We're very pleased to announce the new mbed-enabled Freescale FRDM-KL25Z board!
We've been working with Freescale on the development of their new range of ultra-low-cost boards, and from today you can upgrade them for free to be mbed-enabled and get free access to the mbed online compiler and development platform.
It is great to be able to welcome Freescale to the mbed project!
About the FRDM-KL25Z board
The FRDM-KL25Z Freescale Freedom development board uses the Kinetis L series of MCUs, the industry’s first microcontrollers built on the ARM® Cortex™-M0+ core. The board is based on the KL25Z128VLK, a tiny KL2 family device that runs at 48 MHz, has 128 KB of flash, a full-speed USB controller and various analog and digital peripherals. The FRDM-KL25Z hardware is form-factor compatible with the Arduino™ R3 pin layout, so it'll work with lots of existing shield designs. The board includes some bonus features of an RGB LED, a 3-axis digital accelerometer and a capacitive touch slider.
Freescale FRDM-KL25Z supported in the mbed platform!
We've been working with Freescale to add support in the mbed SDK, HDK and Online Tools for the KL25Z, so now you can use the FRDM-KL25Z board with the mbed development platform for free!
We'll be introducing additional mbed-enabled development platforms from Freescale (and others) in 2013.
