Luminary Micro and IAR Systems Announce Stellaris® Evaluation Kits Featuring Integrated 10/100 Ethernet and CAN with IAR Embedded Workbench™ KickStart

IAR Systems Among First to Support 27 Newly Announced Integrated Communications Stellaris MCUs

Texas, (PresseBox) - Luminary Micro (www.luminarymicro.com), creators of the award-winning Stellaris® Cortex™-M3-based microcontrollers, and IAR Systems, a world-leading provider of embedded tools, announced today the immediate availability of two Stellaris Evaluation Kits paired with the IAR Embedded Workbench KickStart Edition software development tools.

Designed for the new class of Stellaris integrated communication MCUs, these compact and versatile evaluation kits take advantage of the capabilities of the new Stellaris microcontrollers with more memory, more GPIOs, enhanced power management, and the addition of integrated 10/100 Ethernet MAC and PHY communications and integrated CAN communications.

The IAR Embedded Workbench is a powerful set of essential build and debug tools for embedded projects using both C and C++. The KickStart Edition allows projects of up to 32KB code size, enabling users to seriously evaluate the performance and capabilities of the Stellaris LM3S2965 and LM3S6965 microcontrollers.

“The KickStart Edition of IAR’s Embedded Workbench—with its generous 32KB evaluation limit for code—combined with Luminary Micro’s versatile and popular hardware evaluation boards provides a powerful platform for users to put the kit to full use doing real work,” said Luminary Micro Chief Marketing Officer Jean Anne Booth.

Stellaris LM3S6965: Fully Integrated 10/100 Embedded Ethernet
The EKI-LM3S6965 features fully integrated 10/100 Ethernet capability and includes two examples of an embedded web-server demonstration application. The quickstart application that runs out-of-the-box includes an embedded web server utilizing the open source lwIP Ethernet stack. The kit also contains a web server application with FreeRTOS.org™ RTOS and the open source uIP Ethernet stack. Each Stellaris LM3S6965 Ethernet Evaluation Kit contains:

- KickStart Edition of IAR Embedded Workbench tools supporting up to 32KB code size
- IAR PowerPac™ RTOS evaluation version with file system and USB device stack
- Stellaris CD packed with datasheets, schematics, applications notes, and programming examples

Stellaris LM3S2965: A Fully Operable “CAN Network in a box”
The EKI-LM3S2965 features integrated CAN (Controller Area Network) and includes a separate Stellaris LM3S2110-based CAN device board, providing an example fully functioning CAN network out of the box. Each Stellaris LM3S2965 Evaluation Kit contains:
- EVB-LM3S2965 Evaluation Board with 50MHz LM3S2965 MCU (fully integrated CAN controller, 256K flash, 64K SRAM)
- EVB-LM3S2110 Evaluation Board with 25MHz LM3S2110 (fully integrated CAN controller, 64K flash, 16K SRAM)
- 128 x 64 pixel monochromatic OLED graphics display
- User LED, navigation switches, and select push buttons
- Magnetic speaker
- All Stellaris MCU I/O available on labeled breakout pads
- USB cable (power and debug) for simple set-up
- CAN network cable to connect the two boards
- Standard ARM® 20-pin JTAG debug connector with input and output modes
- Stellaris Peripheral Driver Library, which provides a convenient, no-hassle method of initializing, programming, and controlling peripherals on Stellaris microcontrollers
- KickStart Edition of IAR Embedded Workbench tools supporting up to 32KB code size
- IAR PowerPac™ RTOS evaluation version with file system and USB device stack
- Stellaris CD packed with datasheets, schematics, applications notes, and programming examples
