Kit Overview


The LPC4330-XplorerLPC4330-Xplorer is a breakout board for LPC4330LPC4330 Cortex-M4 based microcontroller. The LPC4330LPC4330 microcontroller has flash and flashless parts. For flashless microcontroller has 200KB SRAM, two 32KB SRAM blocks with separate bus. 64KB ROM containing boot code and on-chip software drivers. 32-bit OTP. For flash microcontroller 1MB dual bank flash, 136KB SRAM, Ethernet MAC, one USB 2.0  Device/Host/OTG interface with DMA support, one USB2.0 Host/Device interaface with DMA, on-chip full-speed PHY and ULPI interface to external high-speed PHY, 4 UARTS with DMA support, 2 C_CAN 2.0B, 2 SSPs, 2 I2C, 2 I2S, LCD controller, 8 GPDMA, up to 164 GPIO, 1 10-bit DAC, 2 10-bit ADCs, and RTC.


LPC4330-XplorerLPC4330-Xplorer has been developed in partnership with NXP semiconductors Inc. It is a compact and versatile evaluation platform for the NXP's Cortex-M4 based MCUs. NGX's evaluation platforms are generally not tied up to any particular debugger or compiler/IDE. However it is not practical to test and ensure that the solution would work out of box with all the available debuggers and compilers/IDE. As long as the compiler supports the particular MCU and the debugger supports the standard debug interfaces like the SWD/JTAG you can use this platform with any tool. The board is supported by extensive sample examples allowing you to focus on the application development.


Key Applications: Motor control and power management, Industrial automation and robotics, Medical, Automotive accessories, and Embedded audio.
