Product Description

The NXP Freedom development platform is a set of software and hardware tools for evaluation and development. It is ideal for rapid prototyping of microcontroller-based applications. The FRDM-KL26Z features a Kinetis L series microcontroller, built on the ARM Cortex-M0+ core.

It features a MKL26Z128VLH4 device, boasting a maximum operating frequency of 48MHz, 128KB of flash, 16KB RAM, a full-speed USB controller and a rich set of analogue and digital peripherals. The FRDM-KL26Z hardware has form-factor compatibility with the Arduino™ R3 layout, with a broad range of expansion boards available. The on-board interfaces include a 3-axis digital accelerometer, magnetometer, capacitive touch slider, and ambient light sensor.

The FRDM-KL26Z features the NXP open standard embedded serial and debug adapter known as OpenSDA. This circuit offers several options for serial communications, flash programming and run-control debugging. There are also many software development tool options available to the user. Choices include CodeWarrior for Microcontrollers, IAR Embedded Workbench, Keil MDK featuring the μVision IDE, Red Suite from Code Red Technologies, Atollic TrueSTUDIO, Rowley Crossworks, and many more. Several features aid the rapid building of prototypes - a powerful microcontroller built on a very low-power core and SoC platform, easy access to I/O with a large ecosystem of compatible hardware, a flexible programming and debug interface, and a large ecosystem of software development environments.

Key Applications: Low-power applications, Battery-operated applications, USB peripherals, Consumer applications, etc..
