Kinetis KE17Z/KE13Z/KE12Z MCUs

NXP's MCUs are highly robust and offer up to 50 touch channels

Image of NXP's Kinetis KE1xZ MCUsNXP's KE1xZ MCUs are based on the Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core, running up to 72 MHz. These MCUs support up to 256 KB Flash, 48 KB RAM, and a complete set of analog/digital features. An optional robust TSI module provides a high level of stability and accuracy to any HMI system. The 1 Msps ADC and FlexTimer modules provide an ideal solution for BLDC motor-control systems. The MSCAN IP (offered on selected part numbers) is ideal for CAN node control and auto aftercare market applications. NXP offers KE17Z/KE13Z/KE12Z with up to 256 KB Flash and 48 KB RAM, bringing dual TSI with up to 50 channels into the Kinetis E product portfolio.

The FRDM-KE17Z is designed to work in standalone mode or as the main board of FRDM-TOUCH, FRDM-MC-LVBLDC, and Arduino® boards.

This board is compatible with DC 5 V and 3.3 V power supplies and features a KE17Z, a device boasting up to 256 KB Flash and 48 KB SRAM as well as numerous analog and digital peripherals. The onboard interfaces include an RGB LED, an ambient temperature sensor, and two capacitive touchpads.
