The Freescale Freedom Development Platform is an evaluation and development tool ideal for rapid prototyping of microcontroller-based applications. The hardware design is form-factor compatible with popular third-party hardware designed to work with Arduino™ and Arduino-compatible boards.
The Freescale KE02Z Freedom Board (FRDM-KE02Z) is a simple, yet sophisticated design featuring the Kinetis E Series microcontroller MKE02Z64VQH2, built on the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ core. The Kinetis E series is the most scalable portfolio of low-power, high-robustness, mixed signal 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ MCUs running up to 20 MHz in the industry. It supports power supply voltage range from 2.7–5.5 V, ambient operating temperature range from –40 °C to 105 °C and includes up to 64 KB flash memory.
The FRDM-KE02Z includes the Freescale open standard embedded serial and debug adapter known as OpenSDA. This circuit offers several options to the users for serial communications, flash programming, and run-control debugging. Some of the software development tool options available to the user are CodeWarrior for Microcontrollers, IAR Embedded Workbench, Keil MDK featuring the uVision IDE, Atollic TrueSTUDIO, Rowley Crossworks, and others.
Key Applications: Appliances, DC fans, Metering/PLc, Offline UPS, Analog Power, DC/DC
