MDK-Core is based on µVision (Windows only) with leading support for Cortex-M devices including the new Armv8-M architecture.

MDK includes Arm C/C++ Compiler with assembler, linker, and highly optimized run-time libraries that are tailored for optimum code size and performance.

Software Packs may be added any time to MDK-Core making new device support and middleware updates independent from the toolchain. They contain device support, CMSIS libraries, middleware, board support, code templates, and example projects.

The IPv4/IPv6 networking communication stack is extended with Mbed™ TLS to enable secure connections via the Internet.
