The KITMPC5744DBEVM evaluation board is populated with a MPC5744P, which is a second generation of safety oriented microcontrollers from the MCU family. The KITMPC5744DBEVM is a daughter board that extends the KIT33908MBEVBE kit to evaluate the MC33908 System Basis chip. Together, these two kits create a platform that forms a base for a Safety Ecosystem, which can reach the highest level in functional safety as defined by the ISO26262.
The daughter board includes the MCU and external components necessary for its basic operation as the decoupling capacitors, crystal oscillator, reset circuitry, LED indicators, etc. Power supply and intelligent power management including enhanced safety features is provided to the daughter board from the mother board. Due to this, the daughter board cannot operate separately and it has to be plugged on the mother board (using four 80-pin connectors).
The daughter board is delivered with a demo software already loaded in the Flash memory of the MPC5744P. This code provides algorithms and procedures necessary to initialize and operate the MC33908 correctly.
