    Let your design ideas free! The FRDM-KL26Z allows you to quickly prototype your next application by taking advantage of the many features of the NXP Freedom platform. The FRDM-KL26Z is a small Arduino™ pinout compatible evaluation board featuring a low-power Kinetis L series microcontroller with USB and I2S support, built on the ARM® Cortex™-M0 core.

    The FRDM-KL26Z development board features a MKL26Z128VLH4, which boasts a max operating frequency of 48MHz, 128KB of flash, 16KB RAM, a full-speed USB controller, and loads of analog and digital peripherals. It’s the next generation of the pioneering KL25Z processor, adding I2S support along with other new features and enhancements.

    With the ARM Cortex M0 based Kinetis L family, it is now possible to leverage 32-bit capabilities and the scalability needed to expand future product lines, all at 8- and 16-bit price points and power consumption levels. The KL26 device featured on the board is a Kinetis L superset part, and can be used to evaluate the KL26 and KL16 Kinetis L series devices. It’s also upward compatible with the more powerful Cortex-M4 based Kinetis K20 family of devices, providing an easy upgrade path to the next level of performance.

    Freedom To Do More

    The FRDM-KL26Z on-board interfaces include the new FXOS8700CQ 6-axis digital accelerometer and magnetometer, a capacitive touch slider, and an ambient light sensor. The KL26 device is also supported by the major ARM toolchains like Keil, IAR, CodeWarrior, Red Suite, and more, and has complimentary RTOS and USB stack support with MQX-Lite and Processor Expert. Plus the FRDM-KL26Z is form-factor compatible with the Arduino™ R3 pin layout, meaning easy access to a multitude of digital and analog IO, as well as the availability of hundreds of community created shields and endless possibilities.

    The FRDM-KL26Z also features the NXP standard embedded serial and debug adapter, known as OpenSDA, built right into the board. This circuit offers several options for serial communications, flash programming and run-control debugging all over a simple USB cable. Ditch the expensive debugger and complicated flashing procedure: just drag, drop, and run!

    Enjoy design freedom that fits in the palm your hand by prototyping with this powerful microcontroller with a low-power core, all on a flexible low-cost platform. Coupled with a large ecosystem of compatible hardware and software, it’s the freedom to do more.
