The IAR KickStart Kit for Fujitsu MB9BF506R from IAR Sytems has been designed specifically for evaluating and prototyping using Fujitsu’s FM3 ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontroller family. The 32-bit MB9BF506R has the most on-chip flash and comprehensive peripheral support of the Fujitsu MB9BF500 series, which offers a range of high-integrated microcontrollers targeted for high-performance, cost-sensitive applications.
The kit includes an MB9BF506R-SK evaluation board, USB host and device connectors and CAN interfaces, a 16 x 2 black and white LCD, audio and motor drive peripherals, and an IAR J-Link onboard debug probe providing SWD debugging together with software development tools.
Included in the kit is a code size limited version of IAR Embedded Workbench, a set of development tools for building and debugging embedded system applications using assembler, C and C++. It provides a completely integrated development environment that includes a project manager, editor, build tools and the C-SPY debugger. Also included is a 20-state evaluation copy of IAR visualSTATE.
By adding an optional IAR J-LINK Ultra probe (sold separately), it is possible to use the power debugging features provided by IAR Embedded Workbench.
IAR KickStart Kit for Fujitsu MB9BF506R is priced at €270 / $349. It can be bought online at www.iar.com/eshop.
