Embedded Systems Dev Kit

View Cart

I ran most of my embedded systems projects on my overclocked quad-core in the lab. The projects grew (literally) as I added more boards, so whatever I was working on usually found a semi-permanent place on the desk next to me.

The Embedded Systems Dev Kit has everything I needed to start out and also gave me the foundation for a much larger project.

The Dev Kit has 4 Illuminato X Machina cells, a special 7-pin to USB IXM programmer cable and a 12 V power supply that can support up to 30 IXM cells.



Illuminato X Machina cell:
  • Weight: 24g
  • L x W x H: 1.87” x 1.87” x 0.25”
  • General Purpose I/O: 24 pins
  • Total I/O: 56 pins
  • Processor Type: 32-bit ARM
  • Processor Name: LPC2368
  • Processor Speed: 72 MHz @ 64 Dhrystone MIPS EEPROM: IC SRL EEPROM; 128 KB
7-Pin IXM Power Supply:
  • Input Voltage: 100-240 V
  • Input Current: 2 Amps
  • Output Voltage: 12 V
  • Output Current: 4.5 Amps
  • Onboard Power-on LED
  • Powers up to 30 IXM cells
7-Pin IXM Programming Cable:
  • 7-pin male header
  • USB Type A connector
  • 3 ft
  • USB 2.0 compatible; up to 3 Mbps via serial
