The SDP-K1 (EVAL-SDP-CK1Z board) is one of Analog Devices' Mbed enabled boards. Based on an STM32F469NI microcontroller, it allows users to easily develop drivers and example code for Analog Devices products and evaluation boards. The CMSIS-DAP hardware circuit and DAPLink firmware in the Freescale processor, allows SDP-K1 board to be easily programmed and debugged. The board has an Arduino header and 120-pin SDP connector making it compatible with many Analog Devices evaluation boards.
Mbed is used by Analog Devices to develop and distribute drivers for Analog ICs. Mbed is an online IDE developed by ARM. It is open-source and supports controller boards with Cortex ARM core processors. These controller boards are developed by various companies including Analog Devices, ST Microcontroller, NXP, Renesas etc. Mbed allows for development using:
The platform is available at no cost for customers and is easy to use. A major advantage to Mbed is that the example programs can be run on other Mbed enabled boards that customers are familiar with as long as it meets the hardware setup requirements. This allows for the evaluation of parts regardless of the controller board available.
Each product with Mbed support comes with:
All the code files will be shared on the code tab of Analog Devices Mbed web page https://os.mbed.com/teams/AnalogDevices/code/. Each project comes with a README.txt that explains how to use the code. This document is a user guide on how to use the code to evaluate products supported with Mbed code. It explains in more detail, the Mbed setup instructions written in the README.txt. The hardware setup instructions depends on the product and evaluation board used and will be explained in the README.txt.
