ARMstrap – ARMing the Next-Generation Engineer

Adafruit 2170

ARMstrap | ARMing the Next-Generation Engineer. Charles writes –

I am trying to build a community of people who, like me, want ARM to be open, easily debug-able and easy to use on Mac, Linux and Windows. RMstrap a community of engineers determined to help make ARM prototyping easy and fun. We focus on ease-of-use, helping real-world engineers bootstrap interactive objects or environments.

ARMstrap Brainboard OX is an open-source electronics prototyping platform centered on the powerful STM32F4 ARM processor. The boards can be built by hand or purchased preassembled; the software can be downloaded for free. The hardware reference designs (CAD files) are available under an MIT license, you are free to adapt them to your needs.

Our Goals:

  • To provide an easy-to-use ARM development experience on Microsoft Windows, Apple Macs and Ubuntu Linux platforms.
  • To provide open-source ARM development that enables real-world engineers to bootstrap any project.
  • To have fun!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I think it is appropriate to identify Gareth at Blacksphere who designed the debug hardware, and wrote the high-quality debugging firmware. http://www.blacksphere.co.nz/main/index.php/blackmagic

    AFAICT it is Black Magic probe which enables the ‘it just works’ experience for ARMstrap.

    Without the Black Magioc probe, ARMstrap is yet another ARM board, and anyone can buy one with a similar MCU for well under $20.

    Black Magic probe is under GPL ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/blackmagicdebug/ ), so I believe that license requires recognition and identification of the source.

    Also, Black Magic probe is slightly lower cost than ARMstrap, and works on a range of MCUs.

    I have no commercial or personal connection with Gareth of Blacksphere. I’m posting because I think he should be recognised for the outstanding contribution to OPen Source Hardware, Open Source software, and embedded-system debugging.

  2. @gbulmer You do realize that attribution is given on the front page of armstrap.org right? I think they are probably trying to work together in an open-sourcy way. That’s a good thing.
