Freescale Semiconductor’s newest Freedom Development Platform for evaluating Kinetis K20 MCUs is now available on element14 Pty Ltd .
David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell comments that the FRDM-K20D50M is the latest evolution of Freescale’s Freedom Development Platform series, providing all software and hardware tools needed for evaluation and development.
The new FRDM-K20D50M Development Platform is form-factor compatible with the Arduino R3 pin layout, providing a broad range of expansion board options. The on-board interfaces include an RGB LED, a 3-axis digital accelerometer, capacitive touch slider and ambient light sensor. The FRDM-K20D50M features the Freescale open standard embedded serial and debug adapter known as OpenSDA. This circuit offers several options for serial communications, flash programming and run-control debugging.
The FRDM-K20D50M features the Kinetis MK20DX128VLH5 microcontroller built on the powerful ARM Cortex-M4 processor. With 1.25DMIPS/MHz of processing power and backed by a K20 series memory range from 32KB to 1MB, the new platform is ideally suited to high performance demanding applications.
Premier Farnell offers design engineers a space to share project concepts with 160,000 members on its award-winning online community, element14.
