Multilink Universal Rev B support for NXP Kinetis MKW36A

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to program NXP Kinetis MCU MKW36A using Multilink Universal Rev B debugger on MCUxpresso IDE. Everytime I try to program I get a pop up notification

    "P&E Connection Assistant: An error occurred while connecting to the interface hardware or target specified in the Launch Configuration Dialog"

    We tried multiple retries but couldn't get out of this error. Also we tried connecting to different USB ports in the PC. The same issue is not reflected with Multilink Universal Rev D debugger.

    Does Rev B debugger support NXP Kinetis MKW36A512VHT4 device ?


  • Hi,

    Yes, we support the KW3x family, including the KW36A512M4 device.

    Please check the following:

    1. What settings do you have specified in your Debug Configurations -> Debugger tab? Specifically, does it recognize your Multilink, and do you have "KW36A512M4" selected as your target?

    2. Do you have our Eclipse plug-in installed in MCUXpresso? (See:,
