Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad Evaluation Board
« on: September 19, 2012, 12:24:56 PM »
The Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad Evaluation Board is a low-cost evaluation platform for ARM? Cortex?-M4F-based microcontrollers from Texas Instruments. The design of the Stellaris LaunchPad highlights the LM4F120H5QR microcontroller with a USB 2.0 device interface and hibernation module.

The EK-LM4F120XL also features programmable user buttons and an RGB LED for custom applications. The stackable headers of the Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad BoosterPack XL Interface make it easy and simple to expand the functionality of the Stellaris LaunchPad when interfacing to other peripherals with on compatible BoosterPacks.

Yup, not going to ship for a couple of weeks, though.

Dave, I brought my TI launchpad radio kits to the last micro monday, but didn't get around to playing with them.  Let me know if you want to try some wireless stuff at the next MM. 8)

On topic, it looks like a nice part.  Some of the features of the chip itself include a USB controller, a CAN controller, 8 (!) UARTs, 4 SSI modules (can be used for SPI), 4 I2C modules, 2 12-bit ADCs with 12 inputs (MUXed), 12 hardware timers, tons of GPIO, the list goes on and on.  $4.40 in 1K quantities.

Maybe we can use this for the FamiROCKET data acquisition!
