    • Kinetis KL3x, KL4x Tower System Module
    • Kinetis KL3x, KL4x Tower System Module

    Overview

    The TWR-KL46Z48M is a development tool for the KL3x and KL4x families of Kinetis MCUs and select MCUs in KL1x and KL2x families. The TWR-KL46Z48M MCU module is designed to work either in standalone mode or as part of the NXP Tower System, a modular development platform that enables rapid prototyping and tool re-use through reconfigurable hardware. The TWR-KL25Z48M is supported by a range of NXP and third-party development software.

    The Kinetis KL4x family is pin, peripheral and software compatible with all other Kinetis L series families and combines a full-speed USB 2.0 On-The-Go(OTG) controller with integrated low-voltage regulator and a flexible, low-power segment LCD controller with support for up to 376 segments. The Kinetis KL4x family is also compatible with the Kinetis K40 (ARM® Cortex™-M4 core) family, providing a migration path to higher performance and feature integration.
