New Product News


The ARMmite, an SBC programmable from the PC with a USB port, is now available. Raising the standard for delivering value and price, the product offers functionality, performance, and ease of use for prototype and low-volume application development. 

Connecting from the PC using a USB port, ARMmite enables users to create code using their BASIC programs. The programming is processed at a rate of more than 10 million instructions per second and compiled according to ARM instructions consistently delivering the performance value comparable to applications written in C.

The ARMmite provides 5 KB for user code, 6 KB for variables and a 20 KB library supporting SP1, I2C, 1-Wire, and ASYNC protocols. Users download their programming to the computer board, which offers two square inches for prototype and other application development.

The board is based on a 60-MHz LPC2103 and is 50 mm 80 mm in size. It accepts a 7- to 16-VDC input, consumes approximately 350 mW, and can provide 500 mA at 5 VDC. The board also offers 1.75 square inches of prototyping space.

The ARMmite costs $49.
