Technavio's analysts forecast the global evaluation board market to grow at a CAGR of 6.58% during the period 2017-2021.
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. All evaluation boards and kits provide evaluation software, cables, and documentation. An evaluation kit enables customers to evaluate the performance of the devices easily and quickly without the need to develop a full-fledged design.
