Embedded Development Kit With CAN FD, LIN BUS, Bluetooth Connectivity For Gateway Design

Posted by Industry News on

NXP has released its KW38 micro-controller, which provides all components for automotive gateway designs. The wireless MCUs integrate the long-range capability with Bluetooth low energy (BLE) version 5.0 and generic FSK radio. Delivering a -105-dBm sensitivity with LE-coded 125 kbit/s data rate provides reliable connections in harsh environments and at extended distances. The data stream buffer permits the capture of radio parameters without stalling processor or DMA operations. This feature provides measurements required for distance and angle approximations. The radio supports up to eight concurrent secure connections in master/slave combinations allowing multiple authorized users to interface with the device.

The MCU integrates an on-chip FlexCAN module, which supports CAN FD as specified in ISO 11898:2015. The module supports 32 message buffers that are configurable for transmission or reception. The clock source is programmable, either peripheral clock or oscillator clock. The priority of mailboxes and the receive Fifo is selectable.

The KW38 freedom development board comes with a 2.4-GHz Bluetooth interface and generic FSK wireless connectivity. Furthermore, it features CAN FD and LIN Bus connectivity. The product can also be used as a shield for a host processor board. It comes with 4-Mbit external serial flash, multiple power supply options, push/capacitive touch buttons, switches, LEDs, and integrated sensors.
