Alice EduPad

A low cost ARM trainer board
for Tiva and MSP432 Launchpads.

Great features and low price.
Great for ESP8266 development. 
Great for senior design projects.




MSRP:  $59
The Tiva Launchpad is
not included.

Alice EduPad main features:
  • Fully assembled and tested, not a kit
  • 4 pushbuttons
  • 4 user LEDs
  • Light sensor
  • Potentiometer
  • Temperature sensor
  • Speaker driven by timer or PWM
  • 7-segment display
  • Header for a 0.96" OLED, 128x64 graphic display, I2C interface
  • 2x16 LCD with 4-bit parallel interface or SPI serial interface
  • Header for a 2.2" TFT QVGA display
  • WiFi via an ESP8266 module.
  • 4 servo or relay outputs
  • 2 external analog sensor inputs
  • 12-bit DAC for generating analog waveforms
  • High efficiency dual H-Bridge for controlling two DC motors or one stepper motor
  • MicroSD slot (Memory card is not included)
  • Solderless breadboard included
  • 5V and 3.3V power-on LED indicators
  • External power supply using a smart phone charger 
  • 3.3V 1A regulator for ESP8266 web applications
  • Fully debugged program examples are available for downloading from Professor Mazidi's web site
  • Supports Tiva and MSP432 launchpads (Launchpads are not included)
  • 3 large holes allow it to be stored inside a binder for protection, it's also easier for students to carry
  • Ground point for scope
  • PCB size  6.25" x 3.1"


 Store it inside a binder,
easy for student to carry.



With TFT and OLED display.

Demo written by Roger Schaefer
for Energia IDE






The Alice EduPad is designed for the Tiva Launchpad, but it can be used by any microcontroller module via a simple adapter board. Below are some samples.


F4 Discovery board / STM32F401



NucLeo-L432KC / STM32L432




Feather M0 / ATSAMD21

Firebird12 / 9S12G128


This low cost trainer or the EduBase can be used for an ARM controller course.

Get sample programs from Prof. Mazidi's web site, it works like the EduBase.

Thanks for Professor Shu Jen Chen's help in ARM software and beta testing.  All ARM demo programs for the EduPad were written by him. Thanks Prof. Chen!


All sketches for the Energia IDE and Arduino IDE were written by Roger Schaefer. Thanks Roger!
