The NXP analog product development boards provide an easy-to-use platform for evaluating NXP products. The boards support a range of analog, mixed-signal and power solutions. They incorporate monolithic integrated circuits and system-in-package devices that use proven high-volume technology. NXP products offer longer battery life, a smaller form factor, reduced component counts, lower cost and improved performance in powering state-of-the-art systems.
This page will guide you through learning about how to set up the KITFS85AEEVM board.
Working with the KITFS85AEEVM requires the kit contents, additional hardware and a Windows PC workstation with installed software.
In addition to the kit contents, the following hardware is necessary or beneficial when working with this kit.
(maximum current consumption can be up to 10.0 A)
This evaluation board requires a Windows PC workstation. Meeting these minimum specifications should produce great results when working with this evaluation board.
Installing software is necessary to work with this evaluation board. All listed software is available on the evaluation board's information page under the Tools & Software tab.
To generate Device OTP programming and emulation you will need the following:
Refer to UM11193: KITFS85AEEVM Evaluation Board - User Guide for full evaluation board functionality.
The KITFS85AEEVM provides flexibility to play with all the features of the device and make measurements on the main part of the application. The KL25Z MCU installed on the board, combined with the FlexGUI software allows access to the registers in reading and writing mode. All regulators are accessible through connectors. Nonuser signals, like DC/ DC switcher node, are mapped on test points. Digital signals (SPI, I2C, RSTb, etc.) are accessible through connectors. Wake1 pin has a switch to control (Ignition) them. A VBAT switch is available to power On or Off the device.
The main purpose of this kit is the evaluation of the device in the truck environment which need a nominal voltage of 24V and to sustain up to 60V at Vbat. The KITFS85AEEVM is also able to work in emulation mode and to burn the device when needed. Devices can be programmed three times.

KITFS85AEEVM provides easy customer development of the FS84/FS85 family devices. It's targeting 24V Truck applications. This KIT can be connected to the FlexGUI software which allows the customer to modify the registers, develop an OTP Configuration (one Time Programming) configuration and burn it when ready. The FS85 on the board has not been programmed, offering the customer the flexibility to configure the OTP for his application needs. The OTP can be burned 3 times, which gives good flexibility. The board contain a superset device (MC33FS8530AE0S), allowing tests on all the FS84/FS85 derivatives.
Board block diagram, jumpers, test points, connectors, switches, OTP device configurations and additional board descriptions/images are available in the User Guide. Refer to KITFS85AEEVM evaluation board - User Guide].
This section summarizes the overall setup. Detail description is provided in the user guide.
Suggested equipment’s needed for test:
It is recommended to learn about OTP before operating with the device. The device has a high level of flexibility due to parameter configuration available in the OTP. This impacts the functionality of the device. It is key to understand how OTP parameters can be programmed, the interaction with mirror registers and the FS85 SoC. The OTP related operations can be performed either in Emulation mode, where the product uses a given configuration as long as power supply is not switched Off or from OTP fuse content that is valid even after a power down/power up sequence.
To configure the hardware and workstation as illustrated in Figure 18, complete the following procedure:
Table Jumper configuration
|J24||connect 1-2 (connect 5.0 V on DBG pin from the USB)|
Table Switch configuration
|SW1||middle position (VBAT off)|
|SW3||open (OTP programming off)|
Note: At this step, the product is in debug mode and all regulators are turned off. The user can then power up with OTP configuration or configure the mirror registers before power up. Power up is effective as soon as the J24 jumper is removed. The user can load the mirror registers to work in OTP emulation. See Section 7.2.3 "Script editor" of the UM11193 user guide
Detailed configuration, OTP device programming modes, closing the initialization phase and images are available in the User Guide. Refer UM11193: KITFS85AEEVMEvaluation Board - User Guide
Download and run latest FlexGUI SW for the KITFS85AEEVM
FlexGUI is based on Java JRE. Install Java JRE, and then unzip the FlexGUI software package on your computer.
The FlexGUI software does not require any installation. Unzip the folder contents and launch the .bat file.
The image below shows the mode selection. At first launch, the FlexGUI starts in User mode. The user can then decide to switch to Test mode using the Switch mode drop-down list.
Now start embedded application development.
The overview tab provides an overview of the device, product features, a description of the kit contents, a list of (and links to) supported devices, list of (and links to) any related products and a Get Started section.
