Kit Overview


Freescale offers a full set of hardware platforms for evaluation of the cost-effective MC1323X System on Chip (SoC) solutions (like 1323XDSK-BDM1323XDSK-BDM ). Designers may choose the hardware and software platform that achieves their design goals. The newest SoC product family integrates the 2.4 GHz transceiver, HCS08 series microcontroller, memory and input/output (I/O) in a single package. The 8-bit integrated alternative allows easy implementation of cost-effective solutions for those familiar with Freescale’s HCS08 family and for those just starting out with embedded wireless design. The MC1323X kits are optimized to support SynkroRF and RF4CE consumer applications as well as many general market applications while allowing designers to achieve their end system cost targets.


MC1323X family development kits (1323XDSK-BDM1323XDSK-BDM) are built on three modular boards, each of which offer features and functions targeted at consumer electronics applications. The modular boards are assembled into specific configurations to allow straightforward system development. The modularity of the solutions offers designers the opportunity to select specific structures (using reference design materials and content) for direct implementation into their end systems, thereby reducing design time and associated costs.


The MC1323x family is Freescale’s low cost  System-on-Chip (SoC) platform for the IEEE 802.15.4  Standard that incorporates a complete, low power, 2.4  GHz radio frequency transceiver with Tx/Rx switch, an  8-bit HCS08 CPU, and a functional set of MCU  peripherals into a 48-pin LGA package. This family of  products is targeted for wireless RF remote control and  other cost-sensitive applications ranging from home TV  and entertainment systems such as ZigBee BeeStack  Consumer (RF4CE) to low cost, low power, IEEE  802.15.4 and ZigBee end nodes. The MC1323x is a  highly integrated solution, with very low power  consumption.
