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.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
