K8x devices are designed for secure applications, with advanced security capabilities including boot ROM to support encrypted firmware updates, automatic decryption from external serial NOR flash memory, hardware AES acceleration built with side band attack protection, and hardware support for Public Key Cryptography. These features are implemented while maintaining a high level of compatibility with previous (formerly Freescale) Kinetis MCUs.
NXP has designed the FRDM-K82F development board to provide flexibility by including a range of expansion options, including Arduino R3 compatible pin layout, FlexIO header, sufficient footprint to include optional Bluetooth and RF expansion modules, as well as a broad range of other expansion board options.
Other features include :
Maximum operation frequency of 150 MHz, 256 kB of flash, 256 kB RAM
A full-speed USB controller with available crystal-less operation
Onboard six-axis digital accelerometer and magnetometer
OpenSDAv2.1, the Freescale mbed HDK-compatible open-source hardware embedded serial and debug adapter
Can be used to evaluate the K80, K81, and K82 Kinetis K series devices
The NXP FRDM-K82F development board is available from Farnell element14 in Europe for €43.82/£31.86.
