Prework for SEGGER J-Link
In order to use and program the Infineon XMC microcontrollers in the Arduino IDE, SEGGER J-Link must be installed on your PC. Please follow this link to SEGGER J-Link and install the J-Link Software and Documentation Pack for your operating system. If you have already installed 'DAVE™ - Development Platform for XMC™ Microcontrollers', you can skip this step as the respective drivers/programs are already installed on your system.
Note: The XMC-for-Arduino BSP installs the XMC Flasher tool used to flash the compiled firmware (.hex) into the XMC device. However this tool requires Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment to be installed in the host system. Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment version 1.8.0 is known to be compatible with the tool.
Using Arduino IDE
Paste the following URL into the 'Additional Boards Manager URLs' input field under File > Preferences to add Infineon's microcontroller boards to the Arduino IDE.
Easier to copy (no clickable link):
To install the boards, please navigate to Tools > Board > Boards Manager... and search for XMC. You will find options to install the board files for the microcontrollers. Click "Install" to add the boards to your Arduino IDE.
Note: For information on separation of release packages from version 2.0.0 onwards, see below.
In the boards list Tools > Board, the XMC microcontroller boards are added and can be used from now on.
- This integration will only work for Arduino IDE >=1.5
- The XMC1100 Boot Kit has limitations if compared to the official Arduino boards (consult the XMC-for-Arduino Wiki for more information)
- Refer also to the LICENSE.md/txt file for further information
- Arduino 1.8.0 IDE might have problems with the XMC-for-Arduino releases
- XMC-for-Arduino support for 'arm-linux-gnueabihf' only until version 1.1.
Separation of release packages from version 2.0.0 onwards
Certain obsolete boards (see wiki) and non-functional libraries were removed from the board support package for the release version 2.0.0, alongwith some other major changes (see release notes). However, in order to support legacy code, these removed boards/libraries are still available as a part of release version 1.7.0. Hence, the release packages have been split as shown in the pictures below.
The boards until version 1.7.0 have been clubbed under XMC Family V1.x.
Any new board or feature integration will only be done in the XMC Family V2.x
Using PlatformIO IDE
- What is PlatformIO?
- PlatformIO IDE
- PlatformIO Core (CLI) (command line tool)
- Integration with Cloud and Desktop IDEs - Cloud9, Codeanywhere, Eclipse Che (Codenvy), Atom, CLion, Eclipse, Emacs, NetBeans, Qt Creator, Sublime Text, VIM, Visual Studio, and VSCode
