TI Launches Tiva C Series TM4C123G USB+CAN Development Kit for ARM Cortex-M4 Microcontroller Development
Sep 03, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Texas Instruments Inc. announced that it has introduced the new Tiva C Series TM4C123G USB+CAN Development Kit.
According to a release, featuring a Tiva C Series MCU with ARM Cortex- M4 core that integrates connectivity and sensor aggregation solutions, this kit enables designers to evaluate the Tiva C Series TM4C123x MCU's peripherals and inputs/outputs (I/Os) for industrial, motion control, automation, human machine interface (HMI), lighting and consumer electronics applications.
The development kit includes everything a designer needs for a full system evaluation host and device USB cables, on-board debug interface, and a coin cell battery for low-power hibernation mode. Accompanying the kit is an 8 GB USB drive that contains all the software, development environment tools and documents needed to create production software and evaluate USB OTG and CAN. The included wireless evaluation module headers provide a way to add TI wireless connectivity, including ZigBee CC2538EMK, ZigBee CC2530EMK, SimpleLink Sub-1GHz CC1200EMK, Bluetooth Dual-Mode CC256xQFNEM and SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3000EM, as well as third-party wireless connectivity, to a system.
The company noted that Tiva C Series TM4C123G USB+CAN development kit features and benefits:
-Includes a Tiva C Series TM4C123G MCU with 256KB internal Flash and 144-LQFP with105 GPIOs for prototyping capabilities
-Supports mixed-signal applications with high-performance analog integration with temperature sensor, LED, CAN transceiver and precision 3.0-V reference for accurate analog-to-digital conversion
-Provides 5 mm screw terminals for external analog inputs and CAN signals.
-Incorporates USB micro-AB and microSD card slot for prototyping USB on-the-go applications and data storage
-Communicates with on-chip connectivity options, including USB 2.0 (host, device and on-the-go) interface and CAN transceiver
-Integrates useful output and interface options with a 96x64 color OLED display and five user navigation buttons
-Supports motion and position tracking with 9-axis motion sensor that includes a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis magnetometer
-Allows standard debug interface and debug out capability with minor modifications using a 10-pin JTAG header
-Enables development with a USB flash drive containing all the tools and documents for developing production software:
-TivaWare for C Series firmware development package with example source code
-TI's Eclipse-based Code Composer Studio IDE
-Keil RealView Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK-ARM)
-IAR Embedded Workbench development tools
-Sourcery CodeBench development tools
