miriac™ EK5744

based on NXP‘s MPC5744P MCU

miriac™ EK5744
The miriac™ EK5744 Functional Safety Evaluation Kit is a platform for evaluation, design and prototyping devices It provides a solid base for custom developments und shows how to use the MPC5744P for devices meeting any of the standards IEC 61508/62061 (SIL1 and SIL2), ISO 13849 categories 1 and 2 and performance levels a-d or similar. A concept study for use according to IEC 61508/62061 SIL3 and ISO 13849 Kat.3 for the MPC5744P and PowerSBC is in work.
