Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. Key Developments
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. Unveils Ultra-Thin Version of Kinetis K22 Microcontroller
Dec 28 15
Freescale Semiconductor Inc. announced that it has unveiled an ultra-thin version of the Kinetis K22 microcontroller, or MCU, integrating 120MHz of performance and an array of memories and interfaces into a package measuring 0.34 millimeters in height. The device is ideal for applications such as chip-and-PIN credit cards, wearables and consumer electronics, where security and small form factors are essential. Freescale's ultra-thin package satisfies the insatiable demand for smaller form factors, more innovative design options and smarter integration. Decreasing the size - and now height - of a MCU presents systems designers with exciting possibilities, including new use cases for innovative applications. For example, Freescale's new MCU could enable new products that monitor a diabetic's glucose levels when adhered to the skin in the form of a stretchable electronic patch, or even under the skin as an implant.
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. Announces Shipping of Kinetis K8x Microcontroller Family
Nov 26 15
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. has announced the shipping of its Kinetis K8x microcontroller family, the company's MCUs based on ARM Cortex-M technology. The company has also introduced the pin-compatible Kinetis KL8x family, which retains many of the same world-class security features, while leveraging the energy-efficiency of the ARM Cortex-M0+ core to address secure mobile applications including point of sale products. Additionally, the Kinetis KL8x MCU family's high performance, encryption/tamper detection features and ultra-low power capabilities extend its reach beyond traditional mPOS pin pads and terminals into more power-restricted payment applications, such as smartphone and tablet attach readers, as well as those embedded in wearable technology. The advanced security and power management features of the Kinetis K8x and KL8x families include: Hardware asymmetric cryptography; Tamper detection; EMV-compatible ISO7816-3 SIM interfaces; Sleep mode power consumption from 2.5µA with the SRAM content retained and RTC enabled (KL8x); and Crystal-less USB OTG controller, 16-bit ADC and multiple serial communication interfaces can all function autonomously in low-power modes with minimal CPU intervention. Kinetis K8x and KL8x families include a high-speed, code- and power-efficient data authentication with support for the latest encryption protocols. Tamper detection enables monitoring of variations in voltage, frequency, temperature and physical attack. EMV-compatible ISO7816-3 SIM interfaces are architected for EMV compliance and supported by an EMV Level 1 software stack.
Freescale Unveils FRDM-K64F Board with Support for ARM mbed IoT Device Platform
Nov 18 15
Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. has announced that its FRDM-K64F board is available now with comprehensive support for ARM mbed IoT Device Platform technologies, including ARM's new mbed OS operating system. Recognized earlier this year as one of the industry's first development boards to fully support mbed, Freescale's FRDM-K64F board enables end-to-end mbed solutions and works with a full complement of mbed technologies including the mbed OS, mbed Client, the mbed Device Connector service and associated mbed tools. Freescale's support for the new mbed OS reinforces Freescale's proven track record of collaboration with ARM on mbed enablement, which includes the FRDM-K64F board serving as the processing platform for two of the first IoT end device-to-cloud solutions for mbed the ARM mbed IoT Starter Kit for IBM IoT Foundation and ARM's mbed solution for Microsoft Azure IoT Suite. Freescale also recently delivered its advanced FNET TCP/IP software stack to the mbed ecosystem. The Freescale Freedom FRDM-CR20A development board for the MCR20A 2.4 GHz wireless transceiver connects with the mbed Enabled Freescale FRDM-K64F, forming an mbed supported solution. The FRDM-CR20A board provides a low-power 802.15.4 radio, and when combined with the FRDM-K64F board, creates the basis for a fully functional, wireless, cloud-connected IoT platform, further enabling new technologies including Thread low-power mesh wireless networks.
