Provides a selection of E-blocks™ that can be used for a wide range
of applications in microcontroller programming: both for learning and
• Can be used with a wide range of students - from technician to
• Can be used across many subjects in Engineering and Computer
• Saves a great deal of time in project construction
• Can be combined with our courseware to provide a complete
solution to learning ARM programming
• Includes an ARM programming board
• Include utility software for downloading code
• A comprehensive course with compilers and IDEs is available
• Supplied in rugged storage trays with cables, backplane and accessories.
The E-blocks standard ARM starter pack contains a range of E-blocks boards that can be snapped together to form a wide number of electronic systems. The standard starter kit includes an ARM microcontroller programmer, switch and LED boards, display boards – both quad 7-segment and LCD – prototyping boards, and sensor board. This kit can be extended by adding further items from our range of E-blocks boards and sensors. Once your system is built from E-blocks you can mount it on the metal backplane supplied with the kit. The resulting system can then be screwed down – for those who require a permanently built system to work from – or can be easily dismantled ready for subsequent projects and investigations. The E-blocks leads and accessories are shipped in rugged plastic trays which are convenient for storage and transport between labs.
The ARM device used is the Atmel AT91SAM7S128 based on the ARM 7 core. This is a 32 bit flash RISC device (programmed by USB) with an internal 32 x 8 multiplier and many internal peripherals including USART, SPI, TWI and SSC serial communication,10-bit ADC, USB and PWM outputs. The ARM microcontroller is mounted on a small daughter board which makes it suitable for project work.
A complete course in programming the ARM microcontroller in C(including IDE and C compiler) is also available.
The table below gives a list of the pack contents. Datasheets on any individual item are available on request.
