DSP Development Boards for Students

The ARM University Program recommends the following development boards for students learning Digital Signal Processing (DSP):


The STM32F4DISCOVERY helps you to discover the STM32F4 high-performance features and to develop your applications easily. It includes everything required for beginners and experienced users to get started quickly.

Based on the STM32F407VGT6, it includes an ST-LINK/V2 embedded debug tool, two ST MEMS, digital accelerometer and digital microphone, one audio DAC with integrated class D speaker driver, LEDs and push buttons and an USB OTG micro-AB connector.




An ultra-low-cost, all-in-one development tool for evaluating, developing and debugging Kinetis MCUs features the K40X256VLQ100 (144LQFP) MCU with USB, touch-sensing and segment LCD functionality. It comes pre-flashed with demonstration software to exercise a small portion of the capabilities of the Kinetis K40X256 device and the KwikStik hardware. The on-board Segger™ J-Link™ debug interface allows the user to evaluate the features of the on-board K40 MCU or to develop, debug and program their own target hardware based on any Kinetis MCU.



The Tiva C Series LaunchPad includes everything you need to get started with ARM Cortex-M4 development!

  • Tiva C Series TM4C LaunchPad Evaluation Board (EK-TM4C123GXL)
  • On-board In-Circuit Debug Interface (ICDI)
  • USB Micro-B plug to USB-A plug cable
  • README First document
  • Free TM4C123GXL TivaWare® for C Series downloads

ARM Cortex-M4 based Microcontroller
The Tiva C Series TM4C123GH6PM microcontroller offers an 80-MHz, 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 CPU with floating point, 256 Kbytes of 100,000 write-erase cycle FLASH, and many peripherals such as MC PWMs, 1-MSPS ADCs, eight UARTs, four SPIs, four I2Cs, USB Host|Device, and up to 27 timers, some configurable up to 64 bits.



Keil offers starter kits based on the ARM Cortex-M-based microcontrollers. These kits include an evaluation board, a Keil ULINK-ME USB-JTAG interface, as well as the MDK-ARM software tools.
