MDK Microcontroller Development Kit
Arm Keil MDK
Microcontroller Development Kit
Keil MDK is the most comprehensive software development environment with out-of-the box support for over 5,500 Arm Cortex-M based microcontrollers.
MDK is split into the MDK-Core and software packs which makes new device support and middleware updates independent from the toolchain.
The industry-standard Arm C/C++ Compiler is TÜV certified for use in safety applications up to the highest safety integrity levels (SIL). The Arm Compiler Safety Package, available in MDK-Professional, enables fast toolchain qualification for any functional safety standards.
