TI's Cortex-M4F-based MCU support ARM's CMSIS
Texas Instruments has announced that its Stellaris Cortex-M4F-core based microcontrollers support ARM’s latest Cortex microcontroller software interface standard (CMSIS) for digital signal control applications. It is claimed that use of ARM’s CMSIS libraries help to simplify the implementation of floating point, single instruction multiple data (SIMD) and digital signal processing (DSP) operations. The MCUs also come with TI’s free StellarisWare software, providing code and royalty-free libraries for application support. The software suite includes the Stellaris Peripheral Driver library, Stellaris USB library, Stellaris Graphics library and Stellaris Boot Loader – all pre-programmed in ROM on Stellaris MCUs.
