The Hercules RM42 LaunchPad is an inexpensive evaluation platform designed to help users evaluate and get started on development with Hercules microcontroller platform. The launchpad is based on Hercules RM42L432, which is a dual core lock-step ARM Cortex-R4 based MCU with features like 12-bit ADC, N2HET with programmable timer pins, eQEP, MibSPI and serial communication interfaces.
The LaunchPad comes pre-programmed with Hercules Safety MCU Demo enabling users to easily learn about the key safety, data acquisition and control features of the Hercules MCU platform.
The LauchPad features on-board emulation for programming and debugging, on-board buttons, LEDs and ambient light sensor & the standard 40 pin BoosterPack-compatible expansion header to support a wide range of plug-in modules for added functionality such as displays & more.
