Tools to enable multi-platform development on the TI Stellaris Launchpad boards
Some tools which enable multi-platform development on the TI Stellaris Launchpad boards. The Stellaris Launchpad is a low cost development board created by Texas Instruments that comes with an ARM Cortex-M4F processor. You can get one here:
[Get a Stellaris Launchpad](
__Setting up a development environment__
First you'll need a cross compiler able to compile for ARM Cortex-Mx aka arm-none-eabi-. Some which are know to work:
* [summon-arm-toolchain by Piotr Esden-Tempski](
* [arm-eabi-toolchain by James Snyder](
* [Sourcery Codebench Lite](
More info can be found here [eLinux toolchains](
Grab StellarisWare from Texas Instruments: [Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad Evaluation Board Software]( You need to get SW-EK-LM4F120XL.
Inside StellarisWare directory you'll find many examples in the directory *boards/ek-lm4f120xl*. Try building project0 by going to that directory and running *make*.
To flash your Stellaris board from *boards/ek-lm4f120xl/project0*, run:
$ lm4flash gcc/project0.bin
Nice hacking!
