TWR-MCF51CN-KIT simplifies configuration with modular hardware development platform
Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it is the first to stock Freescale’s Tower System. Freescale is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors.
Freescale’s Tower System evaluates Freescale solutions with easy to use, modular, reconfigurable hardware. The interchangeable microcontroller and peripheral boards leverage standardized, open source hardware, making it simple to create customized plug-and-play development tools for all of your design needs. The first development kit (TWR-MCF51CN-KIT) in this new platform configuration includes the elevator module (TWR-ELEV) that provides all the power regulation and structural integrity for a complete Tower System, a modular development platform (TWR-MCF51CN) supporting the ColdFire® V1 MCF51CN128 Ethernet microcontroller and included complimentary MQX software, and a peripheral module (TWR-SER) to provide USB, Ethernet, CAN, and RS323 / 485 connectivity solutions. Additional microcontroller platforms are planned and will also be available from Mouser. For more information about Freescale’s Tower System, visit http://www.mouser.com/freescale_tower_system/.
“Mouser is excited to be the first to stock these latest Freescale development tools, again reiterating Mouser’s focus on progressively supporting the needs of the design engineering community,” stated Mike Scott, Mouser’s Vice President of Active Products.
