Hello, 

I have a question. What is the difference between mini-module and daughter card? I was looking into https://www.nxp.com/part/XPC564AKIT176S#/ and https://www.nxp.com/part/MPC564AKIT176#/ development kits. 

Their mother board is the same but one of them is with mini-module, the other is with daughter card. 

Which abilities differ in these 2 kits? What is the difference? 

Thanks in advance..

Hello,

For basic development I recommend XPC board.

But if you need in field trimming then you should pick up MPC one with vertical connector:

So what is the main difference between XPC564AADPT176S daughter card and MPC564AADPT176 mini-module? Which abilities differ from one to one? 

Is the replacable MCU only difference? Is there any other difference?

Both can be used with Mother board.

But MPC one is equipped with vertical connector for calibration purposes.

Best regards,

Peter
