Hi Martin,

Yes there is:

File-> New Project->Create project in new solution->A C/C++ executable for Cortex-M processor->Select target device e.g. MCIMX7D5_M4

This will generate a generic project for the imx7 device for the M4 core.

Best regards,
Nino

Thank you Nino,

I had a first look at the os-x version of embedded studio and there is no MCIMX7.
But the windows version has one. I will try it tomorrow on my phycore-zeta board.

Hello Martin,

The difference on Mac and Linux is that the JLinkDevices.xml (which is used to add all future devices) from the J-Link software install folder does not get referenced automatically like it does under Windows.
That is why it is not showing for you under Mac.
You can however enable this by copying the JLinkDevices.xml to the ES install folder where the J-Link DLL is located.
Now you should be able to pick the device under Mac as well.

We are currently working on a better solution for this inconvenience under Mac and Linux.

Best regards,
Nino

Just installed the Linux 3.30 version, and no iMX7 targets shown .. :whistling:

.. But copying JLinkDevices.xml helped.
