Low cost MCU offers 32-bit processing and low power consumption

15 October 2013, London – Farnell element14 has announced it will stock the new Freescale Semiconductor Freedom development platform KL26Z, designed to assist design engineers in the evaluation of the latest KL26 and KL16 devices.

Featuring the new Kinetis MKL26Z128VLH4 MCU, the KL26Z Freedom Development Platform offers design engineers high processing power at a low cost, making it the ideal board for evaluating the latest KL26/16 devices. The development platform is available through Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, and element14 in Asia Pacific.

The Freescale Freedom development platform KL26Z will be available for $15 and is designed for low-power consumption devices with high processing demands, supplying 32-bit processing power alongside a broad set of analog, communication, timing and control peripherals. The KL26 offers designers the highest memory and pin counts of the KL2x range of devices, as well as incorporating a full speed USB 2.0 On-The-Go controller with an integrated low-voltage regulator.

Other features include 128 KB flash memory, 12-bit DAC, 16-bit ADC and standard communication peripherals, including I2S. Onboard extras include a capacitive touch slider, 6-Axis Xtrinsic Sensor with Integrated Linear Accelerometer and Magnetometer, tri-color LED and Arduino form factor compatible headers.

David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell said, “This is a positive product development for us as it represents a true step forward in the performance available to those developing low-power microcontroller-based solutions. Thanks to its extensive connectivity capabilities, the KL26Z opens up a world of energy efficient analog, communication, timing and control applications to engineers.”
