Part Number : LM3S9B96
Function : Stellaris Microcontroller
Package : LQFP 100, BGA 108 Pin type
Maker : Texas Instruments
Texas Instruments is the industry leader in bringing 32-bit capabilities and the full benefits of ARM Cortex-M-based microcontrollers to the broadest reach of the microcontroller market. For curren users of 8- and 16-bit MCUs, Stellaris with Cortex-M offers a direct path to the strongest ecosystem of development tools, software and knowledge in the industry. Designers who migrate to Stellaris benefit from great tools, small code footprint and outstanding performance.
Even more important, designers can enter the ARM ecosystem with full confidence in a compatible roadmap from $1 to 1 GHz. For users of current 32-bit MCUs, the Stellaris family offers the industry’s first implementation of Cortex-M3 and the Thumb-2 instruction set. With blazingly-fast responsiveness, Thumb-2 technology combines both 16-bit and 32-bit instructions to deliver the best balance of code density and performance. Thumb-2 uses 26 percent less memory than pure 32-bit code to reduce system cost while delivering 25 percent better performance. The Texas Instruments Stellaris family of microcontrollers—the first ARM Cortex-M3 based controllers— brings high-performance 32-bit computing to cost-sensitive embedded microcontroller applications.
