Which Arm microcontroller do I start with?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to know which arm controller to start with? I'm new to all of this and looking to get into ARM micro-controllers. So far I see the stellaris and stm32 line most supported. Are there any more? Which dev kit would you suggest?

 

I come from a PIC background.

Thanks for reading.

Your best bet are the ARm chips from ST or TI. STM32 has three hobby boards as of now( STM32VL, STM32F0 and STM32F4). TI has the Stellaris series of ARMs(M3, M4F).

I personally prefer the Stellaris controllers, but the STM32 has been becoming popular since the introduction of the discovery kits last year.

 

If you don't wish to fight alot with setting up the development environment, the $99 for the stellaris kits is worth it. The STM32 kits(~$20) are good too, but the dev setup is kind of difficult for a new person.

 

Hope this helps.
