Yummy Cookie, come take a bite! New partnership between CadSoft and CooCox

Another impressive project comes with Eagle.

Cookie board is an open-source compatible 32-bit ARM prototyping platform based on ARM Microcontrollers, offered along with a free ARM development environment from CooCox. It helps you to enter into Embedded Development and makes it simple to add sensing and control to a huge range of projects, whether you are an engineer, designer, artist or hobbyist.

Cookie board expands the concepts of 8-bit Arduino into 32-bit ARM Cortex MCUs. The Cookie NuMicro edition is based on the Nuvoton Cortex M0 microcontroller M0516LBN. The M0516LBN with Cortex-M0 core can run up to 50MHZ, with 64KB Flash for program memory; 4KB Flash for data memory, 4KB SRAM, 2 UARTs, 2 SPIs, and 1 I2C. The Cookie NuMicro edition is fully compatible with Arduino, with 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a power jack, an ICSP header; it contains everything needed to support the microcontroller. There is also an onboard CoLinkEx for debugging purpose.

Cookie Board

Cookie board comes with CooCox development environment – a Free and Open ARM development tool environment. CooCox provides a complete tool kit including IDE, Flash Programmer, Graphical Pin configuration and code generation tool, and other assistant tools. The CoX interface, a unified peripheral interface defined by CooCox, makes it incredibly easy to reuse Arduino Shields and separate modules across different Cookie boards based on different ARM Cortex M0/M3/M4/M0+ MCU platforms.
