Digital signal control capabilities on TI’s Stellaris® ARM® Cortex(TM)-M4F core based microcontrollers highlighted by software interface standard
AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Enabling developers to streamline the design process, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced its Stellaris® Cortex(TM)-M4F-core based microcontrollers (MCUs) now support ARM’s® latest Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS). In addition to TI’s StellarisWare®( )software suite, ARM’s CMSIS libraries help developers realize the industry-leading benefits of Stellaris LM4F microcontrollers by simplifying the implementation of floating point, single instruction multiple data (SIMD) and digital signal processing (DSP) operations. For more information, visit www.ti.com/cmsis-pr-lp.
Stellaris MCUs are the industry’s leading family of 32-bit microcontrollers based on the ARM Cortex-M core. The Stellaris LM4F (Cortex-M4F) series of microcontrollers delivers leading analog integration, floating-point performance, best-in-class low power and are ideal for a variety of applications including scanners, microprinters, home/building automation, AC inverter drives and uninterruptible power supplies. Stellaris MCUs include TI’s free StellarisWare software, which eases development and speeds time-to-market with code and royalty-free libraries for application support. The software suite includes the Stellaris Peripheral Driver library, Stellaris USB library, Stellaris Graphics library and Stellaris Boot Loader – all pre-programmed in ROM on Stellaris MCUs.
Features and benefits
- A standardized software interface allows developers to make the switch from a competitive MCU to TI’s Stellaris microcontrollers and more easily migrate existing software to any Stellaris LM4F microcontroller.
- CMSIS DSP library includes source code, example applications and helps developers save time by including common DSP algorithms like complex arithmetic, vector operations, filter and control functions, etc.
- ARM’s Cortex-M4F core uses DSP SIMD instruction set and floating-point hardware that enhances Stellaris LM4F microcontrollers’ algorithm capabilities for digital signal control applications
