The First IoT-Capable LaunchPad in the TI Ecosystem
Texas Instruments (TI) has announced the latest addition to its popular microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad ecosystem – the Tiva C Series Connected LaunchPad. At $19.99, this Internet of Things (IoT), innovative platform enables engineers and makers to rapidly prototype a wide range of cloud-enabled applications, bringing expansive connectivity to any new or existing LaunchPad-based application.
The Tiva C Series TM4C1294NCPDT MCU on-board adds advanced Ethernet technology and the largest memory footprint available in the LaunchPad ecosystem. The robust performance and diverse peripherals on this platform can run multiple communication stacks simultaneously, allowing engineers to develop network gateways that can connect multiple endpoints to the cloud. Example applications include sensor gateways, home automation controllers, industrial communication/control networks, cloud-enabled gadgets/appliances and anything you choose to connect – the sky’s the limit.
