Kit Overview

 

The Stellaris LM3S8962 Evaluation Board is a compact and versatile evaluation platform for the Stellaris LM3S8962Stellaris LM3S8962 ARM® Cortex™-M3-based microcontroller. The evaluation kit design highlights the LM3S8962 microcontroller's integrated CAN and 10/100 Ethernet controllers. You can use the EVB either as an evaluation platform or as a low-cost in-circuit debug interface (ICDI). In debug interface mode, the on-board microcontroller is bypassed, allowing connection of the debug signals to an external Stellaris microcontroller target. The kit is also compatible with high-performance external JTAG debuggers.

 

This evaluation kit enables quick evaluation, prototype development, and creation of application-specific designs for Ethernet and CAN networks. The kit also includes extensive source-code examples, allowing you to start building C code applications quickly. The kit also includes extensive source code examples, allowing you to start building C code applications quickly. Several versions of the Kit are available:

Kit Features


EKS-LM3S8962_2.PNG

 

The main evaluation board (EVB) is the CAN host. A small CAN device board, linked with a ribbon cable, uses a Stellaris LM3S2110-IQC25LM3S2110-IQC25 microcontroller. The function of each board is fully configurable in software.

 

You can use the EVB either as an evaluation platform or as a low-cost in-circuit debug interface (ICDI). In debug interface mode, the on-board microcontroller is disabled, allowing connection of the debug signals to an external target. The kit is also compatible with high-performance external JTAG debuggers.

 

This evaluation kit enables quick evaluation, prototype development, and creation of application-specific designs for Ethernet networks. The kit also includes extensive source-code examples, allowing you to start building C code applications quickly. The evaluation kit includes the following features:

 

  • Stellaris LM3S8962 microcontroller with fully-integrated 10/100 embedded Ethernet controller and CAN MAC
  • Simple setup: USB cable provides serial communication, debugging, and power
  • OLED graphics display
  • User LED, navigation switches, and select pushbuttons
  • Magnetic speaker
  • MicroSD card slot
  • USB interface for debugging and power supply
  • Standard ARM® 20-pin JTAG debug connector with input and output modes
  • LM3S8962 I/O available on labeled break-out pads
