IAR launches development kit for Freescale Kinetis K60 and modular Tower System
February 11, 2011 // Phil Ling
IAR Systems today announced availability of a new IAR KickStart Kit for Freescale Semiconductor's ARM Cortex-M4 based Kinetis family of microcontrollers that is compatible with the Freescale Tower System development platform.
This module-based kit allows rapid evaluation of and prototyping with the Kinetis microcontroller family in application areas such as industrial control, medical, and consumer electronics. It includes hardware boards, debug probe, software tools and code examples.
As part of the Tower System, this evaluation kit comes with the Kinetis K60 MCU module with on-board K60N512 32-bit microcontroller, a serial peripheral module with connectors for Ethernet, USB, CAN, and other connectivity.
In addition, the Kinetis K60 MCU module includes capacitive touch pads, SD card slot, 3-axis accelerometer, buttons and a potentiometer. An additional prototyping module provides a large area where a wide range of applications can be evaluated.
Target connection is provided by the IAR J-Link Lite for Cortex-M debug probe that is included in the kit. It allows SWO debugging including SWO trace that can be used for execution time analysis and visualization of variables and interrupts in the debugger.
IAR Embedded Workbench KickStart and Evaluation editions are included in the kit for software development. The KickStart edition has a 32k code size limit and the Evaluation edition is a fully functional version limited to 30 days.
Integrated project examples for the board using Freescale MQX Software Solutions are provided for quick and easy start up, also when using complex peripherals such as the USB or Ethernet controllers.
IAR KickStart Kit for Kinetis K60, part number KSK-TWRK60N512 is available in stock. Pricing is 190 EUR or 239 USD.All news
