Testimonial

University of Cambridge

Dr. Boris Adryan uses the Freescale Lab-in-a-Box to help students at the Cambridge Systems Biology Center understand microcontrollers, with a view to incorporating them into research projects.

 

Development Boards

The FRDM-KL25Z is an ultra-low-cost development platform enabled by Kinetis L Series KL1x and KL2x MCUs families built on ARM® Cortex™-M0+ processor. Features include easy access to MCU I/O, battery-ready, low-power operation, a standard-based form factor with expansion board options and a built-in debug interface for flash programming and run-control. The FRDM-KL25Z is supported by a range of Freescale and third-party development software.

Software Tools

ARM offers the Keil Microcontroller Development Kit (MDK-ARM) for ARM powered microcontrollers. It features the industry-standard compiler from ARM, the Keil µVision IDE, and sophisticated debug and data trace capabilities. MDK-ARM offers tailored support for all Cortex-M, ARM7, and ARM9 processor-based devices, and is the recommended solution for students working with standard ARM-based MCU devices. We suggest that students and universities download the free evaluation version of the tools, which offers all the features of the standard version, but with a 32 KByte object code/data limit.

Development Boards

The BeagleBone is the low-cost, high-expansion hardware-hacker focused BeagleBoard. It is a bare-bones BeagleBoard that acts as a USB or Ethernet connected expansion companion for your current BeagleBoard and BeagleBoard-xM or works stand-alone. The BeagleBone is small even by BeagleBoard standards and with the high-performance ARM capabilities you expect from a BeagleBoard, the BeagleBone brings full-featured Linux to places it has never gone before.

 

The PandaBoard is a low-power, low cost single-board computer based on the Texas Instruments' 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore-based OMAP4430 applications processor.

The PandaBoard features a dual-core 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, a C64x DSP, and 1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM. Primary persistent storage is via an SD Card slot allowing SDHC cards up to 32 GB to be utilized. The PandaBoard includes wired 10/100 Ethernet as well as wireless Ethernet and Bluetooth connectivity. Its size is slightly larger than the ETX/XTX Computer form factor at 4 in (100 mm) by 4.5 in (110 mm). The PandaBoard can output video signals via DVI and HDMI interfaces. It also has stereo 3.5 mm audio connectors.

PandaBoard runs the Linux kernel, with either traditional, Ubuntu, or Android user environments.

Software Tools

ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) is available now for free for qualified universities! DS-5 makes it easy to develop applications for ARM applications processors. It reduces your learning curve, shortens the development and testing cycle, and helps you build reliable applications quickly.
