element14 launches NXP Freedom K82F development board for secure applications


    Dev board for rapid development of scalable, secure, low-power applications

    Bangalore – 11 February 2016  – element14 has added the newest NXP Freedom development board, FRDM-K82F, to its family of Freedom development boards for the Kinetis K82, K81, and K80 MCU series of high-performance, low-power, security-enabled microcontrollers built on the ARM Cortex-M4 core.

    Building upon the Kinetis family of microcontrollers, the K8x series 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 advanced features are implemented while maintaining a high level of compatibility with previous Kinetis MCUs.

    With the addition of the FRDM-K82F development board, element14 expands our portfolio of embedded solutions for applications requiring scalability and advanced security, including point-of-sale and IoT-enabled devices. Additionally, NXP has designed this development board to provide great 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.
