I am looking for a Kinetis  development kit that has a touch screen with graphics screen and sound.  Not sure what processor is needed.  This is low cost experiment so I need to keep everything as cheep as possible.

Hi Daniel,

If you look for a QVGA resolution display (Smart display) you can use TWR-LCD with a TWR-K60D100 (for example). If you look for a bigger display a non smart display, you can use TWR-LCD-RGB board, in this case you will need a processor with LCD controller inside. And you need the TWR-ELEV and TWR-SER will be useful.

So, two configurations:

A) TWR-K60D100M-KIT + TWR-LCD

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=TWR-K60D100M&tid=m32TWR

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=TWR-LCD&tid=m32TWR

B) TWR-K70F120M-KIT + TWR-LCD-RGB

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=TWR-K70F120M

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=TWR-LCD-RGB&tid=m32TWR

For audio, for both configurations, TWR-AUDIO-SGTL

http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=TWR-AUDIO-SGTL&tid=m32TWR

You can use MQX RTOS, www.freescale.com/mqx

And one of the graphic libraries, www.freescale.com/eGUI or www.freescale.com/PEG

You have more options or combinations with the Tower system, but this is a good starting point.

Regards,

Luis

What the difference between a smart display and nonsmart display.

Is there some demos we can down load with these kits.

Hi,

A Smart display has the RAM frame buffer and the screen controller integrated, you need to refresh constantly the display.
