Evaluation Kits Available For ARM Cortex-M3 Processors

Luminary Micro and Keil have joined to create the Stellaris LM3S811 Evaluation Kit for Luminary Micro's Stellaris family of ARM Cortex-M3 processor-based controllers. The kit is both an evaluation platform for the Stellaris LM3S811 and a serial in-circuit debug interface for any Stellaris microcontroller-based target board, covering the design gamut from evaluation to prototyping to application-specific design. Also included is an evaluation copy of the ARM RealView Microcontroller Development Kit software tools on a CD packed with datasheets, schematics, application notes, and programming examples. The board is powered over a USB cable (included), and also contains silk-screened through-hole-mount pin headers that can be user populated with pin stake headers for use in hardware prototyping. Using a standard 20-pin ARM JTAG debug cable (also included), the kit can be used as a serial in-circuit debug interface for the user's application-specific target board. The RealView Microcontroller Development Kit is distributed by Keil (www.keil.com/distis/). The Stellaris microcontroller development and evaluation kits are available through Luminary Micro (www.luminarymicro.com/sales).
