Embedded processor development kits are sets of tools and components that are used to develop embedded processor design projects. The tools and components included in the kits vary, but generally they include a microprocessor, compile tools, debuggers, compilers, target boards, software development tools and libraries, and some form of user interface. The kits are designed to make the development of embedded processor systems easier and faster. They provide a good starting point for embedded application developers and reduce the learning curve for those new to the development of embedded systems. They also provide a great way for experienced developers to quickly prototype new ideas or perform small product runs.
