The main purpose of this kit is to program the board and evaluate all the different features of the MC33XS2410 along with a power supply and real loads.
The FRDM-XS2410EVB provides flexibility to interact with all the features of the device and perform measurements on the main part of the application. With compatible pinouts, the FRDM-XS2410EVB can be interfaced to either FRDM-KL25Z MCU or S32K144EVB Freedom boards.
With the FlexGUI software loaded, the evaluation board allows access to the registers in read and write mode, device configuration and monitoring key diagnostics parameters. Power outputs are accessible through connectors, and some of the signal can also be probed using test points. Some LEDs witness the state of the outputs, such as VDD supply or warning/IRQ faults on FAULTB pin.

To configure the hardware, complete the following procedure:
This board can be used either with FlexGUI software for evaluation or with software drivers for development.
All installation details and software flashing on MCU are described UM11301, the dedicated FlexGUI user manual for FRDM-XS2410EVB.
After the FlexGUI application is started with flexgui-app-des-q100, the FlexGUI launcher displays the supported MCU and communication protocols. After the boards are selected, the GUI starts.
At first launch, the FlexGUI starts in user mode.
The bottom left area of the GUI shows three tabs:
Start embedded application development.
