NXPhlite prototype FMU

Please note that this document is being heavily edited and is draft. It may be moved into separate gitbooks for final release.

The NXPhlite is an experimental board that is compliant with DroneCode.org and PX4.io software. It runs NUTTX RTOS on top of a 180MHz, 2MB Flash NXP Kinetis K66 microcontroller.

In addition, it uses NXP automotive sensors, automotive CAN bus transceivers, as well as the new two wire automotive 100Base-T1 Ethernet transceiver TJA110x.
