IAR Systems offers a complete starter kit for STMicroelectronics’ ARM Cortex-M3 based high performance STM32 F-2 series. The kit contains all the necessary hardware and software to design embedded software applications, integrated and tested on hardware. It includes a feature-rich evaluation board, software tools, a debug probe, example projects and board support packages for several RTOSes. A high level of integration between hardware, software and tools makes the easy to use for evaluation and prototyping.
The kit is designed for use with IAR Embedded Workbench. The evaluation board is fitted with an STM32F207ZG microcontroller, color LCD, connectors for USB host, USB OTG, Ethernet and CAN, headphone jack, and other peripherals. Debug connectors for ETM trace, SWD and JTAG are also included.
The included IAR J-Link Lite debug probe provides JTAG and SWD debug interfaces. Added debug capabilities can be enabled by separate debug probes. IAR J-Trace enables full instruction trace, and IAR J-Link Ultra enables power debugging features in IAR Embedded Workbench. Both probes are sold separately.
IAR KickStart Kit for STM32F207 is in stock and available in IAR Systems’ e-shop. It is priced at EUR 209/USD 289. Part number is KSK-STM32F207ZG-JL. Details are available at www.iar.com/kits.
