Freescale's FRDM- KE02Z, a robust, ARM based low-cost board for applications in noisy environments is available from Farnell element14

The distributor has announced it will stock the Freescale Freedom development platform, FRDM-KE02Z, a low-cost development platform designed for rugged EMI performance applications based on the Kinetis E series of MCUs.

Hosting the Cortex M0+ Kinetis E Series microcontroller KE02Z64VQH2; built on the ARM Cortex-M0+ core, the FRDM-KE02Z offers design engineers robust, 5V tolerant EMC/ESD performance, making it the ideal platform for noisy environments. It is available now through Farnell element14 in Europe, for $12.95.

The FRDM-KE02Z is suited to industrial applications, accepting 5.5V Vcc inputs and tolerating up to 5.5V I/Os, and is hardy enough for use in industrial controls, remote communication devices, motor control and battery powered devices.

With an easy access MCU I/O, onboard accelerometer and thermistor sensors, motor control interface, capacitive touch slider and IrDA transmitter and receiver, the FRDM-KE02Z also incorporates OpenSDA, the Freescale open standard embedded serial and debug adapter, which offers users multiple options for serial communications, flash programming and run-control debugging.
