Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) reveals its Robotic Evaluation Board (EVALBOT) for use with Micrium's �C/OS-III. This evaluation kit is a mini robot that allows developers to experience the Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3-based LM3S9B92 MCU in real-world applications that take advantage of the processor's integrated 10/100 Ethernet MAC/PHY, USB On-The-Go, CAN, and motion control capabilities.

Based on a complete analogue and embedded processing signal chain from TI, the kit consists of all the hardware and software needed for rapid assembly. In turn, this claims that developers can begin evaluation in about 10 minutes or less. The EVALBOT is available with a Stellaris-specific version of �C/OS-III book: "The Real-Time Kernel" by Jean J. Labrosse, revealing how a real-time kernel operates using Micrium's �C/OS-III and the Stellaris EVALBOT as references.

"The ability to perform pre-determined implementation exercises contained in the book on the amazing EVALBOT board will go a long way to demonstrate features and ease-of-use," said Jean Labrosse, the book's author and Micrium's president and CEO.

The Stellaris Robotic Evaluation Board plus Micrium's �C/OS-III book package is priced at Rs.9,292.51 ($199). The Stellaris Robotic Evaluation Board alone is priced at Rs.6,957.71 ($149).
