Description

The Hercules™ TMS570LC43x LaunchPad™ Development Kit is a low-cost evaluation platform based on the highest performance Hercules MCU TMS570LC4357 – lockstep cached 300MHz ARM® Cortex®-R5F based TMS570 series automotive-grade MCU designed to aid in the development of ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 functional safety applications.

This LaunchPad features connectivity options such as IEEE 1588 precision time Ethernet PHY DP83630 and has the capability in addition to the standard BoosterPack headers, for further expansion to an FPGA or an external SRAM using high density connectors for MCU’s parallel interfaces - EMIF, RTP and DMM.

The TMS570LC43x MCUs include many diagnostic features such ECC protection for CPU caches & other memories and a rich set of peripherals such as two 12-bit ADCs, programmable High-End timers, motor control peripherals (eQEP, eCAP, ePWM), Ethernet, FlexRay, MibSPI, EMIF and many serial communication interfaces.

This LaunchPad is pre-programmed with a Hercules safety MCU demo enabling users to easily learn about the key safety, data acquisition and control features of the Hercules MCU platform.
