S6E2CC Starter Kit

Cypress/Spansion has introduced an attractive, low cost development kit for its FM4 family of ARM Cortex-M4 microcontrollers.

The SK-FM4-176L-S6E2CC-ETH Starter Kit features peripheral devices which demonstrate the features of the on-board FM4 S6E2CCA microcontroller. It also has an Arduino-compatible interface for connection to external shields, giving developers the freedom to create a realistic system prototype.

The kit’s S6E2CCA microcontroller comes preprogrammed with an interactive application to test all of the on-board features using a virtual communication port to send message prompts, to input test parameters and to output test results.

The S6E2CC series of MCUs supported by the starter kit operates at 200MHz and supports a diverse set of on-chip peripherals which are ideal for high performance human machine interfaces and for machine-to-machine communication.

The MCU’s architecture allows for efficient data movement, providing a 16Kb Flash accelerator which enables zero wait state execution. Peripheral-to-RAM and RAM-to-peripheral data movement can be accomplished without CPU intervention either through an 8-ch DMA, or through the unique descriptor-system data-transfer controller.

In addition, the S6E2CC series provides up to 2MB Flash and 256KB of SRAM memory, more than 12 communication interfaces, memory interface and built-in motor control functionality.
