The MCUXpresso toolset provides developers with improved scalability, usability and portability, making it easier and faster to develop complex embedded applications, Electronics Weekly reports.

The toolset extends existing features with new IDE offerings, including a purpose-built MCUXpresso extension for Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code (VS Code), an open source-based hardware abstraction for code reuse, facilitated delivery of partner code using Open-CMSIS-Packs, and a new Application Launch Pad for easy, interactive access to application software and documentation from NXP.

Developer experience is the foundation of efficient, rapid and innovative product development.

“By expanding access to open-source communities and simplifying integration of specialized partner software, we’re helping developers drive innovation, scale their projects, bring complex products to market faster, and easily migrate between NXP devices and platforms”,

said NXP svp Charles Dachs.

The new MCUXpresso toolset features the newly released MCUXpresso for VS Code, designed for fast and responsive source-code editing. This new IDE will enhance flexibility by expanding build system choices, including those favored by open-source projects such as Zephyr and Matter, while maintaining support for developers using the traditional MCUXpresso SDK. Developers also have access to existing IDE options, including MCUXpresso IDE, IAR Embedded Workbench and Arm Keil development tools.

The new Application Launch Pad also serves as a central repository for application design resources, including application software packages, application notes, and application code examples with an intuitive portal to browse available software.
