TWR-K40X256 Tower控制器模块

The TWR-K40X256 is a Tower Controller Module compatible with the Freescale Tower System. It can function as a stand-alone, low-cost platform for the evaluation of the Kinetis K30 and K40 family of microcontroller (MCU) devices. The TWRPI-SLCD segment LCD daughter card is included as part of the TWR-K40X256.

The TWR-K40X256 features the Kinetis K40 low-power microcontroller based on the ARM® Cortex™-M4 architecture with USB 2.0 full-speed OTG and segment LCD display controllers. The K40X256 includes 256Kbytes of program flash storage and an additional 256Kbytes of FlexMemory non-volatile storage that can be used as additional program flash memory, data flash, or variable size/endurance EEPROM.

The TWR-K40X256 is available as a stand-alone product or as a kit (TWR-K40X256-KIT) with the Tower Elevator Modules (TWR-ELEV) and the Tower Serial Module (TWR-SER). The TWR-K40X256 can also be combined with other Freescale Tower peripheral modules to create development platforms for a wide variety of applications.

The TWR-K40X256 is a Tower Controller Module featuring the MK40X256VMD100—an ARM Cortex-M4 based microcontroller with segment LCD and USB 2.0 full-speed OTG controllers in a 144 MAPBGA package with a maximum core operating frequency of 100MHz. It is intended for use in the Freescale Tower System but can operate stand-alone. An on-board debug circuit, OSJTAG, provides a JTAG debug interface and a power supply input through a single USB mini-AB connector.
