Hello Baisravan,

Yes, they should be pin compatible as any FRDM board. Nevertheless, there is not any code example available interfacing them. I guess you could control the FRDM KW40z using serial commands and transmit whatever you need to.

Please just notice FRM KW40z board is still not available until later this year, so you will not able to purchase it at the moment. Please visit Freescale website in the next few months for any updates.

Regards,

AngelC

Thank you for the response. Is there any freescale board that has wireless connectivity available now?? we are looking for application mobile robotics and hence some addition sensors (which kw40z has) on board would be helpful. Thank you.

Dear Baisravan,

Please take a look at KW2x solutions. They support 802.15.4 and ZigBee implementation in 2.4Ghz band. Nevertheless, none of the evaluation boards available contain an accelerometer or sensors. A FRDM-type board for these devices will be released in Q3 timeframe as well.

Hi,

We are looking for data sharing between two mobile robots and thus how about FRDM 64F (http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=FRDM-K64F) with nRF24L01+ Nordic 2.4GHz Radio module? The FRDM 64F has accelarometers and magnetometers and has RF and bluetooth capability. With the RF communication, communication between other frdm64f boards would be possible. FRDM 64F is available now. Do you think it is a valid solution?

Hello Baisravan,

Please check the board’s pinout specification and verify they are compatible. By default, they all should be pin-compatible, but I am not familiars with the peripherals used by the TFC board and if those will have interference with Arduino board. You could check that by checking the corresponding documentation.

Moreover, I am not familiar with Nordic’s device. All I could see is that is not recommended for new designs. Anyway, at the end, it will all depend in the way you interface them. If there is a way to control the transceiver via Ethernet, SPI, I2C or similar, then yes you could integrate both solutions. Please just keep in mind this is totally application-specific and thus its development is up to the user.

Regards,

AngelC

Thank you for all the help. One last question, we already have frdm kl25z and frdm tfc shield (the freescale cup car). To enable wireless communication we can add arduino wifi shield on it. Do you think adding an arduino wifi shield would be possible with pin compatibility. I have seen projects with  frdm kl25z and arduino wifi shield but not sure if frdm tfc shield is connected to frdm kl25z, we would be able to connect arduino wifi shield to it.
