Premier Farnell extends its ARM relationship with Cortex-M processor-based STM32 series development kits
Available as standalone evaluation boards or kits. The deal will see the kits shipped with Keil MDK-Lite development tools and the ULINK-ME debug adapter. This follows the announcement of a franchise agreement with ARM in the Americas earlier this year. Developers will benefit from support by Premier Farnell’s ARM trained engineers, the element14 ARM development tools group and rich technical content, video support materials, and design examples on the Knode on element14. The new development kits will also be centre stage in element14’s benchmark RoadTest Group where design engineers test and review new products, posting their results and findings on the element14 Community.
The Cortex-M3 processor-based STM32F2xx and the Cortex-M4 processor-based STM32F4xx devices featured on the boards have the flexibility to reduce power consumption in applications requiring both high processing power and low-power performance when running at low voltage or on rechargeable batteries.
“With the addition of these 2 new development kits we are extending the breadth and depth of our choice, offering and leadership in ARM processor-based design,” David Shen, Chief Technology Officer at Premier Farnell. “The STM32F2xx/F4xx family of Cortex-M series processor-based MCUs already offer industry leading performance, and we are matching that leadership with the provision of complementary design software, debug solutions, RTOS, technical support and access to the unique content from element14’s global community of 100,000 design engineers.”
