Kit Overview


The Keil MCB1800 Evaluation Boards enable you to create and test working programs based on the NXP LPC1850 family of ARM Cortex™-M3 processor-based devices. The MCB1800 boards contain all the hardware components required in a single-chip LPC device-based system. The MCB1800 Evaluation Board and Starter Kit also includes the MDK-ARM Lite Edition Tools. These tools help you get started writing programs and testing the microcontroller and its capabilities. Sample applications that run on the MCB1800 evaluation board, and a Quickstart guide are included.

 

The MCB1800 Evaluation Board ships with the LPC185xLPC185x device that is a superset of several other device variants of the LPC18xx microcontroller series. The LPC185xis a high-performance, cost-effective Cortex-M3 microcontroller featuring up to200 kB of SRAM, and advanced peripherals including Ethernet, High Speed USB 2.0 Host/OTG/Device, LCD controller, and CAN 2.0B. Operating at speeds up to 180 MHz, the LPC185x also features two new configurable peripherals: a SPI Flash Interface and a State Configurable Timer. All members of the series include a Wakeup Interrupt Controller allowing automatic wake from any priority interrupt as well as four reduced power modes: Sleep, Deep-Sleep, Power-Down, and Deep Power-Down.

 

Ordering Information:

The MCB1800 is available as a stand alone evaluation board or as a starter kit which includes the ULINK-ME debug adapter.
