Which edition is the right one for you?
The Lite edition is the perfect fit for small projects with limited code size (up to 32 KB). Students and hobbyists can make use of the powerful IDE and compilation tools without the need for a commercial solution. If you want to evaluate MDK, start using the Lite edition and enable all features using the built-in free 7-days MDK-Professional trial license.
The Cortex-M edition removes the code size restrictions for Cortex®-M based processors and provides a professional development and debug solution.
The Standard edition adds support for the classic cores ARM7™ and ARM9™, SecurCore®, as well as Cortex®-R4 based devices.
MDK-Professional is the all-in-one solution for software projects that require Middleware libraries (File System, Graphic, Network, and USB Host/Device) or are targeted for safety-critical applications.
All editions of MDK share the same system requirements. Verify that your computer at least meets the minimum requirements before you install MDK.
