element14 announces the launch of Analog Devices EVAL-ADICUP360 Evaluation Board. The EVAL-ADICUP360 evaluation board is reported to be a part of comprehensive ecosystem which includes open source development tools, software examples, and hardware modules. The hardware has an Arduino/ PMOD form factor for easy plug and play functionality and rapid prototyping with ADI or third party shields.
Key features include:
- ARM Cortex M3 Analog microcontroller
- Dual integrated 3.9kSPS 24bit Data Acquisition/Sigma-delta ADC
- Up to 12 multiplexed analog input channels
- No External Debugger/Emulator tools needed
- Open Source, free, Eclipse-based Interactive Development Environment (IDE)
- Compatible with Arduino and PMOD add-on modules
- Low power
The evaluation board is made up of two major building blocks: a fully integrated, 3.9 kSPS, 24-bit data acquisition system that incorporates dual high performance, multichannel sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs); a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 processor; and Flash/EE memory, realised on a single chip ADuCM360 microcontroller. The ADuCM360 is designed for direct interfacing to external precision sensors in both wired and battery-powered applications.
- Industrial automation and process control
- Intelligent precision sensing systems
- 4 mA to 20 mA loop-powered smart sensor systems
- Medical devices, patient monitoring
An on-board SWD interface, based on the OpenSDA platform allowing the use of a free Software Development Tool Chain to program and debugs the ADuCM360 microcontroller device. The ADuCM360 IDE offers designers an easy to use development tool with no code-size limitations.
