NXP Semiconductors S32K144EVB Evaluation Board

NXP Semiconductors' S32K144EVB Evaluation Board provides a powerful and flexible development system for the NXP S32K144 Microcontroller (MCU). The S32K144EVB features test headers, CAN Bus and LIN communication Bus, user buttons, a potentiometer, touch electrodes, and a pre-mounted S32K144 MCU.

Featuring a small form factor and Arduino UNO footprint-compatible with expansion shield support, the S32K144EVB is low-cost evaluation platform and development system for quick application prototyping and demonstration for the S32K144 32-bit ARM Cortex-M based MCUs. It also provides on-board connectivity for CAN Bus, LIN, UART/SCI, security and easy access to the MCU I/O header pins for prototyping.

The S32K144EVB comes with the MSD Flash Programmer OpenSDA Application preinstalled. OpenSDA is an open-standard serial and debug adapter. This GUI debug utility provides an easy and convenient way to program applications into the S32K144 MCU.

Designers can also choose to use S32 Design Studio IDE with the S32K144EVB. S32 Design Studio IDE is a complimentary integrated development environment for Automotive and Ultra-Reliable MCUs that enables editing, compiling, and debugging of designs.

Features:

  • Supports S32K144 100LQFP
  • Small form factor size supports up to 150mm x 100mm
  • Arduino™ UNO footprint-compatible with expansion shield support
  • Integrated open-standard serial and debug adapter (OpenSDA) with support for several industry-standard debug interfaces
  • Easy access to the MCU I/O header pins for prototyping
  • On-chip connectivity for CAN, LIN, and UART/SCI.
  • Integrated SBC (UJA1169) and LIN phy (TJA1027)
  • Potentiometer for precise voltage and analog measurement
  • RGB LED
  • Two push-button switches (SW2 and SW3) and two touch electrodes
  • Flexible power supply options
    • MicroUSB
    • External 12V power supply

Embedded Systems: Introduction to ArmĀ® Cortex™-M Microcontrollers

This book, now in its fifth edition, is the first in a series of three books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to the ARM Cortex-M family of microcontrollers. This fifth edition focuses on the LaunchPads based on both the TM4C123 and TM4C1294 microcontrollers. This first volume is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. 

The second volume, Embedded Systems: Real-Time Interfacing to ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers, focuses on hardware/software interfacing and the design of embedded systems. There are MSP432 versions of the first two volumes. 

The third volume, Embedded Systems: Real-Time Operating Systems for ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers, is an advanced book focusing on operating systems, high-speed interfacing, control systems, and robotics. The third volume could also be used for professionals wishing to design or deploy a real-time operating system onto an ARM platform.

This first book is an introductory book that could be used at the college level with little or no prerequisites. An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. This book is an introduction to embedded systems. Specific topics include microcontrollers, fixed-point numbers, the design of software in assembly language and C, elementary data structures, programming input/output including interrupts, analog to digital conversion, digital to analog conversion. More Information...
