Hitex offers full and complete support for the ARM®­Cortex™ processor family: A broad range of excellent tools - from startup solutions up to highend JTAG debuggers:

Cortino: complete development suite with GNU Compiler, HiTOP IDE/Debugger and JTAG/SW debug interface for Cortex™-M microcontroller.
Supports all standard debugging functions like source code debugging, hard- and software breakpoints, data watchpoints, single-step, register and memory view and flash programming.

Tantino for Cortex-M:Start your ARM® Cortex™-M project using this compact and cost-effective debug interface. All run-control debug facilities like breakpoints, data watchpoints, single-step, register and memory view are supported. Serial Wire Viewer functionality like data trace (incl. graphical display of up to four variables of the data trace), semihosting (printf) and PC profiling is included in the shipment.

Tantino for Cortex-R4: Tantino for Cortex-R4 is the perfect development environment for applications using ASSPs and microcontrollers such as TI's TMS570 family that are based on the Cortex-R4 core. The system offers the same professional development environment and features than our other Tantino systems, but has been optimized for the special real-time requirements of the Cortex-R4 core.


The USB evaluation stick is a complete ready-to-run solution that provides an easy introduction to the features of the Cortex-M3 microcontroller. It is a small modular evaluation kit - in most versions there is an optional extension board available.

Hitex offers a broad range of evaluation sticks for the Cortex-M3 controller, available for NXP's LPC family and STMicroelectronic's STM32 family.

All of our USB evaluation sticks can be purchased online in the Hitex webshop at
