Newark element14 will now stock the Freescale Semiconductor Freedom development platform KL02Z evaluation and development tool, designed for the rapid prototyping of microcontroller-based applications.
Featuring the new energy efficient Kinetis KL02 ARM Cortex-M0+ MCU, the KL02Z Freedom Development Platform offers design engineers 32-bit performance at the cost of traditional 8 & 16-bit MCUs, making it the ideal cost-effective replacement for legacy processors. The platform is available through Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, and element14 in Asia Pacific.
The Freescale Freedom development platform KL02Z is available for $12.95 and is designed for low-power devices, including portable consumer devices, remote sensing nodes and ingestible healthcare sensing applications. Its flexible design enables a wide variety of design prototypes including those dependent on battery power or energy harvesting.
Features include an easy access MCU I/O, battery-ready low-power operation and a standard-based form factor with expansion board options. The FRDM-KL02Z incorporates OpenSDA, the Freescale open standard embedded serial and debug adapter, which offers multiple options for serial communications, flash programming and run-control debugging.
