Modular development platform for microcontrollers


In October 2011, element14 introduced Freescale Semiconductor Tower System, a modular development platform for microcontrollers and microprocessors.

Features and USP: Freescale Tower System that features multiple modules provides designers with building blocks for entry level to advanced microcontroller development.

There are two types of hardware modules, MCU/MPU and peripheral, which plug into backplane ‘elevator’ boards. MCU/MPU modules act as the main controller board for the assembled Tower System, providing everything from 8-bit, DSC as well as 32-bit processing. Peripheral modules add features and functionality, which include serial connectors, memory options and graphical LCDs. These MCU/MPUs, peripheral modules and elevator boards combine to make a constantly evolving development system based on new and changing design needs.
