Keil Information Update – November 2017

This newsletter provides the latest information about Keil embedded development tools and provides you with links to the latest product updates, product news and information, and dates of trade shows and training opportunities.


  • ULINKplus ultra-compact debug probe
    The new ULINKplus enables software optimization for ultra-low power applications, test automation, and isolation for high-speed debug and trace. The CMSIS-DAP mode is supported by a wide range of debuggers and a special introduction offer is available.
  • MDK v5.25 pre-release
    MDK version 5.25 introduces support for ULINKplus, contains several editor enhancements, and allows continuous logging of the Event Recorder output. It also includes Arm Compiler 6.9 that improves performance by about 10%.


  • ULINKplus – a new dimension for power-aware debug
    Webinar – Thu, Nov 30, 2017 10:00 CET and 09:00 PST
    In this webinar, we demonstrate ULINKplus with the new System Analyzer, a graphical tool that shows power measurement synchronized to software events, interrupts, and variable changes. It provides a better insight into the overall execution of the embedded system.
  • Using “Modern C++” for Efficient Embedded Systems
    The most popular webinar – now available on demand

    Our partner Doulos introduces the C++ language constructs and coding styles that are suitable for Arm Cortex-M based embedded systems. Doulos shows how a C++ application using the latest language features results in code that is easier to reuse and maintain without incurring a significant overhead when compared to traditional C.
  • Getting started with LoRa using Arm Mbed and the Things Network
    Webinar – Wed, Nov 29, 2017  9:00am GMT & 5:00pm GMT
    Join experts from Arm Mbed and The Things Network as they discuss the capabilities of LoRaWAN technology.
  • Improve your IoT product design with enhanced software and a custom SoC/ASIC
    Tue, Dec 12, 2017 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM GMT
    Join this webinar by Arm and IAR to learn how to access proven IP and advanced software for faster time to market with a custom SoC/ASIC


  • Embedded Software Engineering Kongress
    Germany, Sindelfingen — Dec 5-7, 2017

    We will showcase Keil MDK with various new targets such as the NXP S32K platform for automotive and industrial applications. Our technical experts will also demonstrate power measurement with ULINKplus and are available to answer your questions.


  • Moving from 8 to 32 bit – workshop
    ST workshop on various locations in Europe

    The availability of price-competitive, feature-rich and easy-to-program 32-bit microcontrollers are just a few of the reasons why you should transition to an Arm Cortex-M platform. Learn how to use STM32 devices with the Keil MDK toolchain.
  • Azure with STM32L4 IoT Disco Kit
    ST workshop on various locations in USA

    This one day seminar uses STM32CubeMX and Keil MDK to generate and debug a range of IoT projects using the STM32L4 Discovery kit IoT node. Application engineers will be available on-site to assist you with questions.
  • Product Development with ARM DS-MDK
    Spain, Bilbao — Nov 28, 2017

    Arm’s Distributor Captura will explain the difference of debugging on Fixed Virtual Platforms (FVP) and hardware. We explore two examples based on Arm Cortex-M and NXP i.MX7 (Cortex-A7 + Cortex-M4).
  • i.MX7 96 Board Workshop
    UK, Cambridge — Dec 12, 2017

    Join Arm, NXP, Arrow Electronics, and Hitex for this workshop to gain practical hands-on experience in combining the Linux Operating System with the Real Time OS of the Cortex M4.
  • Internet of Things and MDK
    Italy, Milan — Dec 12, 2017 and Dec 13, 2017

    The workshop uses Keil MDK to demonstrate development IoT nodes and gateways and their interfacing with the Cloud using STM32 microcontrollers.
