Cortex Flyer Base Board can be used as a general purpose peripheral board for various pluggable headers (PH Boards) available for different Cortex based microcontrollers. This board can also be used with other controllers that use same pinout configurations required for Cortex Flyer.

The Cortex Flyer can be used by professionals and hobbyist who prefer to have options for different controllers while having same peripheral connectivity.

The cortex Flyer along with the PH Boards is a very cost effective option and serves as a perfect platform to try your hands on different controllers based on Cortex M0, Cortex M3, ARM7 etc

The microcontroller that is used along with the Cortex Flyer can also be debugged/programmed with various other debuggers/programmers that support standard SWD connectivity options.

You can choose the PH Boards that you need from the selection option above.

You might also have to buy SWD (CoiNel CoLink Ex  Cortex JTAG/SWD Debugger).

  • Note: You will need to have atleast one of the above mentioned PH Board to be able to work with Cortex Flyer

ISP Programming

Programming can be done through the on chip boot loader using UART interface (UART0) and USB. You will need a Cortex Flyer Base Board for ISP programming. The board is tested for ISP through UART only.

The tool used for programming via UART is Flash Magic
