I am starting a home project and I would like to use the low-cost demonstration board to develop on.
I am wondering what are the limitations of this board, and if I should save my pennies for something better. I have a tight budget being this is a home project.
My code size should be relativly small, and I will be writing to the iron (C/ASM)
My project consists of this core, using 2 of the on-board 12-bit converters, 2 external 16-bit SPI converters (maybe three) at a rate of approx 33kHz sample rate which will be receiving all in parallel (probably bit-bang SPI), SCI port, and that is about it.
Processing needed: Phase detection between 4 signals (timer capture) peak detection with minor averaging, probably simple peak/slow decay function.
Sooo... This demo kit, do I need to burn a boot-loader into it, or can I handle programming/single step through the JTAG? I would like to reserve the SCI for sending the results of the calculations to the PC.
Thanks for any insight!
Thanks so much
