Recently I came across the new Tiva C Series TM4C1294 Connected Launchpad Evaluation Board by Texas Instruments (say that 5 times fast). It comes with a 120MHz 32-bit ARM Cortex M4 CPU, with 1 MB of Flash memory, 256KB SRAM and an integrated 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, which should allow you to connect your projects to a local network and beyond. It comes with 2 x 40 pin expansion pins (some of them PWM-capable) and two USB connections.

All this functionality sells for $19.99 and comes with:

  • Tiva C series Lanchpad Evaluation Board
  • Retractable Ethernet cable
  • USB debug cable
  • Free EK-TM4C1294XL TivaWare for C Series software downloads

I have ordered mine, but they are back-ordered for the next 2-4 weeks at least. Updates/tutorials to follow. Buy the board here.
