keil MDK Holtek edition

Keil MDK offers free support for Holtek devices based on Cortex-M0+ and a low-cost solution for Holtek devices based on Cortex-M0+/M3.

Improved: Support for independent trace clock

For tracing, most Arm Cortex-M based devices run on the core clock. But some devices have a separate trace clock. µVision now has the ability to set the trace clock separately from the core clock, so that trace is captured and processed correctly. This is available for all ULINK debug adapters and CMSIS-DAP.


New: Save System Analyzer output

System Analyzer is a graphical analysis tool that shows power measurement data, exceptions and thread execution over time, value changes of VTREGs or variables, as well as incoming events from Event Recorder.

The System Analyzer output can now be saved as a comma separated or tab separated value file for further processing:
