Latest ARM mbed IoT Device Platform at RS

Featured Product from RS Components, Ltd.

mbed OS is free to download at and the Freedom-K64F takes advantage of the latest mbed innovations for low-power, connected and security-conscious development projects.

Supporting the mbed OS on the board enables IoT development engineers to take advantage of the platform principles used in web 2.0 and smartphone app development, including pre-integrated security IP and interfaces supporting a host of key communications standards:

  • Bluetooth®
  • Wi-Fi
  • Smart
  • 6LowPAN
  • GSM
  • Thread low-power wireless mesh networking

As well as mbed OS, the mbed Thread networking stack runs on the on-board K64F microcontroller, which is perfect for smart-home application development.

In addition, mbed supports energy efficient drivers so designers using the Freedom-K64F board can make devices run for longer, even from a limited energy source.

Other features of the board include an Ethernet port, microSD card slot and MEMS accelerometer and magnetometer providing full e-compass functionality.
