London, U.K. – Parnell’s element14 has added Keil’s STM32 Fx evaluation boards for applications development to its line of tools available to embedded systems designers.
The STM32 Fx series of ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processor-based devices featured on the boards have the flexibility to reduce power consumption in applications requiring both high processing power and low-power performance when running at low voltage or on rechargeable batteries.
The MCBSTM32F200 MCBSTM32F200 board features superset of STM32F207x series STM32F207IG STM32F207IG ARM Cortex-M3 processor-based microcontroller which offers 1MB Flash and 128KB RAM on-chip memory, and the MCBSTM32F400 MCBSTM32F400 features superset of STM32F407x series an STM32F407IG STM32F407IG Cortex-M4 processor-based microcontroller with 1MB Flash and 192KB RAM on-chip memory.
In addition, both evaluation boards are populated with 8MB NOR Flash, 512MB NAND Flash, 2MB SRAM, and 8KB I2C EEPROM with an NFC interface. They provide a color QVGA LCD and interfaces for SD Card, CAN, 10/100 Ethernet and Full/High speed USB.
The boards also feature a 3-axis digital Accelerometer, a 3-axis digital Gyroscope, a digital microphone, and a digital VGA camera. They also feature a dedicated audio PLL and two full duplex I2S.
The kits have up to 15 communication interfaces (including six USARTs running up to 10.5 Mbits/s, three SPI running up to 42 Mbits/s, three I2C, two CAN, SDIO). Analogue functions include two 12-bit DACs, three 12-bit ADCs reaching 2.4 MSPS or 7.2 MSPS in interleaved mode.
The MCBSTM32F200/400 has up to 17 timers, 16-bit and 32-bit running up to 120/168 MHz. The MCBSTM32F200/400 boards contain all the hardware components required in a single-chip STM32Fx system.
The MCBSTM32F200 and MCBSTM32F400 is available as a standalone evaluation board or as a starter kit which includes Keil MDK ARM Lite Development Tool and a ULINK-ME Debug Adapter. To learn more, go to http://us.element14.com/.
