ARM Cortex-M1 Development Kit Goes Global

Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) announced the worldwide availability of the ARM Cortex-M1 Development Kit. The kit was previously avialable only in the United States and Europe. The ARM’s Cortex-M1 Development Kit is a combination of technologies for the telecommunications, automotive and transportation, industrial and medical industries where high reliability is a key requirement. The kit provides all the tools and software to enable users to develop an embedded system based on the ARM Cortex-M1 processor and Altera Cyclone III field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

The ARM Cortex-M1 Development Kit offers a targeted solution for the development of ARM embedded systems on Altera Cyclone III FPGAs through the seamless integration of a targeted version of the ARM Cortex-M1 processor within the Altera Quartus II and Altera SOPC environments. The Kit, including the ARM RealView Microcontroller Development Kit, which integrates two industry-leading tools: ARM RealView Compilation Tools and the Keil µVision 3 development environment, provides developers with a feature-rich, integrated development environment optimized for a wide range of ARM processor-based devices.

The Kit includes a quick-start tutorial and example hardware and software design projects, providing users with everything necessary to create an ARM embedded system on FPGA capable of running software kernels and real-time operating systems (RTOS) out-of-the-box, and a framework that may be rapidly tailored to meet their precise design requirements. The ARM Cortex-M1 FPGA Development Kit is designed to be used in conjunction with the Altera Cyclone III Starter Board.
