KL25Z Freescale Freedom Plastic EnclosureCLEVELAND, Ohio—February 28, 2013—Bud Industries continues its focus on developing plastic enclosures for popular programming boards by introducing its new FBB-3665 enclosure designed for the Model KL25Z Freescale Freedom Development Platform. Watch a video demonstration of the Bud FBB-3665 enclosure at www.budind.com/new-freedom-platform-enclosure.php.

Bud's new enclosure is friendly to a prototyping environment while providing protection and functionality. The development board slips into place, secured in the enclosure by a snug fit rather than by potentially damaging hardware. The enclosure has an easily removable top so the board can be extracted without disassembling cables. Cutouts in the FBB Series enclosure's front panel allow for easy connection to the board's two USB ports and provide access to the reset button. The rear panel has round knock-out plugs that can accommodate Bud's optional NG9511 miniature cable gland or be used for ventilation. The enclosure has a side slot on each side to accommodate flat cables from both I/O header banks and to provide additional ventilation.

The FBB-3665 enclosure has four pieces—top, bottom, front and rear panels—which can be rapidly assembled. What's more, the rubber feet included with the development board can be removed and attached to the bottom of the enclosure, covering up the screw holes and creating a stable working position. External dimensions are 3.62 x 2.6 0x 1.10 inches.

The low-cost Freedom Development Platform is designed for developers working with Freescale's Kinetis microcontrollers. It is capable of working with other development boards such as the Arduino Uno and microcomputers computers such as the Raspberry Pi. Bud introduced enclosures for the Raspberry Pi in 2012.

The FBB-3665 enclosure is in stock and available from distribution with a suggested selling price of $9.80. For more information on Bud's inventory of plastic enclosures, visit www.budind.com/view/Plastic+Boxes/FBB-3665+BUD+FREEDOM+BOARD+ENCLOSURE.
