Texas Instruments (TI) has welcomed the newest member to its popular microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad ecosystem. At $19.99, the Hercules LaunchPad is the lowest cost evaluation platform for Hercules MCUs and provides an entry-level option enabling developers to gain familiarity with TI Hercules MCUs and evaluate the MCUs’ performance and safety features.

The TI Hercules LaunchPad is a modular, quick-launch evaluation kit that contains the development board, USB cable and documentation. On-board emulation and included Hercules MCU demos allow exploration of advanced safety features integrated in Hercules MCUs. The Hercules LaunchPad is available in two models – one based on the Hercules TMS570LS04x MCU and another based on Hercules RM42x MCU. Dual lockstep ARM Cortex-R4 based Hercules MCUs are intended for use in safety-critical automotive, industrial and medical applications needing to adhere to industry safety standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508.
