ARM Development Boards

What is a Developemnt Board?

A development board is a printed circuit board with circuitry and hardware designed to facilitate experimentation with a certain micro controller.

Development boards are the ideal platform for accelerating the development and reducing the risk of new SoC designs. The combination of ASIC and FPGA technology in ARM boards delivers an optimal solution in terms of speed, accuracy, flexibility and cost.

ARM development boards are often used to:

  • Evaluate, benchmark and start software development on the latest ARM processors
  • Prototype, validate and develop software drivers for new SoC IP blocks - for example, a modem or video engine
  • Test custom logic blocks or system IP in an FPGA, connected to an ARM core running at ASIC speed

Cortex-M Series

The ARM Cortex™-M processor family is an upwards compatible range of energy-efficient, easy to use processors designed to help developers meet the needs of tomorrow's embedded applications. Those demands include delivering more features at a lower cost, increasing connectivity, better code reuse and improved energy efficiency.

The Cortex-M family is optimized for cost and power sensitive MCU and mixed-signal devices for end applications such as smart metering, human interface devices, automotive and industrial control systems, white goods, consumer products and medical instrumentation.
