A development board for the configurable xCORE multicore microcontroller products from XMOS
The startKIT is a development board for the configurable xCORE multicore microcontroller products from XMOS. It's easy to use and provides advanced features on a small, extremely-low-cost platform. The startKIT makes it quick and easy to start developing with the configurable xCORE multicore microcontroller technology. The xCORE multicore microcontrollers can be software-configured with a wide variety of peripherals and interface blocks, and programmed in C / C++, all in a single programming environment. The startKIT is just 94 x 50 mm in size and is based around the 500 MIPS, eight 32-bit logical cores, XS1-A8-64-DEV, and an xCORE-Analog multicore microcontroller. The board includes: LEDs, a push-button switch, two capacitive sense sliders, a sliceCARD connector that is compatible with the wide range of I/O slices available from XMOS, and headers that allow connection to a breadboard system. The startKIT is an ideal platform for functions ranging from robotics and motion control to networking and digital audio. The startKIT is supplied with example code including driver software for the LEDs and push-buttons, and a software-defined Ethernet interface and web server application.
