CorStarter ™ -STM32, ARM Cortex™-M3 C Starter Kit for $99

Postby W4GNS » Tue Sep 24, 2013 9:04 pm

Available October 31st, 2013: ImageCraft’s CorStarter ™ ­STM32  is a complete 32­bit
ARM Cortex™­M3 C Development Kit for $99. It includes all the hardware and software to
develop and debug C programs in a simple to use package.
The CorStarter­STM32 base board, powered by a 72­Mhz STM32 device with 256K flash and
64K SRAM, is more than 20 times faster than 8­bit AVR Arduino boards. With 8­bit Arduino
Shield compatible headers, hundreds of Arduino Shields may be used to expand the capabilities
of the system. Remaining IO pins are brought out to the header, allowing access to the full
power of 32­bit embedded computing. The hardware design files for the CorStarter­STM32 base
board are Open Source.
A choice of either the industrial standard Segger JLINK­Edu or ST­LINK/V2 (for ST devices only)
provides fast code download and hardware debugging support. These JTAG/SWD pods allow
full access to Cortex™­M devices and seamless debugging without source code modification.
To complement the hardware, the Kit also includes an ImageCraft Non­Commercial C compiler
(ICCV8 for Cortex™) license. The C compiler includes a professional IDE with an integrated
flash downloader and source level debugger. The compiler can be used for other Cortex™­M
development projects as well. Finally, the Kit includes example projects and libraries for various
Arduino Shields.
The CorStarter­STM32 base board can be purchased by itself for $45.
A companion college­level embedded system programming textbook will be available in Spring
2014.
For more information, please visit http://corstarter.com, http://imagecraft.com or email

Designed and manufactured in the USA.
