Linux BSP for NXP TWR-K70F120M




The Linux BSP for the NXP (Freescale) TWR-K70F120M-KIT provides a software platform for evaluation and development of Linux on the NXP Cortex-M4 based Kinetis K70 microcontroller. This BSP targets those customers who already have a NXP TWR-K70F120M module and a Tower system and would like to use that platform for evaluation and development of Linux on the K70.

This is a software-only product. Please purchase the TWR-K70F120M-KIT boards from NXP or its distributors.

Kinetis K70/K61 Linux Starter Kit


Emcraft Systems provides a Linux (uClinux) software distribution and a starter kit for the NXP Kinetis K70 and K61 microcontrollers. The K70/K61 Linux starter kit is based on the K70 SOM, which is an Emcraft Systems' compact (30 mm x 57 mm) mezzanine module using the NXP Kinetis K70 microcontroller. By combining a 150 MHz K70 microcontroller with 64 MB LPDRAM, 128 MB NAND Flash and an Ethernet PHY on a single module, the K70 SOM provides a perfect platform for evaluation and development of the Linux on the K70/K61 devices.
