Freescale delivers i.MX tools for the developers' toolbox

ORLANDO, Fla. (Freescale Technology Forum) – Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE:FSL, FSL.B) unveiled two low-cost i.MX Lite Kits at the inaugural Freescale Technology Forum in Orlando, Florida. Software and hardware developers now have a quick and cost-effective method to evaluate and develop with the i.MXL or i.MX21 applications processors.

For only $499, the small form factor i.MX Lite Kits, based on ARM® core technology, provide functionality that is a lighter version of the full-scale i.MX application development system. The kits include:

* i.MXL or i.MX21 small 1.75” x 2.5” form factor standalone board
* 4" x 4" common expansion board from Cogent Computer Systems
* MicroMonitor boot ROM Board Support Package
* GX-Linux™ Standard Platform
* i.MX GNU X-Tools™ development tool suite from Microcross, Inc.

“Going wireless is an attractive proposition to many companies with embedded solutions,” said Berardino Baratta, director of wireless strategy office for Freescale. “In 2003, there were over 3.5 billion 8-bit controllers shipped and customers are seeing the need to migrate to a 32-bit implementation. This makes the i.MX Lite Kits a natural first choice to use for evaluating 32-bit technology.”

The entry-level board with Macraigor Systems USB 1.1 Wiggler™ connection serves as an evaluation tool for OEMs, hardware and software developers and tools vendors. With little out of pocket expense, OEMs can quickly and cost-effectively evaluate the technical merits of the i.MXL and i.MX21 processors. Third-party tool companies can do porting and testing inexpensively, while independent software developers can create new applications and OS and RTOS ports.

The expansion board is equipped with a touch-screen LCD display, a compact flash expansion slot, a low-power 10Mbit Ethernet controller, an audio codec, USB host and device connectors, and a 20-pin JTAG header. This board allows developers to perform more robust development and rigorous testing beyond the capabilities of the baseboard, including full-scale debug. Designed as a modular board set, the common expansion board provides complete flexibility.

The i.MX Lite Kits are expected to be available in the third quarter 2005 and can be purchased direct from Freescale for $499 USD.
