Farnell element14 announced the addition of the Freescale Freedom FRDM-K22F development kit to its portfolio.

The new development board is the second Freedom board featuring a Kinetis K next-generation microcontroller and crystal-less USB controller.  It is targeted at USB applications that require a high level of integration and the lower-power capabilities of the new generation of ARM Cortex-M4 core; @120MHz with Floating Point Unit and embeds 512KB Flash and 128KB RAM in a LQFP64 package.

The development board features a 6-axis accelerometer and magnetometer, RGB LED and Arduino R3 I/O connectors, and the new OpenSDAv2 serial and debug interface. It is suited for applications which require a high performance and low-power MCU, including:

home and building automation

industrial / commercial sensor nodes

Internet-of-things data concentrators

health and wellness monitors, sports and activity wearables

gaming accessories

Included in the K22F are out-of-box demo applications :
Bubble level - red and green LEDs indicating level
eCompass - indicating magnetic north
USB CDC demo - second serial terminal
Metal detector - direction and distance to a metal object
Stopwatch - real-time counter with 1/100th of a second precision
air mouse; USB mouse to determine where/how to move the cursor
