Description

The Hercules™ RM42 LaunchPad™ is an inexpensive evaluation platform designed to help users evaluate and get started on development with Hercules microcontroller platform. The Launchpad Development Kit is based on the IEC 61508 SIL 3 certified RM42L432, which is a dual core lock-step ARM® Cortex®-R4 based MCU with features like 12-bit ADC, HET with programmable timer pins, eQEP, MibSPI and serial communication interfaces. Hercules RM MCUs can help reduce the development effort of IEC 61508 functional safety applications.

The LaunchPad comes pre-programmed with Hercules Safety MCU Demo enabling users to easily learn about the key safety, data acquisition and control features of the Hercules MCU platform.

The LaunchPad features on-board emulation for programming and debugging, on-board buttons, LEDs and ambient light sensor & the standard 40 pin BoosterPack-compatible expansion header to support a wide range of plug-in modules for added functionality such as displays & more.

Find additional information on LaunchPad Development Kits, supported BoosterPacks and available resources at ti.com/launchpad. Visit the LaunchPad Wiki for software downloads and other resources. Explore different applications on your LaunchPad Development Kit with BoosterPack plug-in modules. Demo software for Ethernet connectivity using lwIP can also be found on the Wiki.
