The PK-HCS12E128 Starter Kit has been designed for the evaluation of the MC9S12E128 microcontroller and the debugging of small user applications. The Starter Kit takes advantage of the Metrowerks CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment (which groups an Editor, Assembler, C Compiler and Debugger) and the Motorola BDM interface, which allows the download and debug of the user application into the microcontroller FLASH memory. Together with CodeWarrior, the Starter Kit provides you with everything you need to write, compile, download, in-circuit emulate and debug user code. Full-speed program execution allows you to perform hardware and software testing in real time. The Starter Kit is connected to the host PC through a USB port. A prototyping area allows you to wire your own small application.

Board Features

Board Features
The PK-HCS12E128 board has the following hardware features:
A MCU section. It contains a soldered, 112-pin MC9S12E128 device (in QFP package) with connectors to access the I/O pins of the microcontroller for expansion prototyping. A 16 MHz crystal oscillator (in Colpitts configuration) is provided, and the microcontroller is configured to work in single-chip mode (MODA = MODB = 0).
A Demo section. It features a RESET push-button, two user push-buttons, a potentiometer and eight user LEDs, plus a LED connected to a DAC output pin.
A USB to BDM Interface section. It contains the circuitry needed to electrically and logically translate BDM-like commands sent by the host PC through the USB cable to the BDM interface of the microcontroller. The PK-HCS12E128 board is powered (at 5 V) by the USB bus.
A Prototype section. You can wire your own circuit here. The prototype section features both a standard, thru-hole area (for mounting traditional components) and a SMD area (for soldering SMD components in SOIC package).
