This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

NXP Semiconductors K32 L3 Freedom Development Board

NXP Semiconductors’ K32 L3 Freedom Development Board demonstrates the energy efficiency and security features of the K32 L3 family of MCUs for building automation, industrial applications, and smart home devices. 

The board is based on the K32L3A6, which features a high-performance Arm Cortex-M4F and an efficient Cortex-M0+. The MCU also incorporates security features such as a resource domain controller, cryptographic subsystem, and secure boot. 

The K32 L3 Freedom Development Board adds serial flash memory, an accelerometer and magnetometer, visible light sensor, and support for a micro SDHC card slot, and hardware can easily be added using the Arduino R3 compatible headers.

The board has four selectable power sources, including the USB connector, and development is fully supported with NXP’s easy-to-use MCUXpresso IDE.

  • Arm Cortex-M4F: high-performance processor at up to 72MHz for application code 
  • Arm Cortex-M0+: low power processor at up to 72MHz for low power tasks, such as sensor data collection
  • Security: Resource Domain Controller, Cryptographic subsystem, Secure Boot, and more
  • Additional hardware: 4MB SPI Flash, accelerometer/magnetometer, visible light sensor, SDHC circuit
  • Hardware expansion: Arduino R3 compatible headers
  • Four selectable power sources including USB connector
