An array of onboard sensors, including a stepper motor, LEDs and a potentiometer form a part of a kickstart kit for a range of microprocessors.
IAR Systems, which is based in Uppsala in Sweden and has representatives in more than 25 countries, has produced the package for Freescale Semiconductor's collection of low-powered ARM-9-based offerings.
Sujata Neidig, Freescale's i.MX product manager for the Multimedia Applications Division, said: "Our i.MX25 devices are ideal for a range of multimedia applications and IAR Systems' products will greatly ease the development process for embedded engineers."
Connectivity comes through a variety of interfaces such as USB and Ethernet options, while accommodating speeds of up to 400 MHz.
With high performances and low energy usage helped by the use of LEDs, the company believes this developer kit supports the requirements of both industrial and general embedded products as well as allowing customers to slash their bills for materials.
Furthermore, "example projects" and real-time operating system support packages are included.
