Development Boards

Development Boards Image
ARM 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

For development with standard (off-the-shelf) ARM-based microcontroller parts, Keil offers a large range of evaluation boards with Cortex-M3, ARM7 and ARM9 support.


 

  The Versatile™ Express product family of development boards provides the right environment for prototyping and evaluating the next generation of system-on-chip designs. 
 Keil M3 eval board Keil evaluation boards and starter kits help you evaluate the Cortex-M, ARM7 and ARM9 MCU architectures and get started with the Keil development tools.
mbed The mbed Microcontrollers are a series of microcontrollers development boards designed for fast, flexible and low-risk and professional rapid prototyping.


 

  Tux and Android

Distributions of ARM Embedded Linux (AEL) and instructions for porting Android™ are available for the Versatile™ and Versatile Express product families. Please refer to our Linux Support page for download links.

These OS ports allow you to quickly develop drivers for a new peripheral in an FPGA, or benchmark a new processor core with real software.
