Freescale KEA Series 32-bit MCU

Table of contents

Introduction
TRK-KEA128StarterTRAK is a low-cost development kit based on Kinetis EA series MCUs that enables rapid prototyping and tool reuse.
The TRK-KEA128TRK-KEA128 development platform is built on Kinetis EA series 32-bit ARM®-based MCUs and is the most robust of this series featuring 128 KB of Flash and CAN module for body applications. These scalable and low-power devices are supported by a broad enablement ecosystem that includes software drivers, operating systems, example codes and application notes to help you quickly implement your designs.
Note: TRK-KEA128TRK-KEA128 board is not populated to fully support all target applications.

  • Hello Philip Pesses,

     

    Even without the HEX file you can download the lab files and they are on the CD that comes with the kit. My issue is that when I run the code I do not see any of the LEDs lighting up.If I put a delay then they flash once but never come on again.

  • Were you able to get Lab3 working?  It is to initialize the KEA device ADC's to control the voltage on a light sensor.  There is a simple no-programming method by just dragging the .hex file (from Flash folder in Lab3 example s/w) into the TRK board on disk drive.  Once setup you can use your phone's flashlight to test the lab by shining it over the light sensor to get the LED to come on/off.  If you have any further questions about it let me know.

  • Have any of the guys reviewing this gotten lab 3 to work successfully ?
