IAR KickStart Kit, RM48 MCU
IAR Systems releases complete starter kit for Texas Instruments Hercules safety device
News Release from:
18 January 2012
IAR Systems today announces that the IAR KickStart Kit for Texas Instruments Hercules RM48 MCU is released and available for order. The Hercules safety microcontroller platform from Texas Instruments (TI) has built-in hardware safety features, making it suitable for development of systems with high requirements on functional safety, for example within medical, industrial, and transportation applications areas.
The Hercules safety platform consists of three ARM® Cortex™-based microcontroller families: TMS470M, TMS570 and RM4x. The RM4x family provides the highest performance, and is based on ARM
IAR KickStart Kit for TI Hercules RM48 is the first ARM Cortex-R4F kit from IAR Systems, making it a valuable addition to the large number of IAR KickStart Kit packages available for several different architectures from a wide array of semiconductor manufacturers.
This is a bundled kit, including a full-featured TI Hercules TMDXRM48HDK kit and an IAR J-Link Lite debug probe, which enables fast and stable debugging with advanced debug features offered by IAR Embedded Workbench. Also included in the kit are software tools and example applications from IAR Systems and Texas Instruments, supplying all the software and hardware necessary to design, develop, integrate, and test applications.
