Freescale Combines Vehicle Sensors With #TowerSystem on @designnews

When you must evaluate sensors, you can buy evaluation boards that supply a bare sensor and "raw" signals through complete "systems on a board" that include a microcontroller, signal conditioning circuits, and perhaps a serial or USB port. Many engineers, though, need something in between; a sensor module with enough signal conditioning to provide useful information, and signals an MCU of their choice can work with. Freescale has taken the latter approach with the latest board for the company's Tower System, a set of 8-bit MCU boards and peripheral devices that communicate via "elevator" bus boards. A variety of boards, some from third parties, lets engineers configure an embedded system that closely approximates the hardware envisioned for a final design. Then software development can proceed in parallel along the lines of a final design or a proof-of-concept model. You c...
