Recognising that the way to an engineer’s heart is via a development kit, Conrad Business Supplies has beefed up its offering with new additions from Microchip Technology, Texas Instruments, Freescale Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, 4D Systems, Embedded Artists and MikroElektronika.
The distributor now has over 5,000 semiconductor development and prototyping products, accessories and tools.
A specific product which is now part of Conrad’s selection of development kits and equipment include the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad, CC3200-LAUNCHXL. The evaluation development platform was designed by Texas Instruments for the CC3200 wireless microcontroller (MCU), a programmable MCU with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. The board features on-board emulation and includes sensors for a full out-of-the-box experience.
Also joining the extended product line up are the complete selection of TI LaunchPad Evaluation Kits, Freescale Freedom Development Platforms, STM32 Nucleo & Discovery Development Board, Microchip PIC32 chipKIT products and many other professional design and development engineering tools. These tools support rapid prototyping of embedded processor-based applications and various popular open-source third-party software and hardware accessories/add-on boards.
In addition, the FlowPaw designed by DSPRobotics, developed and manufactured by MikroElektronika is a kit specifically designed for the needs of aspiring makers, young engineers and to stimulate this next generation of developers. This ‘paw’ shaped circuit board is delivered with four modular sensor or actuator ‘claws’, that when used with the included FlowStone programming environment allow for an intuitive, graphically based method to get developing straight away.
Shawn Silberhorn, Supplier Business Development Manager, Conrad Business Supplies, commented on the addition of these new products: “Expanding our range of development and prototyping kits makes Conrad Business Supplies a first-choice partner for new innovative products to support developers and help them create innovative new technology.”
