Embedded development hardware kits & boards

Your fastest, simplest track to prototyping

Our cross-compatible portfolio of modular evaluation and development hardware pair perfectly with scalable online and offline software to help you get your products to market faster. From affordable microcontroller hardware development kits (LaunchPads™) to 80+ functional plug-in modules (BoosterPacks™), we have the hardware you need to get your embedded development project off the ground.

Kits for every platform

Our microcontroller-based evaluation modules (LaunchPads) feature built-in emulators for programming & debugging, and start at just $9.99. Additionally, we offer a variety of hardware options to facilitate development with our Sitara ARM processors.

Expandable systems

BoosterPacks are stackable, application-specific plug-in modules that allow you to easily expand the functionality of your LaunchPad to include functions such as capacitive touch, wireless sensing, LED lighting control and more.

Scalable, integrated software

Whether you prefer to work offline or get started in the cloud, we are committed to clean code examples, easy-to-use development environments and platform scalability.

What is a LaunchPad™ Development Kit?

Get started with microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad™ Development Kits from Texas Instruments. Choose from a variety of low-cost kits and BoosterPack plug-in modules. Scalable software tools provide multiple points of entry for programming your LaunchPad kit.
