EmbSysRegView 0.2.6 for NXP Kinetis Design Studio V3.2.0

Kinetis Design Studio by default uses an older version of EmbSysRegView. This article explains how to upgrade to the latest and greatest version 0.2.6. And how it is possible to use the latest NXP update for the 0.2.4 version:

Installed Files in Eclipse

First, uninstall any older version (see Uninstalling Eclipse Plugins):

Uninstalling older Plugins

Next, install the latest 0.2.6 plugin with the data files as explained in EmbSysRegView 0.2.6 for Eclipse Neon and Oxygen

With this we have the latest plugin installed. But the data is not the latest, as NXP has released a new set of data which is not part of the SourceForge site:

SVD Files Update for 0.2.4

SVD Files Update for 0.2.4

Using that update does not work as it expects the 0.2.4 plugin (which does not make any sense to me?). Amway, all what I want is the data.

I can download locally any Eclipse update site with the approach described inReplicating an Eclipse Update Site for Offline Usage. Otherwise: I have extracted the data and put on SourceForge, see links section.

With that approach I get the com.nxp.svd-embsysregview-0.2.4.sp_root_1.0.0.b170427 file:

KDS Eclipse Update Mirror

The trick is that the file is actually a .zip file, so change the extension to get its content: Open the zip file:

NXP 0.2.4 files

NXP 0.2.4 files

To make the files available to the EmbSysReg viewer, open the EmbSysReg Data file as zip file:

EmbSysDataJarFile

EmbSysDataJarFile

I prefer to have them in a spearate folder:

Added 0.2.4 Files

Added 0.2.4 Files

That way I can pick the files I want in Eclipse:

Happy EmbSysRegistering 🙂
