mikroProg for Tiva is a fast programmer and hardware debugger. Smart engineering allows mikroProg to support all Tiva C Series and Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 devices in a single programmer. Outstanding performance, easy operation, elegant design and low price are its top features. It is supported in mikroElektronika's mikroC, mikroBASIC and mikroPascal ARM compilers, as well as in other ARM compilers.
This is the same programmer that previously was called mikroProg for Stellaris (MIKROE-1031). The hardware is identical; the name was changed in line with Texas Instruments' re-branding of the Stellaris line of processors that they had inherited from their acquisition of Luminary Micro in 2009.
The programmer communicates with a PC through a USB cable, from which it also draws power. New device support is achieved simply by downloading the latest version of the mikroProg Suite software.
The mikroProg for Tiva also can be used as an in-circuit debugger in conjunction with mikroElektronika compilers.
The programmer is connected to the microcontroller via a flat ribbon cable with a female IDC10 connector. You can design an appropriate 2×5 header into your system as explained in the user manual which you can download below. There's also an optional Cortex Debug adapter; see the Optional Recommended Products list below.
Many boards by mikroElektronika have the compatible 2×5 header, or pads to install one.

One nice feature of this programmer is how the ribbon cable goes into the device. It weaves through a slot on the PCB, so tugging on the cable cannot damage the internal connector.
Package Contents The mikroProg for Tiva ships with a USB cable, a DVD-ROM with software and drivers, and printed documentation which also can be downloaded below. The software also includes fully functional demo versions of mikroC PRO for ARM, mikroBASIC PRO for ARM, and mikroPascal PRO for ARM. All demo versions include a hex output size limitation. These compilers come with examples for easy prototype development.
