Newbee with the 56F8300 SDK

Started by remkomg77 March 15, 2004
Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and new to DSP's. Recent activity has been
arround the 683xx and hc11, hc12 mcu's but never with the metrowerks
enviroment. Basically I saw the add for the 56F8300SDK and went for
it :)
Today I've received my package, allong with a few questions. Please
endulge me in these "simple" questions for now.

First: The add on the motorola site claimed it came allong with a
16K complementary compiler. The metrowerks CD says it's an 8K
compiler. Then again the add-on cd from motorola says the compiler
goes up till 8K words (which in my book makes 16K). I would like it
to be 16K bytes but I'm not sure. However I did get lucky and filled
up a 1M data array without any warnings :)

To see if all works I would like to build and download the E Field
demo because I know what the aplication is supposed to do (the same
as it is doing now) but I't won't build due to "licence
restrictions".

Sorry for the simple stuff.

Regards, Remko

The tiered pricing of Codewarrior for the 56800/800E is based on
program memory use. The more you pay the larger the program memory
supported. Basically on the linker is different in each tier.

You need to send in the MWRegistration text found in the Licensing
subfolder to Metrowerks () to get information
you plug into the license.dat file. If you haven't generated the
text file run MWRegistration.exe in the Licensing subfolder.

8KWords of program memory is the same as 16 Kbytes.


Hi,

I just ran the MWRegistration.exe, it gave an error so I handmailed the
textfile... I know about the metrowerks licencing, bucks for bytes
and/or filenumbers. I don't mind a 16Kbyte limit but to me it seems that
when I order a SDK package with hardware and software demo's I should be
able to build and download the samples to the target. I allready got the
licence.dat file from Metrowerks but the IDE only tells me my codesize
is too large, not that I've exceeded the 16K limit. I'll wait for a
reply from metrowerks and then continue getting it to work. I don't
intend to use the E field sensor so I can do without the demo (however
it would have been nice to toy with it).
Peronaly I allways like to build, download and run a demo before
attempting to implement my own code. I'll browse the cd and see if I can
find another nice demo.

Regards, Remko

You can also request a full temporary license that is good for 30 days. This will enbale to use the E field sensor demo. This demo actually exceeds to the 16 KB limit because we used part of the prorgam area to store the voice. This is true of the Voice Recorder also. The 16 KB limit is a limit on program area usage only. If you go to the Rapid Development CD it has some more examples in the 56F8300 Demo Board and Examples. The example programs after the Inrtroduction to PE section are all small and easily fit in the 16 KB limit.
