TomKraut 17 Posted March 2, 2013 Share Posted March 2, 2013 Hi everyone, after being absent from the forums (this one, 43oh and C2kCentral) for a few months I thought I might share something that may be of interest to this community. As some of you may have noticed, the Stellaris controllers have all but vanished from TI's lineup. If you try a parametric search on TI's website (if you can get it running...) there are only two types of LM4s showing up. The LM3s are completely gone, and there isn't a single Cortex-M3/4 with ethernet (if you don't count the Concertos). I was at the Embedded World trade show in Nuremberg this week and asked a representative at the TI booth about it. Astonishingly, he didn't have any information for me... However, I found a TI representative at EBV's booth who was a lot more willing (or able) to share: TI is planning to launch a lot of new LM4 controllers this year. The LM3's have been discontinued (although they are still being produced and you can still buy them) because TI was never satisfied with their quality. You may know that TI purchased Luminary Micro a few years back as a response to customer's demand for a Cortex-M3 series. The LM3 was their design and according to the representative, TI never managed to solve a number of problems with it, so they scrapped the line and started their own LM4. I was promised more information via Email next week, but unfortunately this will be under NDA, so I won't be able to share too much about it...
