EVALBOT

Learning about ARM Cortex-M3 MCUs, real-time operating systems and a variety of tools is fun with the EVALBOT from Texas Instruments

Image of Texas Instruments' EVALBOTWith Texas Instruments' little robotic evaluation kit, designers can experience the Stellaris® ARM® Cortex™-M3-based LM3S9B92 MCU in real-world applications that leverage the processor´s integrated 10/100 Ethernet MAC/PHY, USB On-The-Go, CAN, and motion control capabilities. 

For this version of the EVALBOT, the quickstart application provides out-of-the-box action and can be used along with other included examples as a foundation for seriously fun learning. The examples are based on the included, extensive StellarisWare® library and can be modified to meet new challenges using one of the evaluation versions of the integrated development tools listed in the product part table.
