CHICAGO, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Newark element14, the leading distributor of electronic components and engineering solutions in the Americas and a business of Premier Farnell (LSE:pfl), today announced the availability of Freescale's new cost-effective TWR-S08DC-PT60 demo board featuring the rugged 5V MC9S08PT60 microcontroller, which combines exceptional EMC/ESD performance with integrated touch sensing and EEPROM.


While designed as a stand-alone daughter card, it can also access the Full Tower ecosystem when used in conjunction with the TWR-S08UNIV mother board.

The tool allows for quick and cost-effective product evaluation and application development of the MC9S08P MCU family. An integrated OSBDM enables a designer to communicate with the board and target device with only a USB cable, and the board highlights the MCU's touch sensing and motor control features.

Uniquely, this board is also available by registering for a RoadTest trial at the element14 engineering community. Reviews of many of the latest dev kits can also be found in this section.
