[Freescale K20D50M MCU Programming] #2 Blinky Red LED onboard

#2  Blinky Red LED onboard

Lets try out blinking the RED onboard LED. We are going to use Codewarrior and processorexpert with FRDM-K20D50M board

Take a look at the [Freescale K20D50M MCU Programming] #1 Helloworld on the Console using Processor Expert  for quickstart 

Lets get started.

First we need to see the schematic to identify the onboard LED.  There is a good youtube video which gives an example on K25Z board.

LED  Schematic :

Red LED connected to D6.
Green LED connected to D3
Blue LED connected to D9

Identify the Ports and Pins for the LED's :

Red, look for D6

Green, Look for D3

Blue, Look for D9

The FRDM-K20D50 CPU uses the Blue LED. So, this has to be disabled to get this on-board LED to work.

Then Lets add BITIO_LDD component, 1 for each LED to control them.

Now lets setup the Bit_IO pins for the 3 LED's.  LED Cathode is connected to the microcontroller pin. i.e., Low Level (0) turns it on, and (1) turns it off.   By default we need to set all the 3 LED's to (1) to turn it off.

WE add 3 BitIO_LDD Components, for RED, Green and Blue. 

Green LED -> Switch off by Default. Cathode connected. So 1 is Off

Blue LED -> Switch off by Default. Cathode connected. So 1 is Off. But this pin is used by CPU, so enable PIN Sharing.

Red LED -> Switch ON by Default. Cathode connected. So 0 is On.

Now build and Run the Main.c  you will see the RED LED glowing by the code is flashed.

Now lets make a blinky. :-)

We need to enable the NegVal() method of the BitIO_LDD

And add this code in the main.c or processorexpert.c

int main(void)
/*lint -restore Enable MISRA rule (6.3) checking. */
  /* Write your local variable definition here */

  /*** Processor Expert internal initialization. DON'T REMOVE THIS CODE!!! ***/
  /*** End of Processor Expert internal initialization.                    ***/

 int i =0;
 RED_LED_NegVal(NULL);  // Blink the RED Led

Here is the blinky.
