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

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

In addition to enabling access to the richfeatures of the latest Stellaris microcontroller family members – includingsimultaneous interfaces for Ethernet MAC/PHY, USB On-The-Go, and Controller AreaNetwork – the DK-LM3S9B96 adds several features that enhances the overall userexperience, such as an integrated 3.5-inch color QVGA LCD graphics display witha resistive touch interface, a thumbwheel potentiometer (for menu navigation), aMicroSD card slot, 1 MB of serial Flash memory, precision 3V analog referencevoltage, 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 newversatile External Peripheral Interface with an 8 MB SDRAM memory moduleattachment and the new Integrated Interchip Sound (I2S) Interface with anexternal audio codec and interface supporting line in/out, microphone in, andheadphone out. Software tools suite choices included in the kit includeevaluation versions of ARM RealView® Microcontroller Development kit (MDK), IAREmbedded Workbench® Kickstart Edition, Code Red Technologies Red Suite™, andCodeSourcery Sourcery G++™ GNU tools.
