The  FRDM-KE04ZFRDM-KE04Z is an ultra-low-cost development platform for Kinetis KE04 MCUs built on ARM Cortex-M0 processor and with 8KB Flash Features include easy access to MCU I/O battery-ready a standard-based form factor with expansion board options and a built-in debug interface for flash programming and run-control

The Freescale Freedom development platform is an ideal evaluation and development tool 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 Kinetis E series is the most scalable portfolio of low-power, high-robustness, mixed signal 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0 MCUs running up to 48MHz in the industry. It supports power supply voltage range from 2.7 V to 5.5 V, ambient operating temperature ranges from -40 °C to 105 °C and includes up to 128 KB flash.

The  FRDM-KE04ZFRDM-KE04Z board includes the Freescale open standard embedded serial and debug adapter known as OpenSDA This circuit offers several options for serial communications flash programming and run-control debugging to the user There are also many software development tool options available to the user Choices include CodeWarrior for Microcontrollers IAR Embedded Workbench Keil MDK featuring the Vision IDE Red Suite from Code Red Technologies Atollic TrueSTUDIO Rowley Crossworks and more

All of these features are combined to give freedom to the user to rapidly prototype the embedded designs: 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: Consumer (Refrigerators, DC Cooling Fan Applications in Computers, Dryers, Room Air Conditioning System, Washing Machines), Industrial (Power Supply (DC-DC), Electric Metering, Control Panels (Elevator), Industrial Machine Control, Circuit Breakers)
