Luminary Micro Demonstrates its 4th Generation of Stellaris Family Products on a New Stellaris Development Kit Platform


Comprehensive Stellaris DK-LM3S9B96 has developers up and running in 10 minutes or less

Introducing the new Stellaris DK-LM3S9B96 Development Kit platform in support of the 4th generation Stellaris microcontrollers launched in March 2009. The new development kit provides users access to all the features of the new Stellaris microcontrollers, including new combinations of connectivity, data efficiency, and advanced motion control.

In addition to enabling access to the rich features of the latest Stellaris microcontroller family members - including simultaneous interfaces for Ethernet MAC/PHY, USB On-The-Go, and Controller Area Network - the DK-LM3S9B96 adds several features that enhances the overall user experience, such as an integrated 3.5-inch color QVGA LCD graphics display with a resistive touch interface, a thumbwheel potentiometer (for menu navigation), a MicroSD card slot, 1 MB of serial Flash memory, precision 3V analog reference voltage, user LED and pushbutton, and I/O wired to convenient break-out pads. Moreover, the DK-LM3S9B96 takes full advantage of the Stellaris family's new versatile External Peripheral Interface with an 8 MB SDRAM memory module attachment and the new Integrated Interchip Sound (I2S) Interface with an external audio codec and interface supporting line in/out, microphone in, and headphone out. Software tools suite choices included in the kit include evaluation versions of ARM RealView® Microcontroller Development kit (MDK), IAR Embedded Workbench® Kickstart Edition, Code Red Technologies Red Suite(TM), and CodeSourcery Sourcery G++(TM) GNU tools.
