    The TWR-K60F120M-KIT is a development Kit for the Kinetis K10, K20 and K60 family 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 MCUs. The TWR-K60F120M-KIT main board (TWR-K60F120M) is populated with a device rated for 120 MHz operation across the full -40C to 85C temperature range. At room temperatures the board can be over-clocked to 150 MHz to allow for evaluation of the K10, K20, and K60 devices that are rated for 150 MHz operation across the full temperature range.

    The TWR-K60F120M is available as a stand-alone product or as a kit (TWR-K60F120M-KIT) with the Tower Elevator Modules (TWR-ELEV) and the Tower Serial Module (TWR-SER). The TWR-K60F120M can also be combined with other NXP Tower peripheral modules to create development platforms for a wide variety of applications.

    The TWR-K60F120M is a Tower Controller Module compatible with the NXP Tower System. The TWR-K60F120M features the Kinetis MK60FN1M0VLQ12 low-power microcontroller based on the ARM® Cortex™-M4 architecture with USB 2.0 HS Controller, USB 2.0 full-speed OTG controller and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet MAC with a maximum core operating frequency of 120MHz. It is intended for use in the NXP Tower System but can operate stand-alone. An on-board debug circuit, OSJTAG, provides a JTAG debug interface and a power supply input through a single USB mini-AB connector.

    The Kinetis MCU portfolio consists of multiple pin-, peripheral- and software compatible MCU families based on the ARM® Cortex™-M4 core. Families are built from innovative 90 nm thin-film storage (TFS) flash technology with unique FlexMemory (EEPROM) capability, and offer industry-leading low power and mixed signal analog integration.

    Key Applications: Consumer (Home Appliances), Industrial ( Programmable Logic Control, Portable Electronic Point of Sale Terminals, Building Control, LCD Control Panel, Smart Cities Connectivity Through IPv6, Smart Grid and Smart Metering, Digital Power Conversion, Factory Automation )
