Texas Instruments introduced the Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad evaluation kit. The TI Stellaris LaunchPad helps engineers, hobbyists and students explore ARM Cortex-M4F microcontrollers and TI’s Stellaris family of microcontrollers. In addition, the functionality of the Stellaris LaunchPad can be expanded with BoosterPacks. The Stellaris EK-LM4F120XL LaunchPad evaluation kit is available now for the promotional price of $4.99.
Texas Instruments announced the C2000 LaunchPad, which is an evaluation kit based on the Piccolo 32-bit TMS320F2802x microcontroller. C2000 LaunchPad is a modular, quick-launch evaluation kit that contains everything needed (device, emulation and software) for developers, hobbyists and university students to explore the latest real-time control techniques for applications like digital motor control, lighting and power conversion. The new C2000 LaunchPad (LAUNCHXL-F28027) is available for order now. It is priced at $17.
Texas Instruments announced the Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack, which is based on the C5000 ultra-low-power digital signal processor (DSP). The C5000 ultra-low-power DSP-based Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack is a plug-in board for the MSP430 LaunchPad development kit. The TI Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack is available now for a one-time promotional price of $30 USD for the next 30 days (normally priced at $34.99).
Texas Instruments (TI) launched their open source MSP430 MCU Value Line LaunchPad development kit. The LaunchPad kit includes the hardware and software needed to create designs based on TI’s MSP430 Value Line MCUs. LaunchPad supports rapid prototyping and development by enabling developers to quickly drop-in MSP430 Value Line MCUs to evaluate, program or debug devices. The new MSP430 MCU Value Line LaunchPad development kit (MSP-EXP430G2) is priced at $4.30. TI’s MSP430 Value Line MCUs start at 25 cents and offer up to 10X performance and 10X battery life over 8-bit MCUs.
