Kit Overview

The DEMO9S08LC60DEMO9S08LC60 Demonstration board has been designed for the evaluation, demonstration and the debugging of the Freescale MC9S08LC60MC9S08LC60 microcontroller. The DEMO9S08LC60 can be used as a standalone application, or via its built-in USB-to-BDM bridge, or together the Freescale Student Learning Kit (Freescale code: MCUSLK) through an external 40-pin I/O header female connector.


The operating modes of the  MC9S08LC60MC9S08LC60 Series are described in this section. Entry into each mode, exit from each mode, and functionality while in each of the modes are described below:


  • Active background mode for code development
  • Wait mode:
    • CPU halts operation to conserve power
    • System clocks running
    • Full voltage regulation is maintained
  • Stop modes:
    • CPU and bus clocks stopped
    • Stop1: Full power-down of internal circuits for maximum power savings
    • Stop2: Partial power-down of internal circuits, RAM contents retained
    • Stop3: All internal circuits powered for fast recovery; RAM and register contents are retained; LCD module can be configured to remain operational


Key Applications: Battery operated hand-held devices, Portable health care devices, Thermostats, Alarms/clocks, Exercise equipment, Personal diagnostics, Calculators, Low-end utility metering, ZigBee™ nodes with display, Scrolling text displays, Small appliances.

Kit Features



The DEMO9S08LC60DEMO9S08LC60 board features:


  • MC9S08LC60MC9S08LC60 microcontroller (in 80-pin LQFP package, already programmed with a demapplication)
  • One clock sources: a 32.768 KHz crystal, selectable via the “CLK ENA” jumpers.
  • A 12 V DC Power Supply Input Connector
  • Power input selection jumpers for selecting the input voltage source:
    • 12 V DC input connector
    • USB connector
  • A built-in USB-to-BDM circuitry which allows the host PC tcommunicate with the microcontroller through a standard USB interface. USB 2.0 is fully supported. When using an external in-circuit debugger (via the “BDM” connector), the USB-to-BDM circuitry must be bypassed by removing the BKGD and RESET# jumpers in the “IO2 ENA” jumper strip.
  • A Reset push-button connected tthe MCU Reset pin.
  • A series of inputs:
    • Four push-buttons together with jumpers tconnect/disconnect them to/from the microcontroller
    • A potentiometer, together with a jumper tconnect/disconnect it to/from the PTA0 pin of the microcontroller
    • An NTC-based temperature sensor, together with a jumper tconnect/disconnect it to/from the PTA7 pin of the microcontroller
    • A photocell, together with a jumper tconnect/disconnect it to/from the PTA1 pin of the microcontroller
    • An accelerometer (Freescale MMA7260Q). All of the sensor’s input/output lines are connected the microcontroller via jumpers
  • An series of outputs:
    • Eight high-efficiency (low-current) LEDs together with jumpers to connect/disconnect them to/from the microcontroller
    • A piezoelectric speaker, together with a jumper tconnect/disconnect it to/from the PTC2 pin of the microcontroller
    • A custom LCD.
  • An RS-232RS-232 channel connected to the microcontroller’s SCI serial communication interface. The microcontroller’s PTC0/RxD and PTC1/TxD lines are used by the RS-232 channel.
