KDS 3.1.0/KL02/Multilink Universal Issue
Brian P. Feb 4, 2016 at 11:00 AM (11:00 hours)
Staff: Johnny N.

  • I am using KDS 3.1.0 with the P&E Multilink Universal for Kinetis KL02 and KL03 uC targets. I constantly get an error when attempting to launch a debug session. 

    This error appears after the P&E Connection Assistant prompts me to attempt a couple of retries.

    Error in final launch sequence
    Failed to execute MI command:
    -target-select remote localhost:7224

    Error message from debugger back end:
    Remote communication error. Target disconnected.: No error.
    Remote communication error. Target disconnected.: No error.

    Can duplicate this error on my prototype boards as well as a development board. I have read some fixes in this forum like using a slower shift key frequency. I tried this with no success. I am also using the standard cable provided with the P&E Multilink.

    Need input please...

    Many thanks,



    • Brian,

      I'm very sorry for the delay in our response. I have a few questions so I can get a better understanding of your setup.

      1. Which P&E Multilink Universal Revision are you using (A,B,C)?

      2. Do you have any Kinetis Freedom or Tower development boards to test?

      3. Can you try to launch a debug session off a new project with minimal code that is created through the Project Wizard in KDS?

      I have seen some strange behavior with KDS caused by zombie processes that made KDS think the P&E Multilink was attached to another debug session. Check your task manager and check if there are multiple pegdbserver_console.exe processes. If there are, restart your PC.

      Please see this helpful guide from a NXP application engineer for some other helpful troubleshooting tips.
