The Tower System

Tower System

The Freescale Tower System is a modular development platform for 8-, 16- and 32-bit microcontrollers that enables advanced development through rapid prototyping. Featuring multiple development boards or modules, the Tower System provides designers with building blocks for entry-level to advanced microcontroller development.

Interchangeable and reusable modules along with open source design files make it easy to customize your design and reduce low level design giving you more time to focus on differentiated solutions.

Features   Benefits
Small Form Factor
(3.5”H x 3.5” W x 3.5” D when fully assembled)
  Takes small amount of space on desk or work station
     
Controller Modules (8-, 16-, 32-bit)    
Works stand-alone or as part of Tower System   Allows rapid prototyping
Features new Open Source BDM (OSBDM)   Provides easy programming and debugging via mini-B USB cable
     
Elevator Modules    
Two 2x80 connectors   Provides easy signal access and side-mounting board (i.e. LCD module)
Power regulation circuitry   Provides power to all boards
Standardized signal assignments   Allows for customized peripheral module development
Four card-edge connectors available   Allows easy expansion using PCI Express connectors (x16, 90mm/3.5” long, 164 pins)
     
Peripheral Modules    
Can be re-used with all Tower System MCU/MPU modules   Eliminates the need to buy/develop redundant hardware
Interchangeable peripheral modules – Serial, Memory, Graphical LCD, 802.11b WiFi, etc.   Enables advanced development and broad functionality

Modules & Kits

Sold in kits or as individual modules, the expansion of your Tower System from a development tool into a development platform is simple and cost effective.
