The Hercules™ TMS570LS12 LaunchPad™ Development Kit is an inexpensive evaluation platform designed to help you get started quickly in evaluating and developing with the Hercules microcontroller platform. The LaunchPad Development Kit is based on the IEC 61508 SIL 3 and ISO 26262 ASIL D certified TMS570LS1224, which is a lockstep ARM® Cortex®-R4F based MCU with integrated safety features and peripherals such as two 12-bit ADCs, programmable High-End timers, motor control peripherals (eQEP, eCAP, ePWM), USB, Ethernet, MibSPI and serial communication interfaces. Hercules TMS570 MCUs can help reduce the development effort of ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 functional safety applications.

The LauchPad features on-board emulation for programming and debugging, push buttons, LEDs and ambient light sensor & two standard 40 pin BoosterPack expansion connectors (only one header is populated) to support a wide range of plug-in BoosterPack modules for added functionality such as displays, wireless sensors & more.

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