Kinetis KL2 Development Board

Kevin Cuzner

Objective

Create a development board for a bare-metal ARM Microcontroller with minimal parts while allowing for maximum prototypability.

Purpose

To learn from hard experience what exactly is needed to implement from the ground up a platform using an ARM-based microcontroller

Idea

The board will have the following:

  • The Freescale MKL26Z32VFM4 48Mhz ARM Cortex-M0+ microcontroller, 32QFN (5mm)
  • Any needed support componenets
  • A DIP-compatible footprint. The goal is to be near the size of a teensy.

The goals are as follows:

  • $10 price point
    • $2.72 for the uC
    • $5 board
    • $3 supporting components
      • Perhaps a USB port even
  • Easy to construct with sufficient SMD soldering skill
  • We will produce 3 of them
    • 1 practice, 2 assembled on camera
