The NuMaker-M471KI is a development board for Nuvoton NuMicro M471KI, M471VI, and M471VG microcontrollers. The NuMaker-M471KI consists of two parts: an M471 target board and an on-board Nu-Link2-Me debugger and programmer. The NuMaker-M471KI is designed for project evaluation, prototype development and validation with power consumption monitoring function.
The M471 target board is based on NuMicro® M471KI8AE. For the development flexibility, the M471 target board provides the extension connectors of M471KI8AE, the Arduino UNO compatible headers and the capability of adopting multiple power supplies. Furthermore, the Nuvoton-designed ammeter connector can measure the power consumption instantly, which is essential for the prototype evaluation. The M471 target board includes the Embedded Trace Macrocell (ETM) to trace instructions, the embedded hardware IR Receiver to do pattern matching and decoding for a remote controller. A reserved ceramic resonator footprint on the development board can be applied for the 4~24 MHz high-speed external (HXT) clock.
In addition to the M471 target board, there is an attached on-board debugger and programmer “Nu-Link2-Me”. The Nu-Link2-Me supports on-chip debugging, online and offline ICP programming via SWD interface. The Nu-Link2-Me supports virtual COM (VCOM) port for printing debug messages on PC. Besides, the programming status could be shown on the built-in LEDs. Lastly, the Nu-Link2-Me could be detached from the development board and become a stand-alone mass production programmer.
