Stellaris Line is now Tiva C & New Launchpad!


Recommended Posts

The 43oh's Blog post on this:

http://www.43oh.com/2013/04/ti-stellaris-launchpad-rebranded-to-tiva-c-launchpad/

 

And the Stellarisiti's forum post about this:

Note that the TI Estore has both the old and the new launchpad available, at the same price. Seems that two people on the Sterllarisiti post ended up ordering the old version instead of the Tiva version because of that:

Yes, unfortunately it is a bit confusing, but TI is phasing out the Stellaris brand for several reasons.  One big one is it is hard to pronounce in Asia.  Tiva is easier to say and therefore easier to sell.  The Tiva brand will help propel our expanding ARM MCU portfolio in the near future.

 

The current Tiva C LaunchPad is extremely similar to the Stellaris LaunchPad and should be cross compatible for the most part. As the Tiva brand expands over the next few quarters you will see quite a few changes from the former Stellaris lineup.  Hopefully this equates to better parts and higher customer satisfaction.

 

Again apologies for the confusion.

Mark: any chance you guys are looking at an MMU or some kind of memory controller for increased program code/data space?

That was the reason I didn't jump on the Stellaris Launchpad when it first came out...

probably more code space, but not an MMU.. Are you trying to run Linux on it, cause there are different  TI chips-Sitara to do that.

Trying to evaluate it for a client's project.  The Sitara does look like a better fit.  They have a 1MB object file on an ancient Atmel AT91 processor that they're trying to upgrade w/ PPP/Internet support :-P
