Starter-Kit M3A-2114G72A for 32172/32173 Group

This product has been decided to discontinue selling.

  • The evaluation board includes M32173F2VFP with 256-Kbyte flash memory by IC socket.
  • Free from restrictions on MCU resources (ROM, RAM or I/O) during evaluation via on-board debugger by SDI
  • The evaluation board comes with through-holes for extension connectors to all ports except those used for power supply and MCU control.
  • Includes dedicated debugger front end accommodating M3T-PD32R (emulator debugger for M32100T-SDI-E) to GUI operation
  • The evaluation board can operate stand-alone after programming flash memory
