The company Freesccale (now NXP) chose the name for a series of sets of ratings, based on efficient and modern mikrokontrolerach ARM. Because the freedom that comes from the designer series MCUs Kinetis in terms of choice of main, auxiliary equipment and dimensions of memory, is perhaps the most important advantage of this family of chips. For those who want to start adventure with Kinetis mikrokontrolerami we have prepared not only the basic modules Freescale Freedom, and all the necessary accessories and add-ons that allow for a quick start.
Board with LowPower Kinetis L microcontroller from Freescale - core ARM Cortex M0+. There are additional accessories, i.a.: accelerometer, touch strip and a light sensor. Compatible with popular environments, including ARM Keil and IAR. For programming used is the OpenSDA system with connector miniUSB.
Yes, these two features provide the versatility and design appeal microcontroller MKL26Z128VLH4, which is the heart of the module the Freescale Freedom on the appointment of the FRDM-KL26Z. Rich – because the on Board microcontroller has a place for up to 128 KB Flash memory, 16 KB RAM, I2C, SPI, I2S, and three UARTów, but the USB controller converters ADC and DAC, as well as timers, which you can find up to ten 16-bit PWM channel. Creative – because the core ARM Cortex M0+ is used primarily devices with ultra low power consumption, so necessary in many industries – ranging from objects of everyday use, specialized monitoring systems powered from a battery or batteries and ending with.
Miniature computers Freescale Freedom such as FRDM-KL26Z, on the contrary, SAG from the installed on these devices allows you to instantly start working with the Kinetis microcontroller. Offering the user two USB connectors mini – one is for debugging and power supply plate, while the second can be used in applications that use the USB OTG controller. For experiments with different to ensure maximum throughput of the processor is perfectly useful accessories, such as, for example, sensor light, tri-color led or footprinty prepared for wlutowania goldpinów, exempting outdoor tile line GPIO of the microcontroller. On the Board there was a place in the accessories – strap, multi-touch (slider), with the function of the capacitive interface and the FXOS8700CQ system containing a 6-axis MEMS sensor (accelerometer + magnetometer).
In this category we also prepared the necessary accessories that will allow you to connect to the Board, the Freescale Freedom FRDM-KL26Z additional modules and devices. A great starting point is the purchase of a set of connecting cables with a length of 20 cm – includes three 40-wire cables, all possible configurations of contacts (masculine-male, żeńsko-female and male-female). During the experiments with mikrokontrolerami Kinetis useful to separate the wires and USB extension cable A-A 1.8 m.
