NXP® Freedom Sensor Toolbox: Sensor Development Ecosystem


Overview

The new Freedom Sensor Toolbox is your complete ecosystem for each phase of your product development with NXP® sensors.

  • Demonstration enabled by NXP Freedom Sensor Toolbox – Community Edition (CE) and Demonstration Kits for an ‘out of box’ experience.
  • Evaluation of sensor capabilities using Sensor Shield Development boards with compatible Freedom MCU boards, enabled by Intelligent Sensing Framework (ISF) and the STB CE.
  • Development of your sensor applications using any Kinetis® MCU with ISF.
  • Prototype your products using the breakout boards.

Out of Box Demo - Sensor Data output in just 3 steps:

  • Start by Downloading the NXP Freedom Sensor toolbox – CE (STB CE) software:
  • Connect any NXP Sensor Demonstration Kit to your PC via USB cable.
  • Click on the Freedom Sensor Toolbox – CE icon on your desktop

You are now ALL SET. You will see sensor data demo displayed on your desktop immediately.
