The $25 ARM Cortex-M0-based PSoC4 Pioneer
The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is an easy-to-use and inexpensive development platform enabling you to create unique designs with the flexibility of PSoC®4. Featuring the PSoC 4200 device family, this kit gives you the power of an ARM Cortex-M0 combined with the fully customizable analog and digital fabric of the PSoC in the palm of your hands.
Say hello to freeSoC
freeSoC is a revolutionary microcontroller development platform, based around the Cypress PSoC 5LP microcontroller. freeSoC combines the power of an FPGA, the flexibility of a microcontroller, and the convenience of onboard precision analog hardware, enabling you to realize your dreams without spending a fortune and buying a bunch of extra parts.
A drag and drop dream
PSoC Creator, the free graphical IDE for freeSoC, enables you to easily configure your component-level hardware design with the click of a mouse. Want to add an Op-Amp, a PWM, or an analog signal multiplexer? Just drag and drop the component onto the block diagram, and you’re done. Why bother messing around with prototyping wire and breadboards, when you can do it all with a few clicks of the mouse?
Any pin, any purpose
With freeSoC, you can use any GPIO pin for any function. Need 16 SPI controllers? No Problem. 24 PWMs? freeSoC has you covered. How many other microcontrollers on the market can act as a 32 channel analog multiplexer?
PSoC® 5 is a true programmable embedded system-on-chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory and a microcontroller on a single chip. The breakthrough new PSoC 5 architecture boosts performance through integrated high-precision 20-bit resolution analog, programmable PLD-based logic, and the 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M3 CPU up to 67 MHz.
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.
