What is a Microprocessor Development Board?

A microprocessor development board is a printed circuit board containing a microprocessor as well as the minimal support logic needed for a programmer to become acquainted with the microprocessor on the board and learn how to program it. Microprocessor development boards can also be used as a way to prototype applications in products. A development board usually contains a provision to be able to accept and run a program supplied by the user. For example, a programmer or developer can download a program through a serial port to a flash memory.

Types of Microprocessor Development Boards

There are several different kinds of microprocessor development boards at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including application type, packaging type and core supported. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

Microprocessor Development Boards from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of microprocessor development boards from several manufacturers. Once you decide if you need an 8 Bit Eval Board, 16 Bit Eval Board, 32 Bit Eval Board or Multimedia or PSOC board or kit, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific microprocessor development board application needs.

We deal with several manufacturers such as Cypress Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Keil, Microchip, NXP, Renesas Electronics, STMicroelectronics and Zilog, among others. You can easily refine your microprocessor development board product search results by clicking your preferred microprocessor development board brand from the list of manufacturers below.

Applications for Microprocessor Development Boards:

Eval boards can be used for various applications including applications processing, digital signal control, embedded communication, embedded control, audio applications and industrial control. They can also be found in building automation, automotive, motor control, consumer and medical applications and in programmer / debugger applications, networking systems, point-of-sale terminals home appliances and LCD solutions.

Multimedia boards & kits can be used for various applications including tablets, netbooks, portable media players and navigation devices, mobile and desktop internet devices, PDAs, media gateways and accessories, gaming consoles, HMIs, portable medical devices and automotive infotainment.

PSOC is used in several electronic devices including electrical toothbrushes and TiVo set-top boxes. It is also found in touch-sensitive applications like scroll wheels on portable music devices. In medical devices, a PSOC can be configured in order to serve several different functions and create a medical device on chip. This is done in order to achieve portability and high functionality at a low cost.

Choosing the Right Microprocessor Development Board:

With the parametric search, when looking for the right microprocessor development boards, you can filter the results by category. We carry the following categories of microprocessor development boards:

  • 16 Bit Eval Board
  • 32 Bit Eval Board
  • 8 Bit Eval Board
  • Multimedia
  • PSOC

Once you choose the microprocessor development board category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by core supported, application type and packaging type. You will be able to find the right 8, 16 or 32 Bit Eval Board or Multimedia or PSOC board or kit by using these filters.

Microprocessor Development Boards in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of microprocessor development boards you require is less than a full reel, we offer to our customers several of our microprocessor development boards in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

Future Electronics also offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
