ARM ships inexpensive evaluation board

Only $150 to flex ARM

ARM has released a low-cost board created to help system engineers evaluate ARM processors quickly and easily. The AEB-1 (ARM Evaluation Board) costs $150 and ships with connection cable, power supply and basic documentation. It also comes with version 2.11a of ARM's software development kit (SDK). However, this is only licensed for 60 days' evaluation use. The board sports 128KB SRAM, 256KB Flash memory, ARM7DI 32-bit RISC CPU core and "everything necessary for potential customers to benchmark ARM code, learn ARM assembler and assess the ARM tool chain", the company claimed. The ARM SDK provides developers with a complete IDE hosted on Windows 95/NT 4.0, including project manager, compiler/linker, debugger and documentation. The AEB-1 can be ordered online. ®
