Thank you to everyone for your patience, there has been a severe shortage of FRDM-K64F's due to high demand. In order to ameliorate the issue, we have been talking to IBM and ARM who have produced…
Those of you who received the ARM / IBM kit may find this interesting -
I’m stuck on getting this board to work with the mbed HTTPClient, asked for help there:
do any of you have any pointers or ideas?
Woah, that was quick. Thanks for clearing that up
Yes, I was quiet busy with my projects and I just had enough time to keep track of few things happening here in this community(as you know, once you get in here you just can't go far from this world, isn't it? )
I am still worried about my roatest review, I need to complete it asap and many things are still pending till date.
What about you? I guess you already have operated that kit succesfully with all your tools, drill machines, lasers beams, hammers, acids etc. etc.
The Keil example codes are not building, as it is showing some path issues. Does any one tried this board with linux based arm-none-eabi-gcc?
Also is it possible to do source level debugging on this board without an external debugger? Any openocd support available? Got this board three days before, feeling little bit strange compared to stm32, lm4f, lpc etc Also couldn't find a lot of documentation and working examples compared to ST and TI. The good thing I noticed is the mass storage bootloader ...
I got one of these kits to review. My plan was to write a review based on using the K64F with MBED to do very similar things as the kit, so it was slightly ironic that I got a kit to do exactly that. It's nice that you can get something working within minutes of opening the box but just using the K64F board you achive the same thing, you've just got a bit more coding, which isn't always a bad thing, you'll end up with a much more flexible solution. I'm going to stick with my original plan and show how you can do similar thinsg just with the K64F i.e. I'm not using the addon board or the IBM services.
For my review I've created a few examples, I've a simple "weather station" which uses a combination of connected sensors and web services to show how you can easily get forcast data from web APIs The example also shows how you can use the popular thingspeak api to chart your results. I've also got an example of updating a webpage real time with the Accelerometer + Magnetometer data from the board. I've just finished getting the examples working so I'll start on the write up this week
If I get a chance I'll add on a review of the complete kit.
Regardless if you use the Add-on board the K64F and the MBED platform is a nice environment which you can read about in my review shortly
