NXP Semiconductors MC56F80000-EVK Evaluation Kit

NXP Semiconductors MC56F80000-EVK Evaluation Kit is an ultra-low-cost development platform for the MC56F80x digital signal controllers MCU family with form-factor compatibility to Arduino™ R3 pin layout. This evaluation kit board is a simple yet sophisticated design featuring the MC56F80748 DSC. This device combines the processing power of a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and the functionality of a microcontroller (MCU). The MC56F80000-EVK board features OpenSDA that provides an onboard debugger and a virtual serial port for rapid prototyping and product development. The onboard interface exhibits a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer, PWM and user LEDs, buttons, ADC test circuits, OPAMP test circuits, and external serial flash memory.
