Premier Farnell announced the global availability of Freescale Semiconductor’s newest Freedom Development Platform for evaluating Kinetis K20 MCUs at element14. The new FRDM-K20D50M Development Platform is form-factor compatible with the Arduino R3 pin layout, providing a broad range of expansion board options. The on-board interfaces include an RGB LED, a 3-axis digital accelerometer, capacitive touch slider and ambient light sensor. The platform features 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. The FRDM-K20D50M features the Kinetis MK20DX128VLH5 microcontroller that is built on the ARM Cortex-M4 processor. With 1.25 DMIPS/MHz of processing power and backed by a K20 series memory range from 32 KB to 1 MB, the new platform is suited to high performance demanding applications.
