The K70 SOM is specifically designed to make it easy, quick, and cost-effective for embedded system designers to start using the Kinetis K70 device and uClinux software in their applications.
“I’m excited to see uClinux running on Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 based microcontrollers,” said Kent Meyer, cofounder and Managing Director at Emcraft Systems, LLC. “Many embedded system developers recognize the cost- and time-to-market benefits of using embedded Linux. With our system-on-modules product line, we extend those benefits into the hardware design domain. System-on-modules take away the complexity of designing a core embedded system, allowing hardware designers to focus on the specific requirements of their application.”
The Linux BSP and software development environment that are bundled with the K70 SOM are provided in full source code and royalty-free.
The K70 System-on-Module is priced at $49 in 500-unit quantities. Further information on this module can be found at http://www.emcraft.com/freescale-kinetis-k70-som.
