element14 takes pre-orders for new low-cost ARM Cortex-M0+ processor-based platform
June 22, 2012 // Julien Happich
element14 now supplies the new Freescale Freedom development platform for Kinetis KL2 32-bit MCUs.
Working in close collaboration with Freescale, element14 claims to be the first and only distributor to take early orders for the Freescale Freedom development platform. To make it easy for designers to use this platform, element14 also provides a full ecosystem solution with complete technical data and easy access to design tools and engineering experts. The company offers the board on a pre-order basis, allowing designers to secure first access to the newly manufactured boards immediately upon availability in Q3, 2012. The new low-power, ultra affordable development board will allow for quick application prototyping and demonstration of this new technology, which is poised to dramatically transform consumer and industrial applications that currently employ legacy 8- and 16-bit architectures.
The Freescale Freedom development platform is a small, low-power, cost-efficient evaluation and development system for quick application prototyping and demonstration based on the Kinetis L series, the industry's first microcontrollers built on the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor. The development platform combines an industry-standard form factor with a rich set of third-party expansion board options. The Freescale Freedom development platform is form-factor compatible with popular third-party hardware designed to work with Arduino and Arduino-Compatible boards, providing engineers the “freedom” to connect to a broader range of expansion boards to achieve even greater technological breakthroughs. Access to additional design tools available from Freescale, include Processor Expert software, and the Kinetis MCU Solution Advisor, plus all the detailed information necessary to perform new evaluations using the development system, are also available at the knode on element14.
The development platform will also be center stage in an upcoming Webinar series at the element14 community, featuring how-to sessions and technical support for real-world applications and design environments.
