    Overview

    Vybrid controller solutions utilize ARM® Cortex™-A5 and optional ARM Cortex-M4 together with a peripheral set commonly required for control and communications in a broad range of industrial applications. To facilitate evaluation and development, the NXP Tower System offers the TWR-VF65GS10 processor module, based on the Vybrid VF6xx dual heterogeneous core solution.

    This processor module (TWR-VF65GS10) can operate as a standalone debug tool or as part of an assembled Tower System development platform (TWR-VF65GS10-KIT) . Add full support from MQX™ RTOS Software Solutions, Timesys Linux® BSP and the ARM® DS-5™ Starter Kit for Vybrid Controller Tower System module and your next application-rich design is at your fingertips. For more robust functionality, try the TWR-VF65GS10 as part of an assembled Tower System kit. Create your own kit by selecting peripheral modules based on the features and functionality you need. Each kit comes with the free ARM DS-5 Starter Kit for Vybrid Controller Tower System module.

    The TWR-SER Serial Module provides USB, Ethernet, CAN and RS232/485 connectivity solutions for designers developing with the NXP Tower System. This peripheral module is designed to be combined and used with other MCU and peripheral modules in the Tower System.

    The TWR-ELEV Elevator modules are the basic building block of the NXP Tower System. Designed to connect MCU and peripheral modules, the Elevator modules provide the power regulation circuitry and structural integrity needed for all configurations of an assembled Tower System.

    Key Applications: Appliances with motors and pumps, Building control (Elevator and automated doors) , Energy grid protection (Circuit breakers, monitors and hubs) , Industrial pumps and fans, Infrastructure control (Water treatment and gas pipelines), Kiosks with 2D displays, Mobile patient care (Infusion pumps and respirators), Motor drives, Power inverters, Service robots.
