Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has revealed that its Stellaris Cortex-M4F-core based MCUs now support ARM's latest Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS). According to the company, this allows developers to streamline the design process. In addition to TI's StellarisWare software suite, ARM's CMSIS libraries improve the MCUs by simplifying the implementation of floating point, single instruction multiple data (SIMD) and DSP operations.

The 32bit Stellaris LM4F (Cortex-M4F) MCUs based on the ARM Cortex-M core are engineered for scanners, microprinters, home/building automation, AC inverter drives and uninterruptible power supplies. The devices include TI's free StellarisWare software that boasts faster development and time-to-market with 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 Loaderall pre-programmed in ROM on Stellaris MCUs.

Developers can download the CMSIS hardware abstraction layer for Stellaris Cortex-M MCUs for free.
