An evaluation board is a printed circuit board that has a microprocessor and minimal support logic. The evaluation board is used for testing and measuring devices such as sensors, transceivers, memory interfaces, and displays. The evaluation board is a tool for the development of different applications. It is completely assembled and tested with a surface mount board, which is integrated with access points that can test the desired device. This enables the user to connect and measure electrical characteristics and waveforms quickly. A wide range of evaluation boards for ARM, Cortex-M4, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M0, and 8051 processors are available in the market.
