Creating a new project with FreeRTOS in IAR?

Hi,

I built a SDK with FreeRTOS using MCUXpresso SDK builder.

I was wondering how I would open/load that SDK into IAR EW?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You would not be able to open the MCUXpresso project in IAR, but you can create a project and add the same source files into it - provided there is nothing that is GCC specific that is not supported by IAR.

I find the easiest way to do this is to find an example IAR project for your target hardware, make sure that works, then use it as a base for the project you want to create. That way you start with the correct start up files, linker script, etc.
