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 LaunchPad™ development kits for our microcontroller hardware to 80+ functional BoosterPack™ plug-in modules, we have the hardware you need to get your embedded development project off the ground.

Kits for every platform

Our microcontroller-based evaluation modules, LaunchPad development kits, feature built-in emulators for programming and debugging. Additionally, we offer a variety of hardware options to facilitate development with our Sitara ARM processors.

Expandable systems

Our stackable, application-specific BoosterPack plug-in modules let you easily expand the functionality of your LaunchPad development kit 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 development kit.
