Our Development Kits for TS-ARM Single Board Computers include all equipment needed to boot into the operating system of choice and get started with user application development. Single Board Computer sold separately.

Hardware Description

Using a Development Kit along with one of our Single Board Computers is the easiest way to get started developing systems and applications with embedded ARM based single board computers from Technologic Systems.  KIT-ARM includes an appropriate mix of the following items, based on the Single Board Computer selected:

  • Flash Memory Media (Compact Flash for TS-7200, USB for TS-7250 and TS-7260, SD Card with USB interface for TS-7300, TS-7400 and TS-7800)
    • Complete Debian Linux distribution for ARM
    • GNU GCC C/C++ compiler with full tool-chain enabling native application development
    • build tools and source for JFFS2 file system in onboard Flash.
    • hardware test routines and other example source code
    • Debian package system: apt-get, tasksel, dselect
  • USB Compact Flash reader (7200 only)
  • 5 VDC power supply  (international versions available)
  • DB9+DB25 NULL modem cable
  • Adapter cable from 10-pin header to DB9 (whenever this header is present on the selected board)
  • Various cables for connection to DIO, LCD, Keypad, etc. (whenever these headers are present on the selected board)
  • Utility Media (CD, USB Flash or SD Card, depending on the selected board) with complete source, manuals, example code, etc.

Single Board Computer is sold separately. For a description of what is included in the Kit for a specific SBC, please refer to the price & options section of this page. Contact Technologic Systems for further information.

Software Description

All Technologic Systems ARM Single Board Computers are pre-configured with your selected Operating System when delivered from the factory.  Therefore, using our computers is just a matter of putting together the basic cabling and equipment required to start up the board.  A Development Kit provides the required equipment to boot and run our Single Board Computers.  Also included in the Development Kit is a Flash Media device installed with a full copy of the Debian distribution of the Linux Operating System to be used with the SBC for embedded application development.  The following is a list of the Operating Systems and Distributions available and officially supported by Technologic Systems embedded computers:

  • TS-72XX: eCos/Redboot, Linux Kernel 2.4, TS-Linux and Debian (Woody and Sarge)
  • TS-7300: Linux Kernel 2.4, Linux Bootloader and Debian (Woody and Sarge)
  • TS-7400: Linux Kernel 2.4, Linux Bootloader, TS-Linux and Debian (Woody and Sarge)
  • TS-78XX: Linux Kernel 2.6, Linux Bootloader and Debian (Sarge and Etch)

Since the supplied TS-ARM CPUs are PC-class processors in everything but power consumption and performance, they have no problem running real PC-class operating systems such as Linux. By running the full version of Linux, a TS-ARM SBC can run the entire suite of applications contained in the Debian Linux distribution including the compilers for native embedded development.

The Debian Linux distribution is a full-featured and powerful Linux distribution based primarily on GNU tools. It includes everything necessary to easily run Linux. In addition, various original Linux utilities and installation tools are available to make system utilization and package updates easy. The default Debian Linux distribution provided by Technologic Systems contains compilers and everything needed for developing applications in C, C++, PERL, PHP, and SH.  Java, BASIC, TCL, Python and others are also available for Debian, but not installed by default; although these packages can be easily installed and updated with the apt-get tool when required.
