The NuMaker-NUC131U is a development board for Nuvoton NuMicro® NUC131SD2AEU microcontrollers. The NuMaker-NUC131U consists of two parts: an NUC131U platform and an on-board Nu-Link2-Me debugger and programmer. The NuMaker-NUC131U is designed for project evaluation, prototype development and validation with power consumption monitoring function. The NuMaker-NUC131U is suitable for automotive and industrial control applications developing which need reliable and robust CAN communication.
The NUC131U platform is based on AEC-Q100 grade 2 qualified NuMicro® NUC131SD2AEU. For the development flexibility, the NUC131U platform provides the extension connectors of NUC131SD2AEU, the Arduino UNO compatible headers and able to adopt multiple power supply. Furthermore, the Nuvoton-designed ammeter connector can measure the power consumption instantly, which is essential for the prototype evaluation. Finally yet importantly, the NUC131U platform is implemented a CAN bus interface with an AEC-Q100 qualified high-speed CAN transceiver to realize new CAN design.
In addition to the NUC131U platform, 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 becoming a stand-alone mass production programmer.
